For over 60 years the world-famous Superman has used his powers to fight for truth, justice and fair play against the forces of evil and chaos. For this book, DK has been permitted access to the archives of DC Comics, shapers of the Superman legend. Specially commissioned artworks reveal key locations, such as the Planet Krypton, as they have never been shown before. The secret workings of installations such as Superman's Fortress of Solitude are also displayed. Crucial events and characters are exclusively illustrated with drawings from the original comic books.
