I still remember the Superman:TAS where they killed off Turpin and did a black screen Kirby tribute. You knew right then and there Bruce Timm and Company got it. I kinda glad he didn't live to see Final Crisis, but I am sure JLU would have made him smile.

I wonder how he would have felt about the Fantastic Four movie? I'm torn on whether he would appreciate seeing it in some form on the big screen (and hopefully getting some scratch outta the deal), or being horrified at how much was changed from what he and Stan came up with (or what Jack had come up with if you listen to a lot of the staunch Kirby-philes).

This has been one of the slower weeks in comics for a while. I gave DC the icon, based on the quality of: BLACKEST NIGHT: SUPERMAN #1: Ok, I'll admit, I didn't expect much out of the tie-ins. This turned out to be a fairly good horror story.
