Re: The Glasses Problem
And I'm sure the army General got a good look at him when he talked to Superman through the glass mirror, also the army girl saying he looks "kind of hot" clearly now has in her mind what Superman looks like so if she happens to bump into Clark she'll recognize a "hot guy" right away.
my head is hurting now.
Self-contained stories part of a larger story is where its at. Not this writing for the trade nonsense. If you're going to write for the trade, don't release it in individual issues. Just release the trade.
