Cool I've entered!

And these Action Comics covers really are sublime, such bold solid drawings and colours.

I remember my dad got me a subscription for Superman around this time. And this was the first one to come in the mail and my mom freaked and cancelled the subscription. I was only young.

Hahaha, this is terrific. "Dead Again!" It's like the writers realize they don't have new ideas, while at the same time, it echoes what a comic-book reader would frustratingly say to themselves upon viewing the cover.

More like 50 days for me, I can't relate to this countdown...

To be honest, the extra waiting isn't the hard part, I've waited 7 years and can wait a few weeks more. But the notion that I can't be on this forum discussing it all from scratch and soaking up the initial chaos.

I guess it will be kinda interesting though, going backwards in the threads, seeing how the discussions has evolved.

Yeah. I'm with you. I hope everyone uses spoiler tags appropriately. I'd love to still read all the reaction, but I don't want to have it all the big moments revealed. Perhaps I should just avoid the hype for a few weeks... Not looking forward to June 14th at all... But I am excited for all the folks here who do get to see it then! ...............

Looks as if our boy Supes has been working out a bit too much in the Man Of Steel cover... Just sayin.

Hopeful, girl, I can't even begin to keep up with the speed of your avatar changes!
