I still haven't seen the 1960 story "The 'Superman' From Outer Space," on this website at all.  What the heck is taking so long?

Gosh, I'm sorry.  I'm sure it'll be up soon.  You'd better check the site every single day.

I gave up even having a personal website some time ago, due to the time and energy it takes to get it updated and all... I can't imagine all the time it would take to scan a comic book story, crop it, touch it up and post it on the site.  OH! And work on K-Metal, too...

Give the guy a break...

Sometimes the humor in a situation gets the better of me, hence my flippant response.  The reason the story hasn't been scanned is because I haven't read it, I never knew about it, and I don't own it.  In order for me to post a story, I have to like it and/or think that it ads something important to the legend.  Since I haven't read this tale, I can't judge it.  And since I don't own a copy, I couldn't scan it even if I wanted to.  If you'd like to see it on the site, feel free to buy a copy and scan it then send the scans to me.  A number of other people have done this in the past, adding some great stuff that I never even knew about to our collection of online tales.

Also, as has been mentioned in the site FAQ, Superman Through the Ages! is pretty much in "hold" mode as it has served its purpose.  I'm not really updating it or adding much, aside from the K-Metal comic.  So on second thought, even if you did send in scans of this story, they might just sit in my inbox.

In the meantime, the original poster can learn more about the story at:

http://www.superman-through-the-ages.com/wiki/index.php/Hyper-Man

Unless he/she already has the comic, and then its easier to read that than the story online.
