Superman/Wonder Woman Vol. 5: A Savage End by Peter J. Tomasi Book Resume:

WHO LIVES, WHO DIES … A “power couple” no more, Superman and Wonder Woman need each other more than ever if they’re to defeat the immortal despot Vandal Savage. By stealing the Man of Steel’s powers, Savage has realized his master plan to draw back to Earth the comet that gave him his power eons ago. And this time, he’s confident it will grant him unspeakable might. In his weakened state, Superman is a near-certain casualty at the hands of Savage and the super-powered genetic offspring that kill in his name. Diana appeals to the Olympian gods to heal him, knowing that they will first put his spiritual form through an emotionally grueling test to determine his worthiness. Should the God of War’s desperate gamble pay off, she and Superman must still contend with the immortal madman and his progeny. Will that epic battle move the estranged lovers to reaffirm their feelings for one another…or must one final tragedy bring them back into each other’s arms? Critically acclaimed writer Peter J. Tomasi (SUPERMAN) and artists Doug Mahnke (JUSTICE LEAGUE), Cliff Richards (LOBO), Ed Benes (RED LANTERNS) and Jorge Jimenez (EARTH 2: SOCIETY) chronicle what appear to be the final days of the world’s most powerful couple in SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN VOL. 5, collecting issues #25-29 and collected edition exclusive SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN #30-31.

Is Superman Circumcised? by Roy Schwartz Book Resume:

Superman is the original superhero, an American icon, and arguably the most famous character in the world--and he's Jewish! Introduced in June 1938, the Man of Steel was created by two Jewish teens, Jerry Siegel, the son of immigrants from Eastern Europe, and Joe Shuster, an immigrant. They based their hero's origin story on Moses, his strength on Samson, his mission on the golem, and his nebbish secret identity on themselves. They made him a refugee fleeing catastrophe on the eve of World War II and sent him to tear Nazi tanks apart nearly two years before the US joined the war. In the following decades, Superman's mostly Jewish writers, artists, and editors continued to borrow Jewish motifs for their stories, basing Krypton's past on Genesis and Exodus, its society on Jewish culture, the trial of Lex Luthor on Adolf Eichmann's, and a future holiday celebrating Superman on Passover. A fascinating journey through comic book lore, American history, and Jewish tradition, this book examines the entirety of Superman's career from 1938 to date, and is sure to give readers a newfound appreciation for the Mensch of Steel!

Superman and Comic Book Brand Continuity by Phillip Bevin Book Resume:

Superman and Comic Book Brand Continuity traces the development of comic book continuity through the case study of Superman, examining the character’s own evolution across several media, including comics, radio, television, and film. Superman’s relationship with continuity illustrates a key feature of the way in which people in western societies construct stories about themselves. In this respect, the book is a study of narrative and how comic book continuity reflects the way that, in wider western post-enlightenment culture, storytelling shapes the common sense and received wisdoms that influence how we perceive "reality." The scope of the analysis extends from Superman’s creation in the late 1930s to the recent films Man of Steel (2013) and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), as well as the current comic book reboot Rebirth (2016).

Superman - Action Comics Vol. 1: Path of Doom by Dan Jurgens Book Resume:

He was the world’s greatest hero. Then the world he knew was wiped from existence. Escaping with his wife and son, Superman fled to a strange new version of Earth. There he worked in the shadows and watched as a different Superman-younger, less experienced, but every bit as heroic-defended his planet. That young hero died, and now the original Man of Steel is ready to step forward and replace him. But he’s not ready for what comes next. Seizing the opportunity of a lifetime, Lex Luthor has donned a battle suit of incredible power and declared himself to be the new Superman. What’s more, someone else claiming to be Clark Kent has also appeared in Metropolis. And then, into the middle of this chaos, lands the greatest foe Superman has ever faced: Doomsday. To save Metropolis and his family from this monstrous menace, Superman must join forces with Luthor, Wonder Woman and any other ally or enemy he can-because he knows from bitter experience where the path of Doom inevitably leads. Collecting issues #957-962 of the world’s greatest comic, SUPERMAN: ACTION COMICS VOL. 1: PATH OF DOOM unites legendary Superman writer Dan Jurgens with artists Patch Zircher, Tyler Kirkham, Stephen Segovia and Art Thibert to kick off an all-new era for the Man of Tomorrow!

ÒAction Comics continues the push to #1,000 with a Superman tale that calls back to the characterÕs roots while charting new ground and exploring new angles to his history.Ó ÑComicosity ÒWhenever Jurgens depicts the Man of Steel or Booster Gold, the issue has a great, old-school vibe to it.Ó ÑIGN Is Jor-El really alive? Superman and Booster Gold travel back in time to verify the claims that Kal-ElÕs father somehow survived the destruction of Krypton. What they find, though, is a vastly different world than history has shown. When the time intruders are discovered, Jor-El and General Zod collaborate to capture or destroy them. The Eradicator will chase the pair through time to 25th century Gotham City and back to Krypton in pursuit of justice. Unable to alter the past, Superman and Booster must make certain they survive. Zod, his son Lor-Zod and Ursa want to make certain they do not. Not that things are perfect back on Earth. The Pentagon reports that Lois LaneÕs father, General Sam Lane, has gone missing. When they wonÕt mount a rescue operation, she goes after him on her own. Or so she thinks. Her super-powered son Jon tags along, adding a new level of risk to the mission. Dan JurgensÕ final major story arc, collecting Action Comics #993-999 and a story from Action Comics Special #1, raises the stakes for all concerned. These high-powered tales are illustrated by Jurgens, Brett Booth, Will Conrad, and Norm Rapmund.

Re-Constructing the Man of Steel by Martin Lund Book Resume:

In this book, Martin Lund challenges contemporary claims about the original Superman’s supposed Jewishness and offers a critical re-reading of the earliest Superman comics. Engaging in critical dialogue with extant writing on the subject, Lund argues that much of recent popular and scholarly writing on Superman as a Jewish character is a product of the ethnic revival, rather than critical investigations of the past, and as such does not stand up to historical scrutiny. In place of these readings, this book offers a new understanding of the Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster in the mid-1930s, presenting him as an authentically Jewish American character in his own time, for good and ill. On the way to this conclusion, this book questions many popular claims about Superman, including that he is a golem, a Moses-figure, or has a Hebrew name. In place of such notions, Lund offers contextual readings of Superman as he first appeared, touching on, among other ideas, Jewish American affinities with the Roosevelt White House, the whitening effects of popular culture, Jewish gender stereotypes, and the struggles faced by Jewish Americans during the historical peak of American anti-Semitism. In this book, Lund makes a call to stem the diffusion of myth into accepted truth, stressing the importance of contextualizing the Jewish heritage of the creators of Superman. By critically taking into account historical understandings of Jewishness and the comics’ creative contexts, this book challenges reigning assumptions about Superman and other superheroes’ cultural roles, not only for the benefit of Jewish studies, but for American, Cultural, and Comics studies as a whole.

Adapting Superman by John Darowski Book Resume:

Almost immediately after his first appearance in comic books in June 1938, Superman began to be adapted to other media. The subsequent decades have brought even more adaptations of the Man of Steel, his friends, family, and enemies in film, television, comic strip, radio, novels, video games, and even a musical. The rapid adaptation of the Man of Steel occurred before the character and storyworld were fully developed on the comic book page, allowing the adaptations an unprecedented level of freedom and adaptability. The essays in this collection provide specific insight into the practice of adapting Superman from comic books to other media and cultural contexts through a variety of methods, including social, economic, and political contexts. Authors touch on subjects such as the different international receptions to the characters, the evolution of both Clark Kent's character and Superman's powers, the importance of the radio, how the adaptations interact with issues such as racism and Cold War paranoia, and the role of fan fiction in the franchise. By applying a wide range of critical approaches to adaption and Superman, this collection offers new insights into our popular entertainment and our cultural history.
