About this title


Originally published in 1942, The Adventures of Superman was the first full-length novel about the world's first and most endearing comic book super-hero. This facsimile is an exact reproduction of the original with the addition of a new introduction by bestselling Superman comic-book writer and novelist Roger Stern. Illustrations throughout, including 4 full-color plates.

From the Back Cover:

So much has changed in America since The Adventures of Superman was first published in 1942. Most readers will be delighted with the return of this long out-of-print book, a few will wonder why we just don't let it disappear. The Adventures of Superman is not only an enjoyable story of a great comic book super hero, but it is also a part of our American heritage and history. This book is a window on our past. For these reasons, Applewood Books is pleased to present The Adventures of Superman just as it was originally published, with no editorial changes except the addition of a new informative introduction by Roger Stern.
