    I tend to split superhero comics fans into "People who like Krypto" and "People who don't like Krypto."
    Basically, if you miss the wonder of a dog flying around in a little Superman cape, you're in the wrong hobby.

    Yeah, if it's comics everyone hates, Don Heck gets a pass as there are plenty of people who like his work, including my good self and most of those in the circles in which I move.

    If no-one's beaten me to it, please pull Kanigher's Wonder Woman run out of the fires of Hell. If I ever get around to reading 'The Dingbats of Danger Street' I may get back to you on that as well.

    I'd go so far as to say that you'll get consensus on absolutely nothing. I'd bet you a Kit-Kat that there is someone, somewhere, who likes Charlton's romance comics and Submarine Attack.

    Don't know the others you mention.
    I second the love for Don Heck. He was my definitive Avengers artist in my early days ( kooky Quartet). I rate him even with John Buscema, Jack Kirby and Neal Adams for Artistic Greatness concerning the Assemblers.

    Hey, i liked it! Especially the depressed Superman sitting in his jail cell, muttering "...doomsday..." I didn't see the book as a condemnation of creators who do work for hire, but a bemoaning of the sad fate that expects characters owned not by their creators, but by big corporations.

    Which is why this thread pretty quickly became indistinguishable from the "Comics You Hate" one.

    My appreciation has grown as I've gotten older and I find I like it more the more I see of it. One thing that helped was seeing some of Heck's illustration work outside the superhero genre - exactly what or where I can't recall right now - being very imprssed with it, and then being able to spot some of the same qualities in his Avengers.

    For me, it was his work as seen in western & romance reprints.

    Not that long ago someone here posted about coming into possession of (IIRC) a water-damaged pile of such & sitting down & reading a few, at which point he found out that they were pretty fun.

    Whoo!

    Those stakes are running a bit to high for me and my wallet!

    More of a Double-Bubble or Gummy Worm level wager myself.

    That would be me. I prefer DC and Marvel romance -- in that order -- but the Charlton ones can be just unhinged enough to be entertaining. They are certainly less formulaic than the romance titles from the Big Two.

    Back in the 90s, there was a Doom comic. No, not Dr. Doom. Doom the video game.

    Among other horrible lines:
    "You are huge. That means you have huge guts."
    "Rip and tear!!"
    "Now I'm radioactive. That can't be good."
