Indeed a great loss for comics fandom, especially those of a certain age.  Many of the first Superman images to sear themselves into my young brain were created by Adams: Superman flying left to right with his left arm extended on the cover to Superman #252...a figure later added over the book's title for many months, and featured on one of the first jigsaw puzzles I ever assembled.  Superman running with his arm extended in a "punch" on merchandise from school supplies to bed sheets to t-shirts.  Superman breaking those Green-K chains on the over of issue #233.  That little Superman head that showed up on the JLA "roll call" on many covers.  Adams will always be remembered for his Batman, but his Superman was every bit as awesome.

Anyone still reading these boards (you MUST be out there...) will probably remember my tribute on my "Confessions of A Superman Fan" page (  I also added a farewell tribute on my personal blog, if anyone's interested:

RIP Neal

As you may have heard, the legendary Neal Adams has passed. Due to complications from sepsis. Most well known, of course, for his work on Batman, Green Lantern and Green Arrow, and Superman vs. Muhammad Ali. He was 80. You will be missed, sir!  Cry

The artwork for this piece was mailed via United States Postal Service to Superman Through the Ages! in February, 2005.

Finally got it scanned.

Interesting, I might watch some of it now. Based on seeing the Crisis stuff, I was also sure that I would hate it.

I didn't hate what I saw of Krypton, but that got cancelled pretty quickly. And as happy as I was to see Kara back, it looks like that show is on the chopping block as well. (What the new execs did to the Swamp Thing show is worthy of the Phantom Zone projector.)

I've seen the first 3 episodes and I have to say I like it a lot better than I thought I would. Admittedly, that's easy since I thought I wouldn't like it at all.

My only exposure to Tyler Hoechlin's Superman prior to this was a few Youtube snippets of his appearances on "Supergirl" and the big "Crisis" thing and honestly I wasn't that impressed.  On this new show, he's much more appealing and I've totally embraced his interpretation of Superman/Clark.  After the Snyder films, it's frankly a joy to see Superman played as such a relentlessly optimistic, decent and centered character, and even though I've never been into the whole "Superman as a dad" thing in comics, I have to say it's really working for me, here.  The kids are also far more likable than I expected and at least so far not totally drowning in typical CW teen soap excess.  

If there's a weak spot for me, it's Lois, but I'm working on it.   I'm on the fence about the use of her dad as a "frenemy" to Superman, and I'm giving it time.  The move to Smallville is another change I wasn't sure I'd like, but so far it's working for me, and really there's no reason why Superman needs to live in Metropolis if he can get anywhere on Earth in a second anyway.

The cinematography, special effects and music have been, so far, more on par with a motion picture than a TV show and are certainly miles above anything I remember on the CW's "Flash" show.

Overall, a nice surprise.  Allowing for the fact that no one will ever make a show or movie about "my" Superman, it's a happy compromise to watch a show that changes a lot of the surface details while staying true to the basic character.  For now at least, I'm a fan.

Not a fan of the title, though.  Hard to believe it's the best they could do. Given the focus of the show, I wish they would've given a nod to the Bronze Age and called it "Superman Family."
