Before the legend...

Before the Man of Tomorrow...

There was Clark Kent, a young man coming to terms with the awesome power that fate had granted him. Experience the majestic tale of his transformation from country boy to the world's greatest hero.

A tale of Superman's earliest adventures told on a mythic scale by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, the Eisner Award-winning creative team behind Batman: The Long Halloween and Batman: Dark Victory, with spectacular coloring by Bjarne Hansen.

Synopsis:

The Eisner Award-nominated miniseries by Batman: The Long Halloween's Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale — following the Man of Steel from Smallville to Metropolis — is collected in for the first time in paperback!

Synopsis:

The catalyst for the Smallville television program, Superman for All Seasons is an emotional and insightful examination of Clark Kent's transformation from a powerful boy into a heroic man. Told through the course of four seasons in the Man of Steel's adolescent life, this coming-of-age tale humanizes the alien from another planet so that he is not only realistic but also relatable. Featuring indepth characterizations of Lana Lang, Lex Luthor, Lois Lane and the Kents, this groundbreaking story of a simple midwestern boy with awesome abilities illustrates that it is the man, not the powers, that make Clark Kent a hero.

Edie , August 14, 2012 (view all comments by Edie )
I used to have a problem with Supes. Being a fan of the Bat, Superman was a little too squeaky clean for me. I’m not saying that all of our modern heroes need to be dark, tortured antiheroes, but the whole Midwestern farm boy turned reporter thing never really interested me. Then I read Superman For All Seasons and something happened. I can only describe it as a warming of the cockles of my tiny Grinch heart. Loeb and Sale have given us a beautiful and elegant exploration of the origins of Superman, from his beginnings as a boy growing up in Smallville, to his days as a man and superman in Metropolis. The graphic novel bears a dedication to Norman Rockwell and it’s easy to see why when taking Sales’s careful pencils and Bjarne Hansen’s delicate colors into account. But perhaps the biggest debt it owes to Rockwell is its particular vision of America, a vision which, even if you’ve never known it or can’t possibly believe in it makes you mourn it, yearn for it and wish that it could be.
