Nice one, Klar! It never even occurred to me that he had a birthday. I was going to say something stupid like "I miss his art", but then I realised that I don't have to. There's as much Curt Swan art around, even in my modest collection, as I could ever wish for. It's still around, and as long as we keep looking at it, so will he be.

I just wish he were still around to tell the present incumbents how it's done, because I must say, I'm finding the art in the Superman titles a bit insipid...

Swan really did draw the best Superman. I loved the realistic way that he drew Superman.

Just out of curiosity, how old would Swan be today?

Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.
