DC did reprint some of the Bronze Age Batman stories in the last (the very last) Showcase Presents, Batman, no. 6, which came out 2 1/2 years ago, though I suppose it's arguable that these aren't Bronze Age but "In-between Eras Age", since the stories first appeared while DC's sales were in the doldrums of the early '70s, before things took off again in '75.

I just dug my "Curt Swan: A Life in Comics" paperback out, and, on page 151, Schaffenberger is described as preferring Forte's inks on Swan to those of George Klein; not quite the same thing, but high praise indeed.
And now, for no discernible reason, I will end this post with an afro   Afro

My favorite story was far and away The Car. It's about what happened to the big, green, car in Action #1 and what became of "Butch", the thug from the first story. It's definitely a Golden Age story. Written by Richard Donner, none the less! The best stories were the ones that didn't get all the media attention, IMO. Actionland was clearly a love letter to the Silver Age. Even the Brad Meltzer story was really good. If you can find it, I highly recommend it.

The date is April 20th, 2018. Two days ago, milestone issue Action Comics # 1000 came out, and brought with it the return of Superman's trunks. Every story in the issue makes it look natural and marvelous, like they were never gone at all- save the one drawn by Jim Lee, in my own opinion.

Lee should probably stick to the high collar.  Tongue Everyone else, keep up the good work!

A few sources are reporting today the death of Michael Fleisher, comic book writer and author of the Superman Encyclopedia.

Fleisher was the guiding spirit of the Supermanica project here and a great inspiration to me personally.

I don't know if anyone will ever see this but apparently the trunks are back as of Action #1000!

That JLA three-parter is great no matter how you slice it, but to fully appreciate it, you really need to read the year or two worth of issues that led up to it.  Between Denny O'Neill (who's on record as not really liking "super" heroes anyway) and Michael Fleischer with his ham-fisted "social relevance and pretentious "first year lit major" writing style, JLA was one of the most painful reads in comic history.  When Len shows up with that story, its an astonishing revelation that maybe the Justice League isn't an inherently unworkable concept after all.

All told, for all the potential you'd expect from an idea like the JLA, good runs have been very much the exception and not the rule.

I think DC has a real problem marketing Superman in general; they've turned him into kind of a corporate albatross through their mismanagement of the character.

That said, there's a larger pattern emerging with these reprint books: until the "Silver Age" Justice League material was completely reprinted, there was no "Bronze Age" JLA collection, and the same with "Teen Titans.". That suggests we won't see any Omnibuses or tpb's of SA Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman until the Golden Age material runs out.  So unfortunately, we've got at least a couple years to go for SA Superman and - -even worse for me -- still longer before BA Batman.
