Fraser Sherman replied to Steve W's discussion Books about Comic Books
"I don't think it's been mentioned in the list yet--The Ten Cent Plague is a great book about 1940s/1950s anti-comics crusaders and paranoia (depressing at times, but certainly informative)."

"Yeah, I've noticed that myself. But lord, those are some awesome covers."

"Reading the Showcase Superman collections I noticed one of the Silver Age tricks for giving Superman a challenge was when he had to pretend he wasn't there — "If SPECTRE discovers I'm helping James Bond they'll shut up shop…"

"And equally weird, the great genius doesn't even realize what night it is until after the shooting, when it sinks in why Superboy was really there."

Fraser Sherman replied to Commander Benson's discussion Deck Log Entry #198 Kryptonite---a Glowing Reference (Part Three)
"Very interesting, with a lot of stuff (and varieties of kryptonite) I didn't know. I had no idea gold k didn't have an origin. For bizarre red k effects, the story where Krypto not only turns into a female dog but has puppies takes the…"

Fraser Sherman replied to Commander Benson's discussion Deck Log Entry # 197 Kryptonite---a Glowing Reference (Part Two)
"One question I don't think anyone answered (but if they did, someone on this list will know) is why some artifacts from Krypton (like the statues from the El family crypt) turned to green k while others just stayed unchanged, except for…"

Fraser Sherman replied to Commander Benson's discussion Deck Leg Entry # 196 Kryptonite---a Glowing Reference (Part One)
"Agreed, Commander. On the list of Roy's A-SS retcons I'd also add Roy's retelling of Starman's origin to show Ted Knight as a genuine spoiled playboy (as Thomas put it, they couldn't all be faking it like Bruce Wayne did)…"
