Superman: The Dailies (1998) by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster
This is a thick hardcover edition that collects three softcover editions that were published a bit later, according to comics.org.
The innards seem to be just the innards from the softcover editions…
… even down to the page numbering starting over twice. So they just printed the three books and sent the innards over to a binder to bind them all into one whopping brick of a hardcover edition?
I didn’t actually read this book before doing this blog post, because I just don’t have the time. But perhaps I’ll get around to it later, and then I’ll perhaps update this blog post? So this is a placeholder post? Perhaps?
Time will tell.
I did actually read one sequence — where Clark Kent takes on a dishonest realtor.
Things get heavy, so Superman steps in and… well… tortures the villain.
It’s a quite extensive sequence where the capitalist swine is really put through the wringer.
In later sequences, he takes on domestic abuse.
Anyway, this book is really well reproduced — the strips look really sharp, and the format is big and generous.
I also happen to have one of the softcover books…
… and they, indeed, have exactly the same paper etc.
And… Superman apparently has the power to give blind people back their sight? Cool.
Anyway, that’s it.
