Quote from: "Kurt Busiek"

Actually, #22 was the last one.  If you have a copy of #23, I want your dimensional gate!  [Of course, in this dimension, what was planned to be #23 wound up as LOCAL HEROES #3, but still...]


Oops!  No WONDER I have trouble trying to locate #23!    :wink:

Though the idea of a transdimensional comic book shop is an appealling one.  Don't like the current "Supergirl"?  Peter David's Linda Danvers just recently celebrated her 100th Issue.  Or check the back issue bins for "The Adventures of Supergirl" (though Silver Age traditionalists still deplore the Byrne "Maid of Steel" reboot that made Kara Zor-El the "Last Daughter of Krypton")...   :wink:

On a more serious note, where during the course of Volume Two should one read the "Supersonic" and "Flip Book" singles?  Thanks again.

After it.  "Supersonic" is actually the finale of the "Local Heroes" set o' tales, and the flip book is the prologue to THE DARK AGE.

Hi, Stan, haven't seen you in a while.  Finding all your underwear okay?*

*for those now confused (.e., everyone but me), I first met Stan in the underwear section of a department store in San Diego in 1989.  Both of us were attending the San Diego Con and had underpacked...

Found them allright, thank you. But now, because of my old age, I wear nappies...

BTW, who changed my avatar?

Aww, c'mon.  Kal-L is a Brit while the real Stan Lee is a NYC native.  He just doesn't believe you really are Kurt Busiek.  Well, that's his business.

Kurt, here's some loaded -- albeit typical -- questions.  Just how strong would you write Superman as being?  Should he have limits?

Before you answer, let me paraphrase Walt Simonson's answer to this: He's as strong he needs him to be for the story he's writing.

Does Walt's answer jibe with your own take on this?

Pretty much.  I hate stat lists with a passion.

My answers are, "I'd write him as wicked strong," and "Sure, but I don't think the audience should know them in anything more than a general sense.  Even real people have good days and bad days, and if their limits fluctuate, why shouldn't Superman's?"
