Synopsis

An unforgettable hardcover collection of WATCHMEN writer Alan Moore's definitive Superman tales that is sure to appeal of readers of his BATMAN: THE KILLING JOKE graphic novel. Moore teams with Curt Swan, the definitive Superman artist from the 1950's through the 1970's, to tell the final adventure of the Man of Steel featuring his last stand against Lex Luthor, Brainiac and his other foes in "WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE MAN OF TOMORROW?". This volume also includes Moore's classic early collaboration with WATCHMEN illustrator Dave Gibbons, "FOR THE MAN WHO HAS EVERYTHING", in which Batman, Robin and Wonder Woman find Superman held captive by the villain Mongul in the Fortress of Solitude and dreaming of an idyllic life on Krypton courtesy of a wish-fulfilling parasitic plant known as the Black Mercy. Both tales are considered two of the top five all-time best Superman stories among fans.

The rare first team-up adventure between the Man of Tomorrow and Swamp Thing, the character that first brought Moore to notoriety in the United States, is included as an additional bonus.

In 1986, DC Comics decided to reboot the Superman series. But first, it asked Watchmen creator Alan Moore to pen a farewell to the original Man of Steel. The comic, now reprinted in hardback, is a surprisingly tender elegy to Superman's rich history.

The Gil Kane story reprinted here, for instance, was just reprinted a few months ago in a hardcover collection of Kane’s Superman work (whereas some of his gorgeous longer-format work on various Superman annuals has never been reprinted).
