    What do you say, folks? What's his best work of all time?

Curt Swan was an artist that never had a "bad era." His penciling was strong out of the gate and stayed that way until the very end. The largest factor in deciding whether finished Curt Swan art is "really fantastic" or simply "fantastic" is just that -- the finishing. And the best inker for Swan is going to be a matter of taste, but Murphy Anderson is generally considered the quintessential Swan inker.

There's some truth to what you're saying, but obviously there must be some perticular story which contains especially striking visuals, isn't there?

I've been checking some stuff out and the OGN Planet Steelers, some of his last DC work, looked really great. Inked by Jerry Ordway and everything.

I also felt that him being inked by George Perez in "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?" did some amazing things to his pencils.

Those are the ones that I've been able to think of as of yet. Obviously the story where a new Luthor is introduced ( well, the battle-armour at least) is another high-point to me.

Hmm... this is tricky.
