Asking only the hardest of hardcore Superman fans who's their favorite writers, so I can look into TPB's. Thanks.



Basically, much of the Superman runs from the early to mid 90's were the best. Dan Jurgens, Karl Kessel (SP?), Roger Stern, Louise Simonson, etc, were some of the best runs I've ever read.

Jeph Loeb was either hit or miss. He was nothing spectacular, IMO, but you could check him out if you want to see for yourself.

John Bryne's early work on Superman is good, but thought balloons aren't for everyone (personally, I'll never understand what the big deal is about that).







It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
