This second take on the Greatest Superman Stories divides the collection into two volumes. This first volume collects 10 Superman stories.

Most of these have been reprinted elsewhere either in Decade collections or in the previous version of the Greatest Superman Stories ever told, but that can also be taken as a measure of the quality of the work and that the compilers generally got things right.

The book begins with a somewhat dry introduction by Michael Uslan.

Next up is the origin of Superman

Great introduction to the character of Superman. His origin, morals, motives and personality are explored throughout this collection and his evolution over the years was intriguing to see. While I am not a big Superman fan, I now have a newfound respect for the character that was previously lacking. Solid collection showcasing "The Man of Steel"
The best story in the whole book, by far is the very first story. Superman takes Hitler and Stalin to the World court.
This one is another step along my personal journey to discovering what everyone says are the best Superman stories ever done. I had pooled resources and a few of the stories on everyone's lists appeared in this book, so I picked it up.

While I'm not anywhere near the encyclopedic knowledge I wish to have of Superman and his adventures, I've read a good many Superman stories... and I'm sad to say that this book does not have many of what I myself consider the greatest.

I mean, this book is a grea
