Superman has been around for so long that it is just amazing that we still get asked the question of what the best Superman Comics are today. And I have to say that even after all these years, that question still pokes through my head every time I read or watch a Superman comic book. So, without further interruption, let us begin the journey of finding the very best Superman comics ever written. (You know, just one more step towards our inevitable answer.)
Okay, first, let s begin with an interesting one. In 1978, DC comics were actually experimenting with several different kinds of comic books and they decided to pair their most popular superman comics with the most famous heavyweight boxing champion in the world, Muhammad Ali. What happened was a controversial story called "The Day of the Son", which made Ali famous and superman comics even more popular. I can remember reading the first issue and I was blown away by the story, so much so that I would never read anything about superman without reading "The Day of the Son".
Now, let me tell you about a couple of the early action comics that came out right before "The Day of the Son". First there was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles story that showed how Michelangelo was bitten by an alien and became a ninja warrior. Then "Revenge of the Batmen" featured an all time great looking Batman fighting villains such as Joker, Penguin and Two Face. These two books launched the golden age of superheros.
But let's talk about the modern era of superheros. There are some great superheros now. One of the most popular of the modern era is the New Batman. He is batrocuted in the Death of Birds storyline, but still gets to fight crime. The new Batman doesn't have any super human powers like the older Batman did, but he still has the physical attributes of a top flight superhero. You will notice that all of the best superheros in comics today are made of flesh and blood, and they are no longer superman comic books.
A modern day superman is a character that is just as powerful as Batman, if not more. There is a new type of superman, and every all-star superman series has a new type of superman. It would be a very boring world if there were only one type of superheroes, and that is why you will always find so many different types of superheros in comics today.
Some of the all-time great superheros are from the Silver Age, and they are still very popular today. Some of the best superman stories come from the Dark Knight run of comics, and you can find lots of those older Superman comics at some online collectors auctions. There are also a lot of modern day writers that have created great stories that are written as pencil and ink comics. Many of these classic Superman comic books are available for purchase today as hardcovers or just as digital files from various websites.
Even though the Golden Age of superman was short-lived, it was an important time in comic book history. Superman fought crime in Metropolis along with his cousin, friends, and others. Many of the classic superman stories come from the "Funky Chicken" era of superman comics. The character of superman even made his debut on television with the TV show Smallville, which was a spinoff of the successful Superman series. Since then, the character has gone through many different changes and has become one of the most iconic superheroes in the world.
Superman may be a part of our society, but he is still a fictional character and does not have any real life skills or abilities. As such, no one can really judge the abilities of the character, making him a very appealing to both boys and girls. This appeal is what makes Superman one of the best Superman Comic Books to own for both kids and adults. Many of the classic storylines are available for purchase or you could simply read them online. Either way, you will never get tired of reading about this fantastic super hero and his contributions to our culture.
