Format: Hardcover
This is the second volume of the Superman Archives and it collects Superman #5-8. The stories are all by the original Super-team of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The cover art is reproduced from Superman #6 and it's still one of the most iconic take on the character.
We see a Superman just starting out in his crusade against crime. It's interesting to see that the police doesn't recognize him and shoots at him thinking him a dangerous vigilante. Superman generally goes against common crooks in those days and he's far less powerful then - although this volume shows us the first time he "float in the air" rather than merely "leaping great heights" - he still can't fly like we are used to yet.
This volume also reproduces all the original ads, prose stories and covers thus giving the reader an authentic Golden Age reading experience.

For the price, you cannot beat the DC Archive collections. These reprints are on high quality paper and the artwork is fantastically reproduced. It is obvious that DC placed quite a bit of time and effort into each and every book. You simply cannot find these comics elsewhere without spending much much more than you will for this single volume. I think that once you buy one of these, you will want them all.

Continuing from where Superman Archives Volume 1 left off, Volume 2 reprints Superman (first series) issues #5 thru #8 from the early 1940s. Again, I loved these Golden Age classics!!! These show why Superman became an instant hit with readers at the time. Very entertaining stories with action and suspense. Just pure gems to read!
Great writing and art by Superman's creators, Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster. They were visionaries of their time, creating one of the most well known fictional characters ever. Superman was and still is, the original super powered hero.

This is a great book, showcasing what made the man of steel as a popular icon. Superman's tough, take no prisoners approach to crime-fighting in the early days beats the grittiest Batman today. Great reading!

What a great way read these old classic comics. It's a lot cheaper than buying the originals. And the book doesn't fall apart reading them.
