    January 1, Michael The Showcase presents Superman book were actually mostly passable, sometimes even decent. Being that it is from the 60's, there a few continuity glitches Matter-Eater Lad is repeatedly called "Matter-Eating Lad" in the last story, by of all people Braniac 5! January 1, Bradley The most accident-prone superheroes in the galaxy. Maybe I am blinded by my love for the team-up concept. These stories--now approaching half a century old -- are reprinted in crisp detail, capturing the simplicity and fun of the original artwork. The rest of the book uses a si Ah, more wacky silver-age goodness from the 60's.

    Thus, it was the most logical starting point since it offered us a chance Showcase presents Superman book explore a variety of characters and approaches. Ultra Boy is introduced as having Ultra-vision. Though Showcase Presents Traveling with Lana and her archaeologist father, Clark falls into a sand whirlpool in the desert, which sends him back in time into an alternate reality, where the Biblical Goliath and the Greek Hercules legends are the same person. Instead of villains that are a physical match for him, Superman was given an intellectual heavy weight Lex Luthor and a radioactive element from his homeworld. The Legion's Constitution can be annoying.

    Things I noted: the Showcase presents Superman book Trapper is never really introduced. These stories--now approaching half a century old -- are reprinted in crisp detail, capturing the simplicity and fun of the original artwork. Then, on screen, [they clean] up scratches or blotches, correcting some punctuation and the usual work required to ready older stories for new readers. A more important story is Superboy's meeting with Mon-El who would become a powerful legionnaire. I guess in the future people get super powers from being total klutzes. There was only one story that didn't really make any sense within its context and it was the one in which Lightning Lad was believed to have returned as the Legion came upon him returning to life in his Lenin display case.

Contents Overview Name The name " Showcase " comes from a — DC anthology series often used to try out new characters.

Kennedy, two months after his assassination, disguising himself as Clark Kent to protect Superman's identity. Focus and other collections The Showcase Presents line is designed primarily Showcase presents Superman book focus on the Silver Age DC Showcase presents Superman book, specifically — according to then-collected editions editor Bob Greenberger — "the rich era from the mids through the early s," which is widely regarded as "one of DC's most fertile and creative periods.

The story had interesting concepts and dealt with the death of a hero early on with the passing of Lightning Lad who died to save Saturn Girl. Why should these stories be Showcased? January 1, Tone I love it but it's hard to recommend this volume to others.

There is hope! Swanny does this hyper-realistic face thing that is boring, partly because it's kind of ugly, but also because who wants a guy who flies through space and has a super dog with realistic faces?

They even attributed ridiculous powers like super-ventriloquism to the Man of Steel whenever their stories called for them. In some cases, the amount of contractually obligated reprint fees makes the budget for a proposed collection unprofitable.

Great stories from back when Superman could fly to other planets, make diamonds by squeezing a piece of coal and had nothing better to do then mess with Lois Lane when she started to get uppity. These range from so-so to fascinating. Of course, he'd be back, the book was pretty honest about that too.

Otherwise, it's runaway trains, kittens in trees and other acts of god that give him trouble.

SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SUPERMAN FAMILY VOL. 4

Illustrator Chris Sprouse left the project due to the media attention and some comic book stores announced a boycott. Lots of Showcase presents Superman book White and Superman staging incredibly and ludicrously elaborate schemes to capture crime bosses or those nefarious fifth columnists.

However, as Greenberger goes on to note, although this procluded some volumes from being produced under such contractually-stipulated guidelines, since not reprinting issues necessarily results in no reprint fee or royalty payments, in most cases DC will be able to negotiate with "the talent involved to waive the reprint fee in lieu of the standard royalty arrangement," since "[i]f the parties agree, then everyone benefits.

The title was also used to reintroduce characters in the Action Comics Weekly series in They were affordable and fun, allowing readers a chance to see not just milestone issues like Amazing Fantasy 15 or Fantastic Four 1, but later issues that were simply part of a series' run.

Simply put, Superman is pretty interesting guy and complaining about quality of villains is like whining about the quality Showcase presents Superman book opponents the Harlem Globetrotters play. For the period in between, the vouchers Showcase presents Superman book were in use called for a set reprint fee to be paid.

Without resolving the quests or his conflict with the king, Superman abandons G-H, saves a kid from a lightning bolt and is thrown back to his own time, where he thinks, guess I'll put on my Clark clothes and pretend I climbed out of the sand whirlpool. The premise: things that are outside the already insane continuity of Superman, theoretical adventures like "Superman has kids, and 30 pages later and it's really convoluted.

These books are awesome, and I stand by my opinion! This storyline told of Clark Kent attempting to protect Metropolis without his powers until eventually regaining them.

The most jarring of these, though, was how often the "distant future" changed from the truly distant 30th Century to the sorta distant 21st Century.
