Book Description

12 Sep 2013 Superman Adventures
Despite being shrunk down to two inches tall by Professor Hamilton's molecular scaling generator, the Phantom Zone villains Jax-Ur and Mala are at large again, ready to wreak havoc on Superman, Metropolis and the world.  It's an even bigger problem for all concerned when the Man of Steel is also shrunk down, and his Kryptonian enemies stand ready to cut him further down to size!

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent adventure for younger readers 22 Dec 2013
By No More Mr. Mice Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER
The 22-page story "All Creatures Great and Small... Part One" from the comic book Superman Adventures #7 is reprinted in this volume. This is the first half of a two-part story, and is an excellent adventure story for younger readers (and older ones too!) who are interested in the exploits of Superman and his supporting cast. The style of the artwork is heavily influenced by the animated TV / DVD series of DC Comics' superheroes, and so is likely to be familiar to readers. The story is well-written with a clear storyline, characterisation, and well-described action and problem solving situations. As well as the comic story, there is a supporting page of writer & artist biographies (all of whom, as well as the colourist, are veterans of the comic book industry), a general and a Superman-specific glossary, and two pages of Visual Questions and Prompts.

"All Creatures Great and Small... Part One" begins with the Kryptonian villains Jax-Ur and Mala, who have previously escaped from the Phantom Zone, being shrunk down to 2-inches tall by Professor Hamilton's Molecular Scaling Generator and imprisoned in a miniature cell that is to be kept away from sunlight, for without the rays of our yellow sun, they will not be able to use their Kryptonian super powers. Naturally, pretty soon something goes wrong when the criminal organisation Intergang try to rescue some of their members from prison, causing damage to the building housing the Kryptonian prison and allowing sunlight in to power up the prisoners... Jax-Ur uses the Generator to shrink Superman down to his size before escaping with Mala.
