    Please?
    I would be so down for a sequel .

    It would be kind of interesting that the original was like a transition from the Golden Age to the Silver Age, so another book would be the transition from the Silver Age to the Bronze Age.

    (Would Yang make fun of Lois's blackface moment? I wouldn't put it past him).

    Congrats to Yang (who also won best book overall with Dragon Hoops) and Gurihiru!
    Great. Superman getting some recognition and for a story that truly deserves it.
    Power with Girl is better.

    This.

    I feel no need for a sequel at all. Some things are better on their own and I fear forcing a sequel would just cheapen the whole thing. But if Yang has another story in him like this and it's something he's as passionate about as he was Smash? Then yes, absolutely let him do it.

    Don't do it simply for the sake of doing it, don't ruin Smash by trying to capitalize on its success....but don't stop Yang from doing more, if he's got it in him either.

    Dammit, you got me with Discowing.

    Worst costume ever but damned if I'm not a sucker for anything and everything Nightwing related.

    Oh, that it's so terrible and he wore it unashamedly is what sells it for me. Anyway, I love those big themed 80 page specials DC does and I wish they'd expand them beyond just holiday or seasonal stuff. They're usually fun and good ways for new talent to showcase themselves.

    Youtuber LioConvoy's Reviews uploads a positive review on the Superman Smashes The Klan comic, giving his thoughts on it.

    No matter how many reboots, new origins, reinterpretations or suit redesigns. In the end, he will always be SUPERMAN

    He then followed it up with a livestream being joined by Michael French from the Youtube channel RetroBlasting, where they both watch two videos from that ComicGates Youtuber TheFourthAge where he criticizes Superman Smashes The Klan and they both commented and completely destroy his arguments.

    I've said before that it is not only acceptable to punch a nazi whenever you find one, but a civic duty you should perform with pride.

    I think I might want to extend that to anyone who talks smack about Smash. Because if you don't love this comic then you're a crime against humanity.

    What's cool is that the radio show had not 1, not 2 but 5 Superman vs Bigotry stories. Seems Superman going up against bigots was a popular formula on the radio show

    He's writing a Batman Superman Future State mini. That should be fun.

    As always with Yang, he never gets to just write SUPERMAN. He always is being given an in-continuity Superman project when it's part of some BIG SHAKEUP event (Truth, Future State). Just give the guy a chance, DC. Jeez.

    I feel this but I’m also excited to see how Yang writes Pyg and Supes interacting. That will be... interesting. Also it is fascinating to me that Pyg of all the Morrison villains has seen such popularity and usage.
