I may have twisted my arm while trying to pat myself on the back.

From the Superman: The Animated Series episode “The Late Mr. Kent” (originally aired November 1997) comes this bit of editorial commentary:

…”Fans Nix New Duds,” almost certainly referring to the new costume hoohar which began in the early 1997 Superman comics :

Oh, those Superman Cartoon guys. (For more on that costume, here’s a post on that topic that I did nearly a year ago which I still think isn’t half-bad.)

So long as I’m congratulating myself, I was reminded a few days ago of a particular entry on my site…an entry that, if I were to pick my top ten favorite posts I’ve ever done here, would almost certainly be near the top. So, today’s Progressive Ruin Phunnybook Phlashback: BEHOLD.

Hey. Hey, you. If you’ve got your blog set up that your sidebar links to other blogs include the title and / or the first line or two of said linked blogs, and you were good enough to include me in that sidebar, please do me a favor. Take a look at my link there. If the excerpt from my site reads “REMINDER! Update your Progressive Ruin feed links,” then…well, please update your Progressive Ruin feed links. Here’s the current feed, which is also linked to by the “SYNDICATE” button at the upper right hand corner of my site. Thank you!

    You promised a terrible post, you did not deliver.

    I still love that costume. Once Superman was done with it, I wish they’d given it to a better character than “Strange Visitor.”

    And yes, all my affection comes from Grant Morrison’s treatment of Electro-Supes in his JLA run.

    Is that Dwayne McDuffie in the photo there?
