Book Review – Superman: The Ultimate Guide to the Man of Steel

9781465408754HAfter having watched many many trailers and spots for this summer’s Man of Steel I keep having a debate with myself about whether I can take LTD. Sadly, I think it is just a little too scary for him cause when you have a guy like Michael Shannon playing Zod then you know things are hardcore. However, since Superman will be everywhere this summer I want the boy to be able to know what he is talking about. Daniel Wallace’s Superman: The Ultimate Guide to the Man of Steel is just such bible. While the words are above LTD’s paygrade, there are so many awesome splash pages that he doesn’t care that he can’t spell Krypton. The Superbook covers our hero from Supes to Nuts (if you count Lex Luthor as a nut) highlighting milestones from his 75 year run in the comics. While the art of the Golden Age has that awesome classic look I love the modern depictions especially when the artists go for that Christopher Reeve homage. But I know what you’re thinking; does it include the classic fight with Muhammad Ali? And the answer is, of course it does.
