The Super-Skrull Joins The Superman Family



The Superman titles of my youth may seem kind of hokey by today's standards, but they were endlessly creative.  This was a time when you couldn't spend six months on one plotline, each issue was its own epic, so the editors and writers were constantly coming up with wild  new conflicts and concepts for our hero to face.  Add in great artwork by by the likes of Curt Swan or Jim Mooney, and you had stories that I just devoured for all the crazy ideas contained within.  Grant Morrison is about the only current writer to tap into that side of Superman for his stories, and it's no wonder his work with the character has been so well received.

#300 will be a worthy of an anniversary issue hopefully. I am also quite fond of #301. Cool Suggestions...

Exactly. Damn cool Steve Rude art for the Super-Skrull. Love it seamlessly it blends in with the old Silver Age art.
