Superman: The Golden Age Vol. 1 [Paperback]
by Jerry Siegel (Author), Joe Shuster (Illustrator)
Historic first appearances from Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster’s legendary Man of Steel! Faster than a speeding bullet, Superman burst onto the comic book scene in 1938, just as America was on the terrifying precipice of a world war. In a desperate time, legendary creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster brought to life the world’s first modern superhero. The Man of Steel emerged as a champion of the oppressed, taking down any enemy with his super-strength and speed, both foreign and near to home. In his distinctive royal blue, red and yellow costume, complete with cape, the stalwart Kryptonian emanated strength and fearlessness. He swiftly became a symbol of hope for a downtrodden America.

Superman: The Golden Age Vol. 2 [Paperback]
by Various (Author)
In the early 1940s, Superman was a much-needed hero for a nation on the brink of war. The Man of Steel (and his comic book medium) were in their Golden Age, and with each new story, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster were continuing to expand and enrich the world of their still relatively new creation. This volume includes the first appearances of such classic figures as Daily Planet editor Perry White and Superman’s archenemy, Lex Luthor. It is also in these timeless tales that the Man of Tomorrow first takes flight, no longer just leaping tall buildings in a single bound, but soaring over them!

Superman: The Golden Age Omnibus Vol. 5 [Hardcover]
by Various (Author)
Following the Allies’ victory in World War II, America was on the move again by the end of 1945. With the return of millions of servicemen from Europe and the Pacific and the lifting of wartime rationing, new suburban housing began springing up across the country, and the great postwar baby boom was soon underway. On the newsstands, the adventures of Superman reflected the nation’s changing priorities. While he certainly didn’t abandon his championship of the common man (not to mention his never-ending battle for truth and justice), the world’s greatest superhero took a noticeably comedic turn in the final years of comics’ Golden Age. Now, this pivotal period in the Man of Steel’s celebrated career – featuring such stories as “The Average American,” “Battle of the Redwoods” and “The Laughing Stock of Metropolis” and co-starring such legendary luminaries as Lois Lane, Mr. Mxyztplk, the Prankster and Lex Luthor – is finally available for the first time in a single hardcover edition.

Superman in the Forties
by Jerry Siegel
The forties. A time for change. The Depression still gripped America as the decade began. But hope was offered to the masses by a new breed of hero. The man could withstand bullets, leap over tall buildings and bend steel in his bare hands. Fighting for the oppressed, this man of steel captured the imaginations of young and old alike. This volume traces the roots of the world’s fascination with Superman from his debut in Action Comics #1 through the decade, as his powers developed and his place in society changed. You will meet his friends Lois Lane and Perry Whit, plus his earliest foes – the Ultra-Humanite, J. Wilbur Wolfingham and the Toyman among others. Written and drawn by a team of talents led by creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, this book features work by Bill Finger, William Woolfolk, Dom Cameron, Wayne Boring, Al Plastino and several others who helped shape the Man of Tomorrow.

Moore teams with Curt Swan, the definitive Superman artist from the 1950’s through the 1970’s, to tell the final adventure of the Man of Steel featuring his last stand against Lex Luthor, Brainiac and his other foes in “WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE MAN OF TOMORROW?”. This volume also includes Moore’s classic early collaboration with WATCHMEN illustrator Dave Gibbons, “FOR THE MAN WHO HAS EVERYTHING”, in which Batman, Robin and Wonder Woman find Superman held captive by the villain Mongul in the Fortress of Solitude and dreaming of an idyllic life on Krypton courtesy of a wish-fulfilling parasitic plant known as the Black Mercy. Both tales are considered two of the top five all-time best Superman stories among fans. The rare first team-up adventure between the Man of Tomorrow and Swamp Thing, the character that first brought Moore to notoriety in the United States, is included as an additional bonus.

Batman & Superman in World’s Finest: The Silver Age Omnibus Vol. 1 [Hardcover]
by Various (Author)
Witness Batman and Superman’s first encounter! Gathered for the first time in this singular, expansive collection: the classic stories that cemented their legacy as the medium’s finest team-up. They had been fighting crime separately for years, but it wasn’t until the historic SUPERMAN #76 in 1952 that Superman, the Man of Steel, finally teamed up with Batman himself. That story proved so popular that the two quickly became the main feature in WORLD’S FINEST COMICS – and the greatest friendship in comics was born. Their adventures together would feature heroes and villains such as Robin, Batwoman, Lex Luthor, Bat-Mite, Mr. Mxyzptlk, and more alien threats than might seem possible.
Collects the classic story of their first meeting from SUPERMAN #76 and their super team-ups from WORLD’S FINEST #71-116. Also includes a foreword from veteran comics writer Mark Waid and an afterword by comics historian Jim Amash.
