The Man of Steel's mettle is tested!
Renowned writer and artist John Byrne's bold reimagining of Superman is regarded as one of the greatest comics runs in history. Joined by lauded industry talents such as Jerry Ordway, Karl Kesel, and John Beatty, Byrne pitted the Last Son of Krypton against a variety of strange foes that evoked the nostalgia of many of Superman's early adventures.
In these continuing tales, Superman aids a mysterious young woman who holds a dark secret, fights a gargantuan primate across Metropolis, deals with superhero possessing a supersize ego, and meets one of his most lethal foes yet—the Silver Banshee. Even the hamlet of Smallville isn't safe from danger when the intergalactic war between the Manhunters and the Guardians of the Universe comes to town during the Millennium crossover event.
This third volume collects Superman #12-15, Superman Annual #1, Action Comics #594-597, Action Comics Annual #1, Adventures of Superman #436-438, Adventures of Superman Annual #1, Booster Gold #23, and Superman: The Earth Stealers #1—plus character profiles from Who's Who Update '87 and Who's Who Update '88.
