Superman was the first superhero in many respects to the comic book industry. If it wasn’t for the creation of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster’s Man of Steel, we probably wouldn’t have the likes of Batman and Wonder Woman. (Probably.) But they created Superman and, in turn, gave the world its greatest hero and champion. It’s only right that Insight Editions latest book turns to that very hero, especially as we’re about to see him return to the big screen in the March 25th film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Insight Editions have published a great line of “The World According To” books. We’ve had Spider-Man, Wolverine, Batman, and Wonder Woman represented to great effect. Their latest – “The World According To Superman” is out in book stores and online now. It’s also penned by Louise Simonson, one of the most prolific writers on DC Comics’ Superman titles. Including insights into the world of the grandfather of all super heroes, “The World According To Superman” is sure to entertain fans of all ages, especially ones that are rooting for the Man of Steel in Warner Bros. follow up to 2013’s Man of Steel.
