Super Sloucher

"Super Sloucher" from Superboy vol.3 #12 (DC, 1995) by Karl Kesel, Tom Grummett and Doug Hazlewood
Though visually a 90s fad nightmare, I really loved the post-Reign of the Supermen Superboy title, with Superboy in Hawaii fighting the likes of the Scavenger and King Shark, and kissing the likes of Knockout. Well, the costume design was 90s excess, but the art itself was good clean fun from Tom Grummett (most issues) and Karl Kesel really knows how to do fun superhero comics (he even brought me back to Marvel with his Daredevil, after a total ban that lasted several years). I didn't follow the book for long after this team left (the second time, Ron Marz filled in between 31 and 49), but it lasted 100 issues! (More when you count the 0 and million issues.) Remember when series numbering was allowed to go that high?
