Since WAR OF THE SUPERMEN #4 (of 4) is published this week, this episode I will share my thoughts about the whole NEW KRYPTON storyline, which has involved the Superman family of titles for a little over a year. I give a brief review of some of the plot lines, my likes and dislikes about the whole storyline, and the collected editions available and forthcoming for this story. Check the DC Comics website or the Collected Comics Library podcast and blog at: http://collectedcomicslibrary.com.

Win Mortimer was born on May 1, 1919 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. He died on January 11, 1998. He was survived by his wife Eileen, three children, two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. He was a prolific comic book artist who drew many stories and covers, mostly for DC Comics, throughout his adult life. While he is not very famous, Win Mortimer drew many Superman covers and stories, mostly in the 1940’s and 1950’s.
