Stuff of Interest - May 2006 - Showcase Presents Superman v2

Written by Jerry Siegel, Jerry Coleman, Bill Finger and Otto Binder

Cover by Swan & George Klein
The second Showcase spotlighting the Silver Age exploits of Superman features ACTION COMICS #258-275 and SUPERMAN #134-145! The Man of Steel faces off against a wide array of threats, from the impish Mr. Mxyzptlk to the deadly alien Brainiac to the utterly incomprehensible Bizarro.
576 pg, B&W, $16.99 US MAR060299

I love that cover. What a great choice for this volume, much better than the one they picked for the first volume. I've getting close to done with that first volume, hopefully finishing just before the SUPERMAN FAMILY volume reprinting the early JIMMY OLSEN series comes out, which should last me until this one. This one should be a lot of fun, with a fair number of Jerry Siegel stories that are always entertaining and more Curt Swan art than the first volume (though SUPERMAN FAMILY will have the big Swan motherlode, with over 500 pages of 1950s Swan pencils). And of course me am always hating some Bizarro.
