Superman vs. Hollywood SC (2008) comic books
1st printing. By Jake Rossen. Tinseltown's fascination with the comic icon is detailed in this book, encompassing all the behind-the-scenes machinations that helped shape Superman into a screen legend - and all the derailed projects that have vilified everyone involved. Based on extensive interviews with producers, screenwriters, cast members, and crew, this exposé spills the beans on all the various TV shows, from the classic The Adventures of Superman to the current hit Smallville; the various animated efforts on both the large and small screens; and the movies - from 1979's smash hit Superman: The Movie to 2006's Superman Returns. Softcover, 6-in. x 8 1/2-in., 340 pages, Text (with some B&W photos). Cover price $16.95.
