5.0 out of 5 stars The Last DC Archive Ever ? 23 May 2014
By Stephen Vincent Kempton - Published on Amazon.com
Many are speculating that this might be the last DC Archive ever. Nothing has been confirmed but no new DC Archives have been solicited in 6 months. Also the increased production of Omnibus and Chronicles lead many too believe that they are the replacements. I certainly hope not but if this is the last one they have certainly gone out on a high note.

I have always found it a bit of a Paradox that editor Mort Weisinger known to be a crabby,single minded Dictator of an editor spearheaded this era of Superman stories which are absolutely delightful. It is a time of magical world building mythology. If I try examine the stories nobody acts like real people that exist in our world, instead they all act like 10 year boys. They tease each other cruelly, cry at the drop of a hat and propose marriage often. This Archive is jammed full of quirky characters, fascinating places and mostly silly villains.

This volumes collects 14 issues of Superman stories from Action #255 to #268 and 8 issues of Superman from #132 to #139. The Action issues are only one story per comic because the book was shared with Supergirl. The Superman issues are either three separate Superman stories or a 3 part novel length Superman story. The original comics came out in 1959 and 1960.

The book is over 400 pages of comics with an Introduction by Tom Peyer using actual letters from Mark Waid as a child. While this is a clever idea I found it to be not as much fun as the past two introductions which had me howling with laughter.

90% of the writing is from Otto Binder and Jerry Siegel. Otto Binder is one of my favorites and was instrumental in creating the only other magical era in Superheroes that I love as much as Weisinger Superman era, that being the Golden age Captain Marvel. Co-creator of Superman Jerry Siegel never gets enough credit in my book for the fun later stories he created for DC. Jerry Coleman and Robert Bernstein each contribute a pair and moonlighting Batman scripter Bill Finger produces the first Lori Lemaris the mermaid story.

Speaking of Lori she appears in three stories, Red Kryptonite is also featured three times and we get numerous trip to the Planet Krypton. The Fortress of Solitude and The Bottle City of Kandor. Also guest starring more then once are Supergirl, Superboy and even Superbaby.

For villains in this archive we have three Luthor stories and three Bizarro tales, and also two featuring Hercules of the 20th Century plus the return of Mr Mxyzptlk and Titano the Super Ape.

The art is all done by the trio of Superman artists that dominated his books for decades, Wayne Boring, Al Plastino and Cut Swan. Swan does all the covers which are also lovingly reproduced in this volume.

So I bid you to release that 10 year child found in all of us and travel back to this magical, quirky age of Superman. My Highest Recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Number Three is More than the Charm 21 Jun. 2014
By J. R. Trtek - Published on Amazon.com
The stories contained in this volume represent the tail end of my focus on Superman as a child. I had first started reading comics in earnest in 1957, starting with science-fictional titles like Mystery in Space and Strange Adventures, then the following year latching onto the Son of Krypton and the other members of the then-burgeoning Superman family. This interest would last until late 1959 and 1960, when Green Lantern would become my favorite DC superhero of all time, though Superman would remain dear. This volume, featuring stories from Superman and Action Comics between August 1959 and September 1960, is graced with Curt Swan Covers and stories mostly written by Otto Binder and penciled mostly by Wayne Boring, and they represent perhaps the zenith of the baroque, wacky Mort Weisinger regime. Highly recommended. And I hope a previous reviewer is wrong in stating that this might be the last Archives edition ever. There's still some remaining gold to be mined in the "Man of Tomorrow" vein. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great memories ! 23 May 2014
By Bill - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I read many of these stories when I was just a kid. There are a couple of really great epic tales, along with some a little on the silly side. The cover art was always great and a real tease (because the stories were not always as great as the covers.) The artwork is reproduced beautifully. I was surprised to see what a great job that John Forte did in inking Curt Swan - the combination is beautiful. ( I never liked John Forte's primitive-looking pencils on the Legion of Super Heroes. ) So, if you grew up with these stories, get this book - you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Silver Age Superman 30 Jun. 2014
By R. Fletcher - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a great book filled with Superman at his best. Beautiful artwork and fun stories. I sure hope there will be another volume as these stories are when Superman was the greatest. If you grew up during these years as I did you are going to have a wonderful time seeing all these stories again. Highly recommended!
5.0 out of 5 stars Superman 21 Dec. 2014
By Dennis J. McCarn - Published on Amazon.com

These adventures of Superman from the early 60s are great. Honestly, a few stories are way out there, and totally not believable. But, most of the stories are rousing adventures that are wrapped up in one issue. No crossovers, no "to be continued", each issue in the book is a great look at some great art and a variety of writers.
