I think Geoff Johns and Grant Morrison have been hitting it out of the park with their versions of Kal-El/Clark Kent. I can't wait to see what they do next.
I also loved the early 90's run with the triangles on the covers across the line for reading order.

I'm looking for good Silver Age stories...I know they're goofy. Single issues are fine, though if there are any decent trades with highlights of the era, that'd be awesome.
There's the Superman Showcase Presents series, Superman in the 50s, and Superman in the 60s. I don't know if the Chronicles have reached Silver Age era yet.
I've just recently got into Superman and have read Man of Steel and Birthright. Anyone have any suggestions on what to read next?
If you go to used bookstores, look for The Last Son of Krypton and Miracle Monday novels by Elliot S! Maggin. Written around the time of the first two movies, they are some of the best stories ever. Maggin was given free reign to explore his ideas, and they come off as epic. Completely in continuity to the Silver/Bronze Age as well.
Was New Krypton really that bad? I see it get uniformly negative reviews, but the hook of the event (everyone from Kandor set free, integrated into Earth) sounds amazing.
It's not as bad as people say, but idk how recommendable it is either. The World of New Krypton maxi was actually pretty good. but the other three books ended up being badly decompressed because they were basically waiting for these 12 issues to play out. Lot of editorial muck-ups, and they flush it all away in the worst way possible in the War of the Supermen mini to make room for JMS's run.
I was one of the few people who was on board for it, and was furious after War of the Supermen.
Also, what are your favorite / most highly recommended Superman stories? I almost completely agree with your opinions these days so I think I would probably like what you like.
