Hey, all you faithful Superman fans! - Look! Up in the sky!.... Is it a bird!?... Is it a plane!?.... Nope. It's.... Ah-Heck! You all know what comes next!

When it comes to (almost) everyone's favourite, American super-hero of all-time - This "Ultimate Guide to the Man of Steel" tells the anxious reader (through 100s of glossy, full-colour stills and very informative text) everything that they've ever wanted to know about Superman (in comic-book format), but just didn't know who to ask.

From showing how Superman's image has evolved over the years, to explaining more about life on planet Krypton, to tallying up Superman's few close friends, as well as naming his many enemies - This "Ultimate Guide" thoroughly covers the complete history of this Champion-of-all-Comic-Book-Heroes (starting from 1938, and right up to 2013).

When it comes to the medium of comic books - Whether you happen to be a die-hard Superman fan, or not - This impressive "ultimate guide" is certainly jam-packed with 100s of great stills, first-rate artwork, and loaded with surprising "comic-book" facts about "The-Man-of-Steel".

Yeah. Here's a book that's guaranteed to pique your total interest, page after glossy page.

Triumphantly making his comic-book debut way back in 1938 - Superman (and his endlessly enduring charisma) is (today) now 78 years old (and, yes, still going as strong as ever)..... Hey1.... Look! Up in the sky!....

Impressively compiled by Daniel Wallace - Believe me - This excellent volume is, without question, one of the very best covering its genre to come out in a long time.
