[Superman Fan Club] Presents: DC Challenge #6 / Challenge of the Superfans Season 3 Week 4

Welcome to Week 4 of Season 3 of a very special challenge / contest , reading **one single issue a week from the currently- digitized DC Universe Infinite collection of Silver and Bronze Age Superman and Family comic over an interesting space of time! (we had to read issues #1-3 in one week to keep up with each new issue being freshly-digitized).

As always, you can go back and read an issue and comment on it weeks after it is posted.

This time around: DC Challenge # 6, written at the very precipice of the Bronze Age before the Crisis rolled in the Modern Age officially at DC Comics . This is the Pre-Bryne Superman, the pre-Perez Wonder Woman.

Definitely one of the more unique Bronze Age writers this time around, known for his Superman stories.

  1. I was surprised, and even more surprised when they became an integral part of the story and not simply a cameo.
  2. In any other story, I wouldn’t have liked it as I’m not a fan of alternate histories. However, given how all-over the place this story is, I liked it. I’d say more, but I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t read it yet.

I really liked Jurgen’s art in this story. I’ve been a fan of his for a long time, but I really appreciate the Adams/Novick/Aparo influence I saw in his Batman.


The new posting for this will either be tonight or tomorrow.

Nyone have any other thoughts or want to join in on the fun?

  1. Yes, not a character I thought would be integral to a DC Comic.
  2. Not particularly, I prefer my historical characters to remain powerless, and interact with the SuperHero world as themselves, but some character was needed to show all the alternate versions of history.
