Also speaking of GL/GA,its funny how often the series gets dragged out in recent times to prove that "comics were always political". Yeah,thats not really the same as what we are getting today.

Well, there's a school of thought that says 'everything is political,' and in a sense, it's true, insofar as everything that we create is a reflection of or a comment on the culture that it springs from, but there is a marked difference between works that are self-consciously political and those that aren't.

There's also a marked difference between editorial mandated political stances and those taken by creators, for what it's worth.

On a different note, let's start a new month of classic comics!

Oksner was a wonderful artist who did a lot of humor titles for DC, like Bob Hope, Jerry Lewis, and a bunch of other similar licensed characters, as well as Angel and the Ape. In later years he did Superman.

@Bento Not quite what Im saying.Even if its hamfisted as it is,we could all agree that drugs are bad.IMO its impossible to compare that to the whinefest of entitled wankers that is todays Marvel.Nuances,I guess.
Later on there will be another set of backups,Superman The Secret Years,that dealt with Clarks journey from Superboy to Superman.Great stuff,actually.

Howdy guys! I've posted a few different Bronze Age entries in the last few months.  Sorry I haven't kept up the releases here, but it's been a busy time.  I have some particularly interesting comics today!

The Sand Thing saga did end rather abruptly. I wonder if the powers that were told O'Neil he had X number of issues to make the changes... I think it could have used a few more pages anyway. The "Kryptonite No More" aspects hung around for awhile, the other changes kind of just got forgotten as I remember.
