    Yeah, I'm something of a Sliver Age wanker myself. I have tons of the old Superman and Superman family comics. I think my favorite Superman silver age power was super ventriloquism.

    I'm familiar with it, although I haven't read any. I've never read much from publishers outside of DC and Marvel, but I've heard the reboot is pretty good. I'll check it out!

    It is great...he uses the character to explore all the different eras of superman...the writing and the art also reflect the era...

    DCs 52 is awful, reading The Boys, Ultimates, New Avengers exclusively.

    Also love Silver Age LSH
