Superman Ultimate Guide to The Man of Steel book review

Superman: The Ultimate Guide to the Man of Steel
by Daniel Wallace
DK, 2013
200 pages

The most enduring figure in American mythology has been, without a doubt, Superman. Regardless of the quality of the past few theatrical releases telling the Man of Steel’s story, his legacy is firmly entrenched through his comic book appearances. Author Daniel Wallace takes readers on a journey that begins with the superhero’s first appearance in Action Comics in 1938 on through the more recent adventures in DC’s The New 52 series. Superman’s friends and foes are spotlighted, as well as his collaborations with other heroes and his human friends.

Wallace does not bore the reader with details from every comic book published, but highlights the most important in Superman’s 75-year history, filling in the blanks between those issues with other key events that made him who he is today. Superman: The Ultimate Guide to the Man of Steel is a must-have volume for fans of the hero who is able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

  1. I’m not really a comic fan as such, but Daniel Wallace however…my first introduction to the author has been his latest book ‘The Kings and Queens of Roam’, and not ‘Big Fish’ (I saw the movie but that doesn’t count). Listening to him talking on the Book report radio show about how he battled for 14 years and numerous rejections before ‘Big Fish’ got published makes me appreciate him more. Especially if he can still take on projects such as this Superman guide. I would love to be introduced to SM by Wallace.
