Superman and DC celebrate the anniversary of an American cultural touchstone moment with this original graphic novel anthology. Features a previously unpublished Golden Age Superman epic! Revisit classic stories from across the decades featuring the debuts of not just the Man of Tomorrow, but also Supergirl, Brainiac, the Fortress of Solitude and so much more! See the work of generations of top writers and artists on the original super hero! Enjoy sparkling essays from literary wizards who have won Pulitzer Prizes and hit the New York Times bestseller lists, including Jules Feiffer, who relives his memories of when Action Comics #1 first hit newsstands.

Plus, a historical essay by guest editor Paul Levitz, and hundreds of vintage covers! As a bonus, don't miss a previously unpublished 1940s Superman tale believed to be by writer Jerry Siegel with art by the Joe Shuster studio, salvaged from the DC Comics files fifty years ago by Marv Wolfman (and accompanied by an essay, "How I Saved Superman") and hidden away until now.

The aforementioned writers introduce each decade and discuss Superman's world for the period, then we are treated to "best-of" stories from each era.

We're quite surprised at the price on this. It was previously announced in the $30+ range with a poster, but appears here sans poster and at a new lower price $10 to $20 less than comparable hardcovers. I guess DC is very proud and wants to share it with as many readers as possible!
