Description

A comprehensive series that remedies a gap in comics history, bringing back all the Superman daily strips--among the character's rarest collectibles, never before reprinted. The creative torch is passed to writer Alvin Schwartz when Superman's creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster leave the series. Schwartz and artist Wayne Boring present sixteen storylines that begin while World War II is still raging and continued into the post-war era. Stories include The Prankster's Peculiar Premonitions, Lois Lane, Editor, and Superman's Secret Revealed!
