Wonderful 1940s vintage stories from Action Comics #48-65, Superman #16-24 and World’s Finest Comics #6-10. Includes those wonderful "wartime" covers with Superman battling Nazis, warplanes, submarines.... From the offices of the Daily Planet to the ends of the Earth, Superman faces such varied villains as the Prankster, Toyman, the Golden Age Metallo and the Puzzler. Work by Siegel and Shuster, plus their studio partners, such as the outstanding Jack Burnley. Foreword by legendary Superman editor Mike Carlin.

Here's Carlin: "The thing that's really cool about this era is that you get the first signs that the writers and artists knew just what they had on their hands...and how important this material was. Not just through the first moments of self-parody in comic books...in the "Case of the Funny Paper Crimes" (it is a good thing that Superman himself reads the funnies)...but through stories like "Superman: Matinee Idol" as well."

"Yup, the very first movie adaptation! Super self-referential, this story featured an adaptation of the first Max and Dave Fleischer Technicolor Superman cartoon. Not only that, but in the story, it made life hard for Clark Kent in the audience watching said cartoon with Lois Lane...weird, but fun...(They would have called this an "Imaginary Story" in the sixties...and we would call it an "Elseworlds" story now--simply because it just wasn't possible for Clark to watch his secret being played out on a movie screen for the world to see!)"

From the solitude of his private mountain retreat to the airless chill of outer space, no location is too remote to evade Superman’s celebrated mission to thwart evil wherever it may appear. These groundbreaking classic stories—which cemented Superman’s place as the medium’s most enduring hero—are gathered for the first time in this singular, expansive collection.
