Review:

From the doomed planet Krypton to Smallville, Kansas, to the great (but often troubled) city of Metropolis, a powerful superhero has fought for truth, justice, and the American way for over 70 years. In this breathtaking tribute to the man of steel himself, all the nitty-gritty, fascinating details of Superman's life and career are investigated, analyzed, and celebrated. Discover just what happened back on Krypton to propel infant "Kal-El" to Earth as the one Kryptonian hope for rebirth of their civilization. Learn how a loving farm family named Kent adopted the baby, renamed him Clark, and instilled him with solid American values. And meet the many, many friends and enemies of our hero, including, fiercely independent but lovable Lois Lane, the nasty Joker, and Doomsday, the unstoppable creature that killed Superman.

Allowed unlimited access to the archives of DC Comics, author Scott Beatty delved deep, coming up with the kind of details fans will fall all over themselves to peruse, including each featured character's vital statistics and year of appearance on the Superman scene. The large book format, compelling, readable text, and many crystal-clear illustrations in The Ultimate Guide are in keeping with Dorling Kindersley's signature style. A true treasure for superhero buffs! (All ages) --Emilie Coulter
