Description

Superman's newspaper comic strips are among the rarest of all Superman collectibles. This comprehensive series helps remedy that gap in the Superman by bringing back into print every one of the Sunday newspaper strips. The Man of Steel stars in thirteen classic adventures as the 1950s "Atomic Age" comes to a close. Some of the stories are original to the newspaper strip, while others were alternate versions of tales that were simultaneously published in the regular comic books. One of the featured adaptations is "Superman Versus the Futuremen," written by Batman co-creator Bill Finger, which retells Superman's origin. This concluding volume of Superman's Atomic Age Sundays reprints all strips July 1, 1956 to October 11, 1959

"A virtually flawless presentation...a large, mostly forgotten chunk of Superman in his glory days, when the concept was fresh and the energy was pure." --The Comics Journal
