I like this, but it bounces all over the place between full page covers, smaller covers, newer covers, and older covers. Moreover, most of the covers are not even included. What I was really hoping for was a perfect cover chronology for Superman, Action, Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen. I'm sure one exists and if any reader is aware of it, please post it in the comments. Thanks!

In terms of art, compared to Batman Cover to Cover, it has more covers but less full page covers. The art quality is more or less the same if not a little better.

Superman is an Icon and that is what this book is all about. Superman was the first real superhero, he set the standard for everyone that followed and he continues to set the standard. The covers presented in this book provide a history not just of Superman but of comics themselves. It shows the changes that the man of steel has gone through over the years, it also shows covers selected by individuals involved with the Superman legend and you get to find out what Superman means to them. This is a fantastic book for Superman fans and comic book fans in general, because even if your not a fan of Superman himself, whoever you are a fan of has been influenced by him, and you'll see those influences in the beautiful covers presented in this book.

Can you imagine to have in your own hands a selected collection of Superman covers?

This book has 270 of the must beautiful front pages in the almost 70 years of the character's history. From the original Shuster's art of the 30's and 40's to the amazing Alex Ross' illustrations, the book is like have a time machine to review the best moments of the superhero.

Plus it have a covers' colection from the people in the world of Superman. The writers, the illustrators, the editors and even the actors who portrait the Superman's Mithology pick their favorite cover and explains their choice.

This book is a legacy.

All the great cover artwork from the past! This is a great book for Superman fans of all ages. If you were going to have just one Superman book in your library I think this would be the one!
