    Default Superman at 75: Celebrating America's Most Enduring Hero

    Anyone going to this?

    January 27 at the Center for Jewish History in New York.

    I'm in Manhattan that week and should be attending.

    Isn't January several months too early?

    If they're planning on a year-long celebration (as it should be), then january is the month to start.

    I'm traveling to the US (and NY especifically)... But next month, so no, I will not be attending.
    ... The Master Of Puppets has spoken.

    Goodbye León (november 16th, 1993 - june 12th, 2009). You were, are and always will be the best friend I ever had. I will always love you and never forget you. And please, please forgive me.

    Thank you for teaching me about love, patience and caring. Rest in Peace, my friend. I hope that wherever it is you are now, you can run and play as much as you want.

    So I attended the talk – dragged my friend along and, thankfully, he didn’t fall asleep (borderline). The turnout was quite good, with a massive age-range (early teens through to 75) and the panel was an interesting one (Jenette Kahn (came across as a giggly schoolgirl at times (awesome! )) and Jim Shooter were my favourites).

    Larry Tye’s opening had some good moments and anecdotes and it turns out there were some descendants of the original publishers in the audience, too (setting the stage for a tense but quickly dismissed few minutes in the Q&A session afterwards).

    I didn’t stay for long after the talk was over – I’d taken up enough of my friend’s time as it was – but hopefully it ended well.

    (The whole 'what religion is Superman' was, frankly, lame and unnecessary (in the opinion of both myself and my non-comic-book-reading friend))

    Alas, I can't remember.

    Sorry.
