Superman first landed on the planet Earth in 1938. An inveterate champion of the downtrodden and oppressed, his principles and virtues reflected the imaginations of his two teenage creators and the Depression-era world in which they lived. The Superman Masterpiece Edition is a spectacular tribute to the rise of the worlds first, greatest, and most-loved super hero. This ultra-deluxe package features an exclusive statue of Superman; an accurately sized, color reprint of the first issue of Supermans own comic book from 1939; and a lavishly illustrated, color hardcover book by best-selling author Les Daniels detailing Supermans Golden Age. This supremely collectible commemoration offers a nostalgic view of the '30s, '40s, and '50s, when the Man of Steel captured the worlds imagination.

Did you know that one of the comic book 'Superman' creator is Canadian !?! The book is full of information. This is an easy to read - and enjoyable -book of little know facts about the Man of Steel. Chip Kidd also wrote a more expanded book about Superman's friend 'The Batman.' Both are great reads!
