I really loved his "Justices League & Society Meet the Seven Soldiers of Victory" 1972 trilogy in JLA #s 101 & 102 (I missed #100)--just reread those into the ground.
From all accounts, he was a really nice guy.

He wrote some favorite Superman stories in the '70's.  Those years would have been much darker for me without them.

Rest In Peace, sir.

Jason Todd REALLY hated what was done to him after the Crisis!   Wink

Wow...  I hope DC changes their minds about these books and DOES offer solo Superman Silver Age books.  I MAY have to go after the Digests and get the reprints THEY have in color, though I'd probably COMPLETELY ruin my eyes that way!   Wink

It's too bad the PTB decided profits weren't good enough on the Showcases.  I don't know if they CAN print the stories on cheaper paper!

I should have added that Amazon is offering full-color, Silver Age Supergirl tpb's, World's Finest (Batman-Superman) tpb's, Justice League tpb's, Legion of Super-Heroes tpb's, Flash tpb's, and Green Lantern tpb's, but no full-color, silver-age Superman solo tpb's, which is really too bad, because I'd buy them--discovering the Showcase Presents: Superman volumes at my local Borders is what drew me back into this hobby more than 10 years ago.

Maybe DC is waiting until SPOILER Supes returns to life in the Justice League movie in November, but, if so, they haven't told Amazon.

According to the GCD, Superboy initially appeared as a separate character in the Jan '45 issue of More Fun Comics; when Superman's 2-page origin was published in Superman #1 (Summer, 1939), there was no mention of any career as Superboy--perhaps Whitney Ellsworth (de jure editor) and/or Jack Schiff (de facto editor) waited until the perceived audience for that issue "aged out" before giving Supes' origin a retro-fit.

I remember reading, I believe on the Marvel Masterworks DC Message Boards, a contributor named Drew Moore, who was/is a colorist @ DC, saying that he heard from DC staffers that sales on the last (2008) Showcase Presents: Superman were disappointingly low, as may be evidenced by a recent trip to AmazonBooks Land, where several new full-color Silver Age collections are/will be offered for sale this year and next, but none of them devoted to the Silver Age solo adventures of Superman.

As near as I can decode the text, it may just be saying that DC is offering a digitally-cleaned up jpg of the picture:

A physical poster would be awesome.  Based on the comments posted at DC, there are others who agree.

 S!

Saw an article on CBR that implied this is being offered as a poster by DC, but no details fleshed out that claim. If anyone knows where it's available, I'd love to have one.

I think the Showcase line ended because DC is focusing on the new "Silver," "Bronze" and "Golden Age" trades, much the same way Marvel abandoned their "Essential" line in favor of "Epics." But at least in both cases they've upgraded to color.

 Unfortunately, while the Marvel Epics are jumping around chronologically, DC seems determined to reprint everything in order, so Silver Age Superman is still a good ways off and the Bronze Age material may not show up til I'm dead.

The way I heard it, royalty deals were much more fair once the 70s rolled around, which cuts into the profit margins.  But they are putting out omnibuses of Bronze Age JLA and Brave and the Bold (and soon House of Secrets and Swamp Thing) so there's always hope. But if they keep to the "finish one Age before starting the next" rule, we've got a long wait for BA Supes, Bats and Wonder Woman.
