IDW To Collect Classic Superman Comic Strips In New Hardcovers Starting In December

Classic Superman comic strips that have never seen the light of day outside of decades-old newspapers are getting the hardcover treatment from IDW, in partnership with DC Entertainment.

The publisher announced Tuesday it would reprint Sunday strips from the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s, starting with a volume covering 170 weeks from 1943 to 1946. Each book in the series will include an introduction by noted Superman lover Mark Waid and a cover by Peter Poplaski.

The books will come in an oversized 9.25″ x 12″ format. The first of the hardcovers will pack 184 pages when it ships in December.

The first volume deals with Superman’s fictional involvement in World War II and his reintegration back into civilian life, which involves dealing with a threat from an evil space queen who wanted to marry him. You know, like most GIs who came back from the war.

The series of hardcovers joins IDW’s other reprints of classic DC comic strips, including Wonder Woman comics from the 1940s and Batman strips from the 1960s.
