true, there's not, but that's not what i'm arguing either. Cadmus was a long story arc; SSM is a lot of individual episodes. they just happen to also include running subplots, something none of the Timm stuff really did. plus they mix humor as well. ask anybody, writing good comedy's harder than writing anything else.
i'm not arguing that SSM is better than all of Timm's stuff, and i'm certainly not arguing that the Timm-DCu is bad or lacking in any way. you'll be HARD-pressed to find a bigger fan of BTAS, STAS, and the whole run of JL than me. all i'm saying is that from astorytelling standpoint, from a craft standpoint, SSM is just as exceptional.
and i'll give you that the character animation is better in the Timm-verse, but the action scenes in SM? wowzers. that's some great stuff.
