The Man of Steel comes to the Library of American Comics! In partnership with DC Entertainment, the Eisner Award-winning imprint will produce deluxe archival editions of the Superman newspaper strip that ran from 1939-1966. The Dailies will be released in three sub-sets, starting with The Silver Age, then The Atomic Age, and finally, The Golden Age. (Sundays will be released in a separate, concurrent series.) These Silver Age classics have never been reprinted.
The first volume boasts art by Curt Swan and Wayne Boring and Stan Kaye, as Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel scripts stories by Otto Binder, Robert Bender, Jerry Coleman, and a new version of his own classic "Superman Returns to Krypton!" The book includes almost 800 strips, the complete episodes from December 15th, 1958 to July 1st, 1961. This is the series Superman fans have been waiting for! Written by Jerry Siegel and others, art by Curt Swan, Wayne Boring and Stan Kaye, featuring cover artwork by Pete Poplaski, edited and designed by Dean Mullaney, foreword by Tom DeHaven, with introduction by Sid Friedfertig.
