Re: What was Mark Waid's issues with the 1986 retelling?
Well, the 50's and 60's were the least serious takes on Superman so in my opinion, those decades were not that interesting. ChaCha!
Basically what has happened in American comics is people have been trying to write their own versions of Dark Knight and Watchmen for the past 20 years.
The point that comics are at now is nothing compared to where they once were. And it'll never get back there either. - Kurosawa
