I liked the actual story in this TPB. Superman is back from being gone for a year and not everyone believes it. Some think he's a fraud, others just wonder, some don't care. Then a crazy auctioneer starts stealing things and then people (heroes and villains), including Superman.

Then, because that story was only three issues long the second part of the book was three classic Superman/others team up stories from the 70s and 80s. I especially liked the Metal Men one 'cause I've always thought they were cool characters. (So, so much sass from things that are made of metal...)

A solid collection. Good art, interesting stories and just a little bit of Lois and Clark, I always appreciate it when we get some Lois and Clark. ( )
