Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

"Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound." Superman's super-abilities have now occupied would-be heroes for a full seventy-five years. (He premiered in April 1938.) Thus, this DK ultimate guide to the Man of Steel arrives at an optimal time. And ultimate it is: Everything from his birth in faraway Krypton to his double life as a Daily Planet reporter are covered in this colorfully illustrated, oversized 200 page hardcover.
