Thursday Night Thinking #172

Once again... Thursday Night Thinking!

Now here's the thing: the more I see of these old Silver Age Superman covers the more I want to read them. For those of you who have experienced this era: is it all as senses shatteringly awesome as it appears? Or am I better off with my idyllic imaginings?

What I want to know is WHO won the Giant 5000 Prize Contest.

Silver Age covers were completely insane! Somehow, the inside of the book never quite matched up to the outside in potential. I remember one where Lois was turned into a centaur, and Superman said it was permanent...but it wasn't. IT WASN'T!

Scandalous!

Well, "awesome" isn't exactly how I'd describe.

I think "effortlessly yet staggeringly bizarre" would be more accurate.
