Editorial Reviews

"The stories are all over the place. They include dinosaurs, knights in shining armor, and baby Lois Lane. Silver Age stories knew no limits. Grant Morrison was able to transform predicaments like these into his modern classic, “All-Star Superman.” Some of it is silly. Some of it is archaic. Any Super-fan will enjoy it. Any fan of Chris Claremont and Frank Miller can appreciate the campy abyss from which they delivered us." –Fanbase Press"The Silver Age was a great time for the Man of Steel, and with these daily strips along with a great foreword and introduction, you can gain a real insight in to just what the significance and historical context of these stories were." –Flickering Myth
