Ralph Cosentino, a lifelong comic book fan and really nice guy, is the author and illustrator of Superman: The Story of the Man of Steel ($11.46 at Amazon). The book was written and illustrated specifically for the youngest fans of the earth’s greatest superhero. The 40 page hardcover book tells the tale of the caped crime fighter’s amazing journey from the planet Krypton to the town of Smallville, Kansas, to the big city of Metropolis. There he lives a double life as Clark Kent, mild-mannered journalist, and Superman, protector of humanity.
Told in simple, child-friendly language and illustrated with bright, bold artwork inspired by the originals, Superman is the perfect introduction to this beloved American icon. The book will be available in stores on April 1st, 2010.
