Back in the days before the advent of organized fandom, the Legion of Super-Heroes was something special, a comic book feature with an avid and loyal following. What was slated to be a one-time appearance in Superboy exploded into comics history, leading to an ongoing series and a startling fan phenomenon. By the mid-1960s, the ongoing adventures of the Legion of Super-Heroes had reached near-cult status in the growing realm of comic book fandom, and some of the most memorable stories in the Legion chronicles were being told. Ferro Lad, Karate Kid, Princess Projectra and Nemesis Kid were introduced to the Legionnaires' roster alongside such classic villains as Emerald Empress, Validus, Computo the Conqueror and Universo. In this second omnibus volume of The Legion of Super-Heroes: The Silver Age, return to the 30th century, a time when teenagers were heroes and the universe was under their protection, with the landmark stories that changed the lives, mythos and roster of the Legion forever. Legion of Super-Heroes: The Silver Age Omnibus Volume 2 collects stories from Adventure Comics #329-360 and Superboy #124-125.

In 1938 Action Comics #1 introduced the world to Superman. In a matter of years, the skies of our imaginations were filled with mutants, aliens and vigilantes. Batman, Wonder Woman and the X-Men - in less than a century they've gone from not existing at all to being everywhere we look. But why? For Grant Morrison, possibly the greatest of contemporary superhero storytellers, these heroes are not simply characters but powerful archetypes whose ongoing story arcs reflect and predict the lives we live. In this exhilarating book, Morrison draws on history, art, mythology, and his own astonishing journey to provide the first true chronicle of the superhero.

After debuting in 1938, Superman soon became an American icon. But why has he maintained his iconic status for nearly 80 years? And how can he still be an American icon when the country itself has undergone so much change? Superman: Persistence of an American Icon examines the many iterations of the character in comic books, comic strips, radio series, movie serials, feature films, television shows, animation, toys, and collectibles over the past eight decades. Demonstrating how Superman’s iconic popularity cannot be attributed to any single creator or text, comics expert Ian Gordon embarks on a deeper consideration of cultural mythmaking as a collective and dynamic process. He also outlines the often contentious relationships between the various parties who have contributed to the Superman mythos, including corporate executives, comics writers, artists, nostalgic commentators, and collectors. Armed with an encyclopedic knowledge of Superman’s appearances in comics and other media, Gordon also digs into comics archives to reveal the prominent role that fans have played in remembering, interpreting, and reimagining Superman’s iconography. Gordon considers how comics, film, and TV producers have taken advantage of fan engagement and nostalgia when selling Superman products. Investigating a character who is equally an icon of American culture, fan culture, and consumer culture, Superman thus offers a provocative analysis of mythmaking in the modern era.
