Re: What was Mark Waid's issues with the 1986 retelling?
It seems that as I read the Byrne stuff story after story, I am even more a fan of Byrne's Superman. Byrne seems to have known who Superman is, at least for his own stories, and made the entirity of the mythos more interesting than it was in the 50s, 60's and 70's.

I don't buy new comics unless you count the independent publishers. The BIG 2 have let me down again and again!
