I'm starting college again Monday, so will likely have less time to spend on Scans Daily. Therefore, now is the time to make an extra-large post.Given my own proclivities, I'm sure you're not surprised it's a Superman comic. To be precise, Action Comics #500.



We'll have a glorious 21 pages of a 64 page story, a time capsule of what Superman was like in 1979.

What with many of us getting misty-eyed over the loss of the Superman-Lois Lane marriage, I thought I'd present a story that many of you (especially the young'uns) might never have seen.

Back in the day, Superman was so popular that not only did he have two titles (three if you count Superboy) but his girlfriend Lois Lane and pal Jimmy Olsen had their own spotlight series as well. Eventually, however, sales on these ancillary titles dropped enough that DC decided to merge them along with some other characters into one big book entitled "Superman Family."

It kept the numbering of "Jimmy Olsen" , and eventually reached #200. As a celebration of this milestone, the magazine had an extra-long imaginary story, depicting the future marriage anniversary of Clark Kent and Lois Lane.



I've tried to stick as closely as possible to the 1/3rd rule, so extreme choppiness ahead.

In the far-distant future of 2000 AD, forty-year old women wear hot pants unironically. )

Next time, more public domain!

It's time for another Re-Week post (looking forward to seeing everyone else's!)

This time we look at Re-ign of the Supermen and the re-turn of...well, you'll see.



7 & 1/3 pages of 22.

It can't end this way! )

There have been a few references here and there about how "The Brave and the Bold" sounds like the name of a soap opera. And it seems it *was* a soap opera in the DCU, according to ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #497. Story by Jerry Ordway, art by Tom Grummett. Also, some bruiser named Doomsday is causing trouble.



This is back when Lois had dark red hair and Cat wasn't a hateful anti-Kryptonian bitch.

As it's a long weekend in the UK (well, chunks of it) and the US, I thought I'd repost an "activity post" from S_D 1.0

The results last time were... memorable to say the least, and I'm hoping for more here! :)

From the brighter, happier days of 1984 comes....

Since I noticed that unkwonscribbler posted some awesome pieces by Mr. Geers here a bit ago

I thought I'd share this cool Cir-El piece he did for me since I won a pageview contest he had.
