Superman: The Unauthorized Biography
Glen Weldon (Author)
A celebration of Superman's life and history - in time for his 75th birthday. How has the Big Blue Boy Scout stayed so popular for so long? How has he changed with the times, and what essential aspects of him have remained constant? This fascinating biography examines Superman as a cultural phenomenon through 75 years of action-packed adventures, from his early years as a social activist in circus tights to his growth into the internationally renowned demigod he is today.
Hardcover: 352 pages
Dan DiDio: We're going to see some of that reaction as we get deeper into the story, as it starts to unfold. Superman, come the new year, will be returning to a level of prominence in the DC Universe, following his adventures on New Krypton. And then you'll see some of the ramifications from that.
That's a good question, because you know what? We always want to show the connectiveness of the DC Universe, the continuity of the DC Universe, but we also want every story of each of the different comics to stand on their own. We could have other comics say, "Hey, where's Superman today? Where's Batman? Did you hear what happened to Wonder Woman?" But we only like to refer to those bits and pieces when they're really relevant to the stories that are taking place in those books and that we feel enhances the story of those. If there's a reason to mention why Superman is not there in, say, Green Arrow or Booster Gold, then we will. But it's not something that's just randomly thrown in, because each character is wrapped up in his own adventure at that particular time.
