"I really enjoyed <i>Secret Origin</i> (even if the title is a kind of fannish joke. Not much secret about that origin). Johns, Gary Frank, and John Sibal did a good, if Silver Agesque version of reconciling different incarnations and…"
Our esteemed Jeff recently created a thread in this forum about Superman's books and various noteworthy creators since around the time of Crisis on Infinite Earths. It is a fine thread, but it has its own goals and flow. And it spurred in me the willingness to discuss a somewhat tangential subject matter: the way in which Superman's perception, and specifically his…See More
"Robert Kanigher, as others pointed out, sure seems to have perceived his own job as putting out "done in one" stories. That was certainly typical of the time and should not count as criticism.
But he had a wider range than those…"
"Personally I liked the Martin Pasko stories circa 1977 and at least some of the Cary Bates stories of the same general time frame. The Faora stories were particularly good.I suppose it is hard to write stories with both Superman and Batman…"
"I wonder if the 1980s dailies have been collected. They run from 1978 to 1985 and where generally called "The World's Greatest Superheroes", but soon enough began to feature almost exclusively Superman."

"I liked the Daredevil guest appearances in these issues, as well as the choice of character for National Force's front man. It would be natural to expect the Avengers instead of DD to go and rescue Cap from his predicament, but it would…"
"I like LastPass well enough. It is great for many uses. But for desktop use Dashlane is superior, often logging things on automatically.Now that LastPass free is so restricted, I decided to pay Dashlane. Haven't used it on…"
"If Wolverine and the Punisher can create a virtual path of dead bodies and still be called heroes, I guess so can Harley.At least far as DC's marketing department cares, anyway.Myself, I wish there was a bit more concern about those things.But…"
Glad you are still here.I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for the full details. Have a nice day Thanks God bless.
