Overview

The Man of Steel's newspaper comic strips are among the rarest of all Superman collectibles. This comprehensive series helps remedy this gap in Superman history by bringing back into print every one of the daily newspaper strips.

In these fifteen storylines by writer Alvin Schwartz and artist Wayne Boring, Superman faces off against the "Crime Mentalist" who can predict crimes before they happen; finds himself locked up for speeding in "Superman, Jailbird;" plays cupid to help a millionaire Prince Charming find the mysterious "Miss Whisper;" and is at the mercy of Enthor's paralyzing weapon!

Other stories in this third addition to the series include "Lois's Secret Identity" and "The Super Elixir."
