Superman Recommendations

Completely agree…well put.

Along w/ these suggestions, I’d add in Unchained and For Tomorrow, especially if you’re a Jim Lee fan. Speeding Bullets is also a cool Elseworlds story that’s actually about as much Batman as it is Superman


Wasn’t a huge Supes fan until I read Superman For All Seasons. That one really opened me up to the concept of the character outside of his backstory, abilities, and stature.


The only Superman story I ever loved is also the only Kurt Busiek story I ever loved- Secret Identity. Just an absolutely perfect, beautiful peach of a story.
