IDW continues its series of comic strip reprints with Superman, The Golden Age Newspaper Dailies, 1947-1949.

With this collection, illustrated by Wayne Boring and Win Mortimer, from Canada, Superman has encounters with Lois Lane, the Ogies, deals with nuclear power(!!), juvenile delinquents, molls, dolls, and spies.

It’s a bit more lighthearted than the Superman of today, of course; no demigods, or dark dark days of Krypton.

Delightfully written by Alvin Schwartz and DC Managing Editor Jack Schiff.

Long and detailed Introduction by Sidney Friedfertig, with lots of very interesting analysis of the times, the creators and the reading tastes of the American public.

IDW, Superman The Golden Age Newspaper Dailies, Hardcover $49.99 for 258 pages, All ages

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right.
