You know, I remember when these events were happening, but I don’t think I ever sat down to actually read them. I was too busy with Morrison’s Batman I guess.
It’s funny, I always forget that Geoff Johns was pretty much running the Superman line in addition to Green Lantern pre-crisis (and even Flash, towards the very end).
