Omg I loved this comic! I would give up a kidney to be a fly on whoever’s wall it was that came up with that song because I have a sneaking suspicion they had a jingle to go with it and I need that as my life’s theme song!

I also found the commentary on exploiting Superman’s image to be :superman:uper meta since it’s literally the reality for the character then and now! I hear you Supes! *sips tea from :superman:uper mug… loud and clear my man :+1:


But who’s got you! :heart_eyes:


That’s right kids! Elevators used to operate on a lever an you had to hold it until you lined the car up with the floor! In fact this was a job until the machines took over! *shakes fist

That panel with Lois being caught by Superman really is very well drawn and colored.

I kind of like her outfit too with the white and red.

Panel of the day for Superman…hmmmmm
