For any Superman fan, old, young or just one who just discovered this king of Superheroes, this book is for you!
It has a wonderful and exciting way of telling the origins stories that has created this legend, the many variations, the characters in all the superman history from it's birth to today. It showcases all the villains, secondary characters and many alternate origin stories. It truly is worth the money and it comes in a beautifully designed book, every page is perfectly illustrated and when closed the pages are golden...
I highly recommend this book, it truly is a gem for any and all Superman Fans out there!

This is the guide that explains where it al began, how he and his villains evolved and how he became the first and greatest superhero of all. It helps you understand the different ages, side stories and interpretations in various comics.
So if you're new to Superman (f.e. loved the new Man of Steel movie and want to know more) or you're a big time Superman fan and want to get to know him more thoroughly, this is a must have.
If you somehow hated the new Man of Steel movie, you should read this one as well, it will helps you accept some of the decisions made in this movie, since Superman hasn't always been the big symbol of hope for mankind doing what's right all the time.
