Thanks for an excellent article! always a reason to run back to the comic shop and relive some time with old favorite heroes, except now, under Ross and a handful of faithful fans who are also artists, they're even better.

Kasy's image as a superhero under Ross's artwork put a new dimension on classic characters. All of the fans of those icons are adults, too, and seeing an aging Superman is both a blessing upon the creation as well as a small thank you to us who have aged, but still idolize our 10¢ heroes.
