Showcase Presents: second tranche

FT1 comment • 1,013 views

Last July I ranked and annotated the first dozen volumes in DC’s Showcase Presents bargain vintage reprint series (500pp, B&W, about £11). Time for another look. In approximate order of preference since then:

Superman 3

This is wonderful material. A lot of it is deeply silly and childish, but this also features some of the best Superman stories I’ve ever read, and consistently excellent art from Boring, Plastino, Swan and Schaffenberger.
