    I was just going to read the new story by Fraction and Lieber, but I ended up reading the whole thing. Lucky for me too, because the new story is one of the weaker elements of this anthology. I actually liked the two 70s reprint stories the most. They were fun, charming and nostalgic. Based on the small selection here, it seems as though modern comics tend to make Perry more serious and respectable as a newspaperman, and that creates a very different sort of tone for the character, and maybe impedes just what types of stories can be told with him. But that's literally based on just this collection, I have not read any Pre-Crisis Superman aside from the two stories here.
