Book Review: Superman: The Atomic Age Sunday Pages, Volume 3

Superman: The Atomic Age Sunday Pages, Volume 3 (1956-1959)Superman: The Atomic Age Sunday Pages, Volume 3 by Alvin Schwartz

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


In three years of beautifully colored Sunday Comic Strips, Superman takes on genies, alien invaders, and Old West Villains while dealing with few comic adventures that are more about Lois Lane's antics, a TV host who seems overly interested in learning Superman's secret identity, and the biggest terror of all...being suddenly obese.

This is actually a really good book. Most of the adventures are light-earted, but don't become as goofy as some Silver Age tails would. Superman also shows some real cunning in a few, the genie story is my favorite in this book for that reason. The art is great for the era, and overall I have to say this is probably my favorite collection of Sunday strips since the Golden Age.
