It's funny . . . I have been coming here off and on for a couple of years or so now, and yet it never occurred to me to sign the guestbook before.  Well, there is a time for everything.  I am in my thirties, and I have been a Superman fan all of my life, particularly of the Elliot S! Maggin novels, of which I have gone through numerous copies each (thank Rao for used bookstores and!), along with all the great Pre-Crisis comics all the way back to the Golden Age.  In all the years of post-Byrne revamping down to now, when DC is bringing the Pre-Crisis back in a big way, what with 'Birthright', Jeph Loeb's stuff in general, Krypto, the REAL Supergirl and so on, I have stood by the character despite the fact that the Pre-Crisis has the best interpretation of the character EVER, and especially when Maggin did it.  Your site has been like a revelation, a chance for me to reread the stories I grew up with and to catch the ones I've missed, plus invaluable reference materials for anything one may not know, even after years of practically obsessing over this character.  For the record, I am a huge fan of the Smallville TV show as well, but even so, I prefer the old school all the way!  Alan Moore's last true Noodles story, Kingdom Come, et al, and especially George Reeves.  Not so much the show itself, but somehow he comes closest to the way I see the character, except for Alex Ross's art or the Fleischer cartoons.  The site is fantastic, the incredible resources available are awesome, and I can't say enough good things.  Thank you so much for keeping alive my two favorite heroes: Superman from the Silver Age up to (but not really including) the Iron Age, and the Earth-2 Superman (or Golden Age, but just sorta-kinda).
