updated 06/22/2008
 When I started this website I never dreamed someday we'd be looking back with fond nostalgia on the Superman era of the Ninties. But here we are. And here are most of the most important artists to work on the four(!) monthly Superman titles that gave us a weekly continuing story throughout most of those years.
