Erik is really doing some incredible work on this book. If you are a ghost head, you owe it to yourself to read it. Even if you are not, the writing is sharp and witty and something any CB lover can appreciate. Plus the artwork!

Loved that movie. Not much to add on what has already been said, but I would agree that it is an acquired taste. Still wish they had the chance to do an SR sequel and up the ante a little.

Ha, to think one day we will look back on these MoS debates and laughs. Or not.

@danhimself: Just finished season 1 and overall not too bad. Friend of mine says the show gets better before its gets worse again.

I still think I will watch through the seasons before picking up the book. I am a self-professed Superman fan, so I guess I should at least watch Smallville right? :-)

Just started rewatching Smallville just so I can read this. I never really got into the show back in the day (saw most of season 1 and hated the freak of the week thing). Little over halfway through season 1 and all the kryptonite is getting old. I remember the Chris Reeve eps being good, so I am looking forward to that.

I checked out one of the trades for Smallville not to long ago and the art was not the greatest.

They're all good though, IMO. "

Good list

Just watched the Superman: The Animated Series episode titled "Unity". The whole alien spore/hivemind thing taking over Smallville reminded me of a couple of Byrne era stories, specifically the Manhunters in Adventures of Superman 88 and Action 596 (part of the Millennium series) and issue titled the Union in Adventures of Superman Annual #1, though the latter definitely seems the most similar. Anyway, I went back and reread AoS Annual #1, and talk about a pretty dark issue! I do not remember that one, course its been many years since I read it. Without spiling too much, Hfuhruhurr is the villian and essentially wipes out an entire town, essentially leaving Supes helpless. The STAS episode is much more upbeat and throws in Kara for good measure.

Anyone know of any similar Supes stories? Apparently the villian Hfuhruhurr appears during the Exile storyline, but I can't seem to find that issue in my collection. I guess I am off to my LCS!

Thank you G-Man. I wholeheartedly agree.
