1st printing. By Joseph J. Darowski. Since Superman first appeared in Action Comics #1 in 1938, the superhero has changed with the times to remain a relevant icon of American popular culture. This collection explores the evolution of the Superman character and demonstrates how his alterations mirror historical changes in American society. These essays examine Superman's patriotic heroism during World War II, his increase in power in the early years of the Cold War, his death and resurrection at the end of the Cold War, and his recent dramatic reimagining. This volume reveals as much about America as it does about the champion of Truth, Justice, and the American Way. Softcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 246 pages, B&W. Cover price $40.00.
