> I used to own them all. There was nothing in those weekly issues that stood out. Captain Marvel had a so-so series but that's about it. The Superman stories were just pages and I don't remember a thing about them. Someone mentioned a few years ago that DC was going to collect them into a tpb but nothing ever materialized. Unless you found them as a lot and for a very inexpensive amount, I wouldn't bother with them.

Neil Gaiman was supposed to write the last Action Comics Weekly story that tied all the threads of the stories together into one logical story that took up the whole issue. It was all about Superman and Green Lantern going to hell and it was kind of cool to read. I think it was called "Superman and Green Lantern: The Legend of the Green Flame" and it had art by Mike Allred.

I'd read Action Comics Weekly if only to see how Neil Gaiman ended the story.

- l.k.

I've read all the ACW issues, as well as LEGEND OF THE GREEN FLAME. It doesn't tie together all the various storylines, and wasn't meant to do so. It was just meant to use all the various characters that had appeared (Superman, Green Lantern, the Phantom Stranger, etc.) in one story. It did that and gave us a darn enjoyable read in the process. (Unfortunately, Wild Dog got the shaft and did not appear. as I recall.)
