This 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.
Wayne Boring was born in Minnesota in 1905 and studied art in his hometown, as well as the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He became one of Joe Shuster's early assistants in the late 1930s and eventually assumed the full drawing duties. His rendition of Superman became the most recognizable version during the 1950s and '60s.

Editorial Reviews

"This collection of what editor Dean Mullaney has called "ridiculously rare" comics (finding a complete run of the strip is harder than getting Mr. Mxyzptlk to say his name backwards) is something special. It’s a recovered piece of cultural history." –The Comics Journal"The introduction to this magnificent volume mentions ‘Siegel, Shuster and their assistants’ struggling to meet the demand for strips. I will leave the question of who did what to those many pundits on the net. Whoever did it, they are well-served by this large, beautiful bound volume in glorious colour. No squinting at tiny lettering or little pictures with this production." –SFCrowsNest
