Hey guys can you recommend me some of Kelly's superman work except Action comics 775.

I always hear how good he was but i have only read two or three stories from his run.

@squalleon: Definitely pick up his Superman/Wonder Woman annual where Superman and Wonder Woman are transported to Valhalla and fight demons with Thor. Also a Christmas issue by him involving Etrigan is really good.

No problem. I'm a big fan of Kelly's run so I can find some other stories if you want.

Well a lot of his run is crossed over with the other Superman titles but I can think of some stories that are definitely worth reading. Ending Battle, which is a crossover, is an awesome Superman storyline where a bunch of Superman's enemies find out who he is and set out to kill him and his loved ones. The ending is really something special. Plus Action Comics 800 is pretty good too. 787-788 are worth a read as well.

@squalleon: No problem. Just ask if you want anything else. A couple of his issues on Superman/Batman are really great reads as well.

@theincrediblesuperhulk8642: I'm afraid I haven't been able to find any such trades for Kelly's run but let me look into it more and I'll get back to you.

There was one with Ra and Talia. There is also that Russian Zod storyline.

@lvenger: XD There is also Godfall...but that was the last of Joe Kelly's run.

@sandman_: Ugh that was poor IMO. Aside from that, Kelly has one of the best Superman runs ever up there with Elliot Maggin and Curt Swan. But Godfall is a blemish on an otherwise spotless record.

@lvenger: eh, it had a cool costume at least. That's all I remember at the moment.

@sandman_: Well that's to be expected when Michael Turner (may he RIP) is involved in artistic duties for a storyline.

@lvenger: I found the list of trades cool thing is they also collect Loeb, Casey and Schultz run on all the superman title

@lvenger: Google/Amazon I dont think it collects the entire run but still a pretty good chunk of it in about 11 trades
