About Superman: The Atomic Age Sundays Volume 2 (1953-1956)
More than 170 never-before-reprinted Superman Sundays from the 1950s. This second book (of three) features every Superman weekly strip from March 22, 1953 through June 24, 1956. In these tales, Superman encounters two escaped criminals from Krypton; challenges Lois to discover his secret identity in three different periods in history; battles the mysterious Prankster; meets the legendary Hercules; mixes it up with the Phantom Thief, a crook whom radiation turns invisible; encounters a flying horse named Comet (no, not the one belonging to Supergirl!); and is super-confused when he suffers from super-amnesia!
Superman was created in 1938 by two ambitious Cleveland youngsters, Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel. Their defender of the oppressed became an enduring smash sensation in comics, radio, animation, television, and motion pictures. He remains the little guy’s White Knight, battling terrestrial and extra-terrestrial menaces and standing for Truth, Justice, and the American Way.
