*DC: The Silver Age Superman is a favourite with our readership – and with ourselves, we confess – and we’re very pleased to welcome more than twenty issues of the Man of Steel’s own series, 10 and 12 cent issues featuring aliens, robots, Red Kryptonite and other weird bodily transformations, guest-appearances galore by the Legion of Super-Heroes (and the Legion of Super-Pets!), ‘Imaginary Stories’ featuring unlikely adoptions and weddings, and Lois Lane’s desperate attempts to trick and ensnare Superman into a loving and honest marriage. Ahem. All of it complete nonsense, of course, but given gravitas and believability by the art of Curt Swan and George Klein, primary illustrators during this period, who gave Metropolis and its denizens a realism and integrity which allowed the reader’s imaginations to accept even the most outlandish premises. We open with #134, featuring yet another challenger for the Superman title, and close with #183, an 80-Page Giant at the shocking price of 25 cents (!) one of the earliest re-presentations of Golden Age stories, including Mr. Mxyzptlk’s first appearance.
