Abstract
The Krypton Companion unlocks the secrets of Superman’s Silver and Bronze Ages, the days when kryptonite came in multiple colors and super-pets scampered across the skies! Writer/editor Michael Eury explores the legacy of classic Superman editors Mort Weisinger and Julius Schwartz through all-new interviews with Neal Adams, Murphy Anderson, Cary Bates, Rich Buckler, Nick Cardy, José Luis García-López, Keith Giffen, Elliot S! Maggin, Jim Mooney, Dennis O'Neil, Bob Oksner, Martin Pasko, bob Rozakis, Jim Shooter, Len Wein, Marv Wolfman, and other fan favorites! Plus: Super-artist Curt Swan’s 1987 essay “Drawing Superman,” Jerry Siegel's “lost” imaginary story “The Death of Clark Kent,” Mark Waid’s tribute to Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes, Superman’s appearances in the media and in Marvel Comics, and rare and previously unpublished artwork by Swan, Adams, Wayne Boring, Alan Davis, Adam Hughes, Paul Smith, Bruce Timm, and other Super-stars. Bonus: A roundtable discussion with modern-day creators (including John Byrne, Jeph Loeb, and Alex Ross) examining Superman’s influential past! Plus a (last-page) Introduction by Bizarro No. 1 (by Seinfeld writer David Mandel), and a super cover by Dave Gibbons!
