Superman: From the Thirties to the Seventies

 
9780600380467: Superman: From the Thirties to the Seventies

For all those who have thrilled to the heroic exploits of Superman, the comic strip's noblest hero, here, for the first time, is a collection of his most exciting adventures.

Twenty-eight full stories with 36 pages of color follow Superman from his origins in 'Atomic Comics' in 1938 to the 70s. Here are many of the most famous Superman firsts - the dramatic appearance of Red Kryptonite, Lois Lane's suspicions that bespectacled, self-effacing Clark Kent is Superman, and the girl in Superman's past, Lori the beautiful mermaid from the fabulous lost city of Atlantis, for whose love Superman was ready to forsake his career.

Here is the ultimate escape into a fantasy world in which Superman's transcendent goodness and superhuman strength do battle with the evil machinations of power-crazed criminals.

With an introduction by E. Nelson Bridwell, editor of 'National Periodical Comics,' a wealth of magnificent artwork and a bibliography listing all Superman's comic-book appearances, this book is a must for all comic addicts and everyone interested in this unique view of the American Way of Life.
