I think that issue of Booster Gold was the first appearance of post-crisis. Weirdly enough I remember how one fan caught on because Superman did not recognize the Legion ring he was wearing. Not sure how B.G. ended up with that ring since the Legion was 500 years or so after the 25th century he was from.


You're probobly right on the Booster Gold issue yes - I just recall it feeling very much pre-crisis Superman, it had that feel and look about it, but checking the dates shows that issue is July '86 dated while Action Comics #583 and DC Comics Presents #97 are both dated Sept. '86

The stories in all three of these books clash with each other markedly - and in real terms DCCP #97 IS the final published appearance of the Pre-Crisis Superman at that time. A bleak story to go out on frankly, but the hugely disorganised fragmented way that Pre-Crisis Superman gives way to the Post-Crisis version shows off the reality that there was no clear cut-off point to that era. Pre-Crisis Superman didn't exit with grace, he just faded away and somewhere, somehow, suddenly *stopped* existing.
