New Superman Homepage reviewer Mario Bennese has submitted his first review for the website, “100 Things Superman Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die” by Joseph McCabe.
100 Things Superman Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die
is unlike any Superman book I’ve ever read. SFX magazine editor Joseph McCabe is tasked with condensing nearly eighty years of Superman history, spanning both lore and popular culture, into a one-hundred chapter, 301 page book. For the most part, he is largely successful.Comprised of one-hundred easily digestible chapters, McCabe manages to break down the Superman legend into its core components. Beginning with the creators and the creation, the book proceeds to discuss the evolution of the mythology. Nearly every mainstay of the franchise is touched upon in some form or another.
Released at least a month prior to the premier of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the revamping of the DC Universe in DC Universe Rebirth #1, the book is relatively up-to date, including an entire chapter dedicated to 2015’s Supergirl TV show.
