A Wonderful Version and Tale of the Man of Steel

I thoroughly enjoyed this project. Gene Luen Yang has been on fire. I read his previous collaboration with Gurihiru on the continuing adventurers of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Superman Smashes the Klan is sure to pique your interest. The The story utilizes the a bit unfamiliar Golden Age version of Superman from the old radio shows. He doesn’t have the full range of powers we normally associate with the modern version of the character. The art was very complimentary. The story was purposeful and charming. 


Loved by all
