Superman: The War Years 1938-1945

New compilation of comic books from the early years of Superman detailing his involvement in WW2. First time ever look at Superman in this view of war. Superman was not like any previous comic book character. He was the first costumed man with two identities, who possessed extraordinary strength and powers. He would protect the public when ordinary measures would not do. He was not the first super hero, but the Man of Steel would become the prototype for all super heroes thereafter.
