Mann Vs. Superman!

Best Mann For The Job #22: This week's one-panel emergency-worker drama is *almost* a swipe of Action Comics #1 -- because when I wrote the script, I got out my battered old hardcover copy of Superman: From the 30's to the 70's (Bonanza Books)*, pointed to page 16 and told my wife, "Try to make it look like this."…

That's something, considering the scope of his comics career: The co-creator of Wolverine and Swamp Thing (among others), he served as writer and/or editor for several companies, on a multitude of comics -- including X-Men, Spider-Man,… Continue
