Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Superman

On one tidy page.  Couple of errors there that I have alerted them to in the artists' names.

Not to mention the spelling error in Jonathan Kent's name.

I get the sense that there was no real editing job on that piece.

Not to mention: Earth-1 and Earth-2 were the early 60's, not the mid 50's, and Supergirl may have been shown on TV but it was not a TV movie.

These are minor, however, compared with leaving Curt Swan off the list of the top five Superman artists. That's just wrong on every possible level.

Still - interesting page.

Yeah, Supergirl was released in theatres at Thanksgiving '84. They even got Shuster's name wrong.

David Morefield said...

Swan made the top 5, they just list him as "Glenn Swan." Which is cool because he belongs right up there with "Joel Shuster."

Of course this begs the question, what happened to Wayne Boorman, Rose Byrne and Neil Addams, but you can't fit in everyone. Although with effort, you can misspell them all.

That would be John Byrne and Neal Adams. To my knowledge Byrne is male.

David Morefield said...

Uh, yeah, I was attempting humor, there. I got Wayne Boring's name wrong, too.

If Byrne was a woman, then his writing of female characters would be even more disturbing than it already is.

And as long as the joke's a bust, let the record show I'd never put Byrne in the Top 5, anyway.
