Superman first landed on the planet Earth in 1938. An inveterate champion of the downtrodden and oppressed, his principles and virtues reflected the imaginations of his two teenage creators and the Depression-era world in which they lived. The Superman Masterpiece Edition is a spectacular tribute to the rise of the world’s first, most significant, and most-loved superhero. This ultra-deluxe package features an exclusive statue of Superman; an accurately sized, colour reprint of the first issue of Superman’s own comic book from 1939; and a lavishly illustrated, colour hardcover book by best-selling author Les Daniels detailing Superman’s Golden Age. This supremely collectible commemoration offered a nostalgic view of the ’30s, ’40s, and ’50s when the Man of Steel captured the world’s imagination.
