    1st printing. By Mark Waid. This book looks at Superman - The Man of Steel - in all his glory, as he appeared during his first two decades. The covers of Action Comics offer a view of the history of Superman and his adventures. The "Golden Age" - from the first issue of 1938 until the mid-1950's - holds a special place in the hearts of Superman's legion of followers. Organized by theme and featuring nearly 200 early Superman Action covers, this volume traces the evolution of the most powerful hero American pop culture has ever produced. The covers range from from "Archenemies" to "Superman's Girlfriend", and from "Forces of Evil" to "Mild-Mannered Reporter", and more. The chapters present Superman in his many facets as crime fighter, wartime hero, role model, invincible visitor from another planet, and comic book icon. Hardcover, 9 1/2-in. x 12-in., 144 pages, text (with color illustration)
