A similar treatment as "Batman Cover to Cover", this is a collection of 270 of the greatest covers of Superman comics (although that is quite subjective; a few of these are not too memorable, and a few of my favorites have been omitted). There are commentaries by various people involved in the Superman mythos at one time or another, and the covers are arranged not chronologically, but by category. I did enjoy seeing the covers, and it brought about a pleasant nostalgia for some of the comics either now in my collection, or in it when I was a boy. I could have done with a bit more annotation, especially as to the stories behind many of the covers. ( )
