Hi Telle,

Thanks for the pointer.  I checked the site and went into a panic - you are right, all of the articles are blank!

But it turns out that the articles are still there (in fact, if you log in and "edit" an article, you will see the content come up in the editor).

But previewing the article and viewing the article don't work, so don't try saving any changes just yet.

It turns out that the version of the Wiki package that is running is so old, that an operating system update that took place underneath it broke it.

The only solution is to update the wiki software itself, something I haven't done since 2011.  I don't know what updating such an old wiki will do, but it is the only choice at this point.

Off to adventure!

Hi Rao! Looks like the great Supermanica is no more, once again. Ah well. I don't expect anything to live forever, but just in case you doidn't mean for it to be so (my dearest hope), I  thought I should let you know. Just looking up the parallel universe entry.

I even managed to read some Jimmy Olsen comics during The Shutdown!

Superman: The American Way, the Epic Poem of Superman, was originally posted on this site a few years ago.

Author and scholar Michael Mautner currently plans to read all 64 Cantos in installments, over the course of a couple of months.

Here is his reading of the first canto, "The Good Fight":

the original version of the text is still online here.

Ha! Fantastic. Just like the old Marvel cartoons of the 60s. Only better, 'cause it's Swan!

Hope the old gang's riding out this crazy crisis safely in their respective fortresses.

Good thing I arrived a day early -- was tough climbing up to the Fortress door.  In the past, there were times when snow would almost block the keyhole.  Must be global warming...

Amazing -- my old access code still works.  It took a while for me to remember it, but I'm back with a cake again.

Hmm... no trace of my last visit, not even the cake platter.  I guess SOMEONE still drops by the old place besides myself.

Well, time to light the candles.  "Happy Birthday, Kal-El."

Whew.  Now for the long trip back.  Don't know how many times I can continue this ritual, but--

Wait.  The candles are out already?  Where's the cake? 

All right, hope you enjoyed it.  See you in another four years!

I'm sorry I haven't responded sooner, but I did try; writing about Jaye was just too painful, so I've avoided the site since May.
I decided to return because I just checked Wikipedia, which says that today, Feb 17, 2020, is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Curt Swan. Thought you should know.
Again, I'm very sorry for not having posted sooner.

My problem is I don't trust anyone at DC to touch what I still consider the "real" DC Universe. I'd honestly rather the pre-Crisis DCU stay dead, or in limbo or whatever it is now, than to be reactivated and placed into the hands of the powers-that-be at DC today.

But whatever; the characters are the property of DC Comics and they can do what they want with them. But I'm out, even if the cover price reverts to what it was in 1985, too.

My advice to fans who pine for simpler times, when continuity made sense, editors did their jobs and heroes were heroes: Support the reprint lines. The binding is hit or miss, the reproduction is often lousy and there's a good chance the book you most want will be canceled, but it's still a better bet than monthlies.
