Format: Paperback
This is Superman written by the man who wrote "Understanding Comics". Scott McCloud's storytelling is so clear and beautiful in this volume. It's almost like a real application of the principles he outlined in his book. And he does it all almost effortlessly to the envy of many comic creators.
The stories are set in Paul Dini's Animated continuity and it expands on many of the characters that we've previously encountered in the TV show (Metallo, Brainiac, etc.). The artwork by Rick Burchett, Ty Templeton, Terry Austin and Bret Blevins capture the dynamism and movement of the Animated Series. Almost like you were holding a "cartoon" on paper.
Read this volume to rediscover the charm of the Man of Steel. Then rush down to your local video store and rent all the Superman cartoons you can find!

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Sam Thursday on August 11, 2003
Format: Paperback
As with the Batman Adventures books, this is one of the clearest and most charming depictions of the Man of Steel around. The stories are inventive and well-told, with neither the continuity clutter of the mainstream books nor the uneven artwork that plagues the larger titles from issue to issue. All the stories here are self-contained, and the excellent introductory issue by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm is topped again and again by the legendary Scott McCloud, whose clear writing style belies some of the cleverest plotlines in any Superman comic. The sure-footed and simple line art is the work of Rick Burchett from issue 2 onward, perfectly complementary to McCloud's scripts. The book itself is a pretty no-frills presentation on newsprint, but it does the job.
The best of the stories is the last - "Seonimod," a time-running-backwards story with Mr. Mxyzptlk, but then they're all pretty great.
Overall, an excellent choice for anyone who likes a good read, and a kid-friendly and clever introduction to The Man of Steel.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This collects the first few issues of the Superman Adventures comics magazine. As with the Batman Adventures books, this is based off of the animated cartoon. The stories are very well told by PAUL DINI (a master in the comics medium) and Scott McCloud. All stories here are self-contained. The stories do not come off as boring but rather like fun little vignettes that anyone can really enjoy. A great choice for anyone looking to expand on their Superman comics collection.
