The world's most popular and enduring superhero comes together with the talents of acclaimed novelist Tom De Haven to recreate the early years of the Man of Steel. Opening with the young Clark Kent on a date, the novel takes an entirely fresh approach to the emergence of his superpowers and the start of his newspaper career, following him from rural 1930s Kansas across America to Hollywood in its golden age and then to New York City. He meets a worldly Lois Lane and conniving political boss Lex Luthor and begins his battles against criminal masterminds, mad scientists, and supervillains inspired by fascists. This fun and fast paced novel of thrilling invention, heroic escapes, ill fitting costumes, and supersized, coming-of-age angst is sure to appeal to devoted fans.

It's Superman all right, but not one most fans have ever seen. Tom De Haven's realistic story explores how a nervous Superboy becomes a confident Superman in a very adult story. Scott Brick lays out a good yarn that begins in 1935 and ends in 1938, when Superman goes public. Brick's trademark delivery, with sentences ending in upturned final syllables, works well in this story of a fumbling Clark Kent learning to shed his Smallville skin. Superman purists may object to Clark's smoking and drinking, and to his leaving Pa Kent alone on the farm while he takes up wandering the country like Woody Guthrie. Likewise, Lois Lane is surprisingly slutty, and Lex Luthor is almost unrecognizable as a Manhattan alderman. M.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
