Edited and designed by Dean Mullaney with an Introduction by Mark Waid, the first book in IDW’s The Library of American Comics’ Superman Sundays series collects 170 sequential Sunday pages that have never been reprinted. These classic comics, beginning May 9, 1943 and continuing through August 4, 1946, fill another major gap in the Superman mythos.
In a partnership between IDW’s The Library of American Comics and DC Entertainment, this volume begins a comprehensive archival program to bring back into print every one of the Superman Sunday newspaper strips. The complete comics will be published in three sub-sets, The Golden Age (1940s), The Atomic Age (1950s), and The Silver Age (1960s). The color Sundays and black-and-white dailies contained distinct storylines and will be released in separate, concurrent, series.
