I simply can't find a common barometer to measure a Hulk adventure vs. a Krypto adventure.  Neither is scientifically plausible, neither is generally agreed upon as great literature in the subjective world of literary critique.

So the only thing I think that approaches something objective is that both had adventures, and people can appreciate one or the other or both.

I wonder where you are going with childish, though.  I enjoy the Simpsons but detest Family Guy as a collection of unrelated childish gags, but I'm not sure adults or teens would agree with me.

There is no difference, it's just a matter of taste.

Of course he wasn't. 

Krypto fits fine.

Opinions don't have an effect on what WAS "Superman's World".  What WAS Superman's world was what was written...warts and all, in all eras.

The pendulum has swung back the other way, and we’re now living in the comics age of “everything that Kirby does is great.”

I actually thought we'd been living in that age since the late eighties or so, when The Comics Journal sort of took up Kirby's cause - ironically, about the same time they started knocking on Will Eisner. I'm not a big fan of Kirby's later work either, because let's face it, it was pretty lousy. I do like Kamandi, but I have to admit it's more for its kitsch value than anything else. Anyone who thinks Kirby could do no wrong might benefit from sitting down with the complete 13-issue run of Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers.

I really liked the first bunch of Kamandi stories but then it sorta went no where.

I never read Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers or Silver Star but I will be getting the trades from Image.

As an adult who used to be a teen, I agree with you completely.
