I love Jose Garcia Lopez's Superman.
jcoletta
This collection also highlights the importance of inkers in the comic book medium, with some being better suited for Garcia-Lopez's pencils than others.

My personal favorite is the Wonder Woman story where she and Superman get into an ideological argument as well as a physical fight.

Format: Hardcover
Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez may not have the same name recognition of other veteran comic book artists, but his art work is easily among the most widely seen in the world. Since 1982, Garcia-Lopez has been DC's premier licensing artist, drawing practically every character in the DC Universe for use on all sorts of merchandise. Garcia-Lopez emigrated from Argentina in 1974 and was quickly hired by DC Comics, where he would go onto pencil various titles including Batman, The New Teen Titans, Atari Force, Batman Vs. The Incredible Hulk, and much more. But it was perhaps his depiction of Superman that brought Garcia-Lopez the greatest notoriety. Garcia-Lopez's Superman merged the realism of Neal Adams with the romanticism of Curt Swan, while also bearing a resemblance to Christopher Reeve. This hardcover collects Garcia-Lopez's pivotal Superman works from 1975 to 1981. The stories reprinted are SUPERMAN #294, 301, 302, 307-309, 347; DC COMICS PRESENTS #1-4, 17, 20, 24, 31; and ALL-NEW COLLECTOR'S EDITION C-54: SUPERMAN VS WONDER WOMAN.

Included in this collection are many classic team-ups featuring The Flash, Wonder Woman, Deadman, and Green Arrow, with stories written by Denny O' Neil, Len Wein, Gerry Conway, and others. Looking at the stylistic changes in the artwork over the span of the 7 years represented here, it is interesting to see Garcia-Lopez's Superman evolve from one strongly influenced by Curt Swan to one that is uniquely his own. This collection also highlights the importance of inkers in the comic book medium, with some being better suited for Garcia-Lopez's pencils than others. Undoubtedly, Garcia-Lopez's art shines best when he does his own inking, but Dick Giordano is a close second given their similar art styles. Aesthetically, this is a very handsome hardcover indeed.

Format: Hardcover
I recommend this hardcover collection. I grew up with Garcia-Lopez's art on DC merchandise so I tend to favor his graceful, iconic renditions of DC characters. The stories are fairly good, but not all of them are great. My personal favorite is the Wonder Woman story where she and Superman get into an ideological argument as well as a physical fight. Superman's pairings with Firestorm, Green Arrow, the Metal Men, and Robin are also great fun in this set too. My only complaint though is that there are no extras (like perhaps some original sketches or merchandising art) with this collection which would have made it excellent. You do get more issues than what was originally solicited which is always nice. This is what you actually get: Superman #294, #301-302, #307-309 and #347, All-New Collectors Edition C-54 (Superman vs. Wonder Woman) and DC Comics Presents #1-4, #17, #20, #24 and #31. If you love Garcia-Lopez's work, you will be glad you got this collection.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a compilation of 1970s stories illustrated by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez who has a somewhat lifelike approach to figure drawing without a lot of the exaggerations and distortions found in popular artists of the 1990s. It's the kind of comics art I grew up with. Most people will probably buy this for the Superman vs. Wonder Woman story on the cover which was originally published in a treasury edition. I owned it as a child and wanted to reread the story and, typically, found that I had totally misremembered it. Nevertheless, it is a decent story although it has pretty dumb villains. The heroes in this story are, by the way, the Superman and Wonder Woman of Earth-2; it doesn't say that anywhere, but it states that they are both members of the Justice Society, and the main plot involves World War II. In all the other stories, Superman is the one from Earth-One who was the lead of Superman and Action Comics at that time.

Also in this edition are some team-up stories, including a two-part team up with the Flash which has been reprinted in another DC anthology recently (I forget which) and team-ups with Adam Strange, Green Arrow, Metal Men, and Robin. A nice Lex Luthor story has Superman's body getting enlarged and guest-stars the Atom. This is probably the only story in the book that is distinctly well-written. A multi-part story with Supergirl doing a mind-flunk on Superman at the behest of Kandor psychologists is about as dumb an idea as came out of the 70s. A story with Solomon Grundy shows the original version of the character (before all the constant re-envisionings since the 1990s) but is also clumsy. And there are lots of goofy-looking aliens.

I grew up reading this sort of material, although more than half these stories are new to me.
