First I'd like to say I think you're doing a great job with this site. I see a lot of request for stories, but I was wondering and I'm sure other new members are too, what does it take to get these stories online like this.

Hey, Just a fan - welcome and that's a good question.

If I really like a story, and own it, then I'll scan it in and add it to the site.

If I really really like a story, I'll buy it and then scan it in and add it the the site.

Sometimes other people in the forum will scan a story and send it to me.   This has happened a couple of times.  If you see a "contributed by" credit on the bottom of a story page, then it was scanned and sent in.  Otherwise I put the story up myself.

But I've pretty much exhausted all the good stuff from my own collection and I can't keep spending money on any more Silver Age back issues.  This is a hobby that's already costing me more money than it should.

So, how to get a story online?

Either scan it and send me the pages; ask someone else to do so; donate money to the site so I can buy the comic and scan it myself; or send me the comic and I'll scan it. :-)

S!

Here's another factor I forgot - If I really dislike a story or think it's not appropriate, I won't add it.  One guy wrote to me asking if I planned to put up the "Death and Return" of Superman storyline.  I told him not any time soon...

How about a scan of the Superman-Batman story "The Cape and Cowl Crooks" from World's Finest Comics #159, where we meet Anti-Superman and Anti-Batman. Just say the word and I'll send you the scans.

Any interest in parts 1 and 2 of "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow"?

If so, I'll scan them and send them to you.
