Subj: How Well Do The John Byrne Books Hold Up Today? I Didn't Find Them To Be Too Great.

I read quite a few of them a few years ago (I still want/need to get the Supergirl arc, and the issue where Superman kills those Phantom Zone criminals.), and one or two issues recently, and they really don't seem like anything classic or special. I was kind of disappointed. It might just be me, because I find Byrne's writing to be a little bit- clunky. Too much exposition (And explaining.), and his dialogue is definitely not the best. I'm sure that they were a big deal back in the day. What do you guys think? Are there any classics that you can recommend (Other than the two classic Luthor stories in Superman that he did.)? Thanks.
