I've always preferred the 1950s Wayne Boring era of Superman when the strip was more lighthearted and barmy.
Yes, I love that era too. I was so glad when they did those Showcase presents black and white collections of that era.
I recommend an IDW book, 'The Golden Age Superman' which reprints late 1940s/early 50s Superman Sunday newspaper pages. Wayne Boring art, fun stories.I've read Superman on and off all my life, but the only contemporary ones I really enjoyed were the ones when he was dead and replaced by four pretenders. :-D I was enjoying the current de-powered stories but they're all over the place with poor continuity between the four titles so I've given up on it.
Thanks, I'll definitely check that IDW book out. :)I'm quite enjoying the current storyline, especially the Action Comics chapters. I like that they're quite loosely connected as I stopped getting Superman/Wonder Woman and don't feel as if I'm missing anything. The previous Superman crossover, Doomed was very closely connected and it was a bit of a pain having to follow several comics of varying quality to understand the story.
I do like Adam Kuder's artwork on Action so perhaps I'll stick with it for a while longer. I didn't follow Doomed, but good point about how quality varies between titles when they do these crossovers.
