After Batman, Superman is the best known Detective Comics (DC)character in the world. The first DC Superman movie was released in 1978 and he has seven movies with his name in the title along with multiple TV shows (e.g. Adventures of Superman, Lois and Clark, and Smallville). This renown wouldn't be possible without the creation and story writing in comic books. What are your top five favorite Superman stories from the comic books?

I agree. :) For a while the Absolute was available very cheaply but it looks like it's around $70 now.

American Alien was a good read.

For such a marquee property it is interesting that stand out stories seem as rare as they do.

I have heard positive comments about Mark Waid's Superman Birthright. I thought it was decent. I have enjoyed the whole Superman from another dimension in Superman Rebirth though I am not current.

Donovan | 1153 comments I forgot Unchained. Just reread it in deluxe format. Pretty awesome.


message 13: by Cheese (new)

Cheese All-star is the best though. I wish Morrison would do a follow up to that.


message 14: by Donovan (new)

Donovan | 1153 comments I agree. It’s well-balanced and one of the best illustrated.
