- Full Description
Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel returned to DC and became writer, once again, of the newspaper comic strip along with DC's other top writers. In these eighteen classic adventures from October 18, 1959 to January 20, 1963, the Man of Steel meets "The Kryptonite Girl" and his "Mermaid Sweetheart." Also featured are Superman's "Greatest Feats," "The Super Powers of Perry White," "The Invasion of the Super-Ants," and "The Creature of 1,000 Disguises," among other early '60s tales drawn by Wayne Boring. And "Superman Joins the Army," a theme DC refused to touch on during World War II. Find out why, here.
From the introduction by renowned creator Mark Waid with John Wells:"At the same time the Superman newspaper strip was running coast-to-coast, Superman (as an adult, or as his teenage self, Superboy) was appearing regularly in seven different comic book series, generating so many adventures that DC editor Mort Weisinger saw no reason to invent new ones for the dailies-and-Sundays audience...Weisinger would grab a recent Superman comic book (or, likely, an actual original script) and have it recycled for artist Wayne Boring..." And so Mark goes on to source every single story in this volume back the comic it first appeared in, with notes about changes and additions and differences--while Wayne Boring was interpreting material originally drawn by artists from Kurt Schaffenberger to Curt Swan. His comments are often great fun, but too numerous to detail here.
A comprehensive series that remedies a gap in comics history, bringing back all the Superman Sunday strips--among the character's rarest collectibles, never before reprinted.The next volume will finish this fascinating run of Silver Age Sunday Pages. Wonderful period-style cover by Pete Poplaski, who has done the covers for this entire series of newspaper reprints.
