  1. “For the Man Who Has Everything”

    I also am fascinated by early, early Superman, when he couldn’t fly, was a bit noir, and could be a real bastard.

  2. I didn’t read it but saw some pages and heard the story: The Day Superman Lied! Superman and Supergirl insult and alienate Jimmy Olsen, Girl Scouts, and a variety of others in honor of a Kryptonian holiday which is celebrated by complete honesty. Heavy story idea for kids.

  3. I’ve pretty much never read Superman except for the actual Death of Superman story. So I guess that one.

  4. I love the first two segments (Krypton & Smallville) of Donner’s Superman movie.

  5. I find myself going back and reading Death of Superman-Funeral for a Friend-Reign of the Supermen. A fun sequence that gets a bad rap.

  6. I’m going to have to agree with Mr. Head and say that Red Son is a damn fine story.
