The Superman Files ($75) by Matthew Manning (author of The Batman Files) reveals the secret life of the man named Clark Kent and the world of the greatest superhero. It’s a comprehensive account of his history, employing clippings from the Daily Planet, journal entries, surviving artifacts from Krypton, schematics for the Fortress of Solitude and other technology, files from Stryker’s Island Prison, as well as hundreds of “photographs” of Superman’s enemies and allies culled from modern Superman comics.
The Superman Files offers a complete, in-depth life story of the Man of Steel, from his birth on Krypton as Kal-El through his present, as Clark Kent and Superman, and even onward into the future.
Appealing to Superman fans of any age—from new collectors just starting out with the New 52 to longtime readers who have followed the character from his very first adventures—there is something for everyone. With a modern tone and a deep respect for his legacy, The Superman Files is not only entertaining, but it is also a complete and thorough history of the Man of Steel.
This massive 312 page hardcover aims to be the most comprehensive life story of Clark Kent ever attempted. In stores on November 5, 2013.
