Yeah, yeah, we already know: Superman is a dick

The "Superman Is A Dick" craze has hit the mainstream press, as the Winston-Salem (N.C.) Journal talks with Mike Miksch about collecting the covers that reveal the Man of Steel's more prickish nature:

"It started when I saw some Lois Lane comics. I started poking through the whole series and made the 'Superman is such a (jerk)' crack in response to two covers, and it sort of just took on a life of its own."

The article also points to I-Mockery, which devotes space to the wackier covers from Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen and Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane, and to the far less quirky Golden Age Batman and Suffering Sappho, It's Wonder Woman!
