The legendary science fiction epic that brought together The Man of Steel and The Greatest is back in two spectacular hardcover editions!

In 1978, an alien race called the Scrubb demands that Earth's greatest champion battle their world's own greatest fighter. Both Superman and Muhammad Ali step forward — and to determine who is truly Earth's greatest fighter, Superman temporarily loses his powers and faces Ali in the ring. Ultimately, the duo must work together to defeat the Scrubb, with Ali taking on their champion while Superman battles their space-armada.

The facsimile edition hardcover reprints this hard–to–find title at its original size of approximately 10" wide by 13.25" high!

 
This book is also available in a hardcover Deluxe size, which features an afterword by former DC Editor-in-Chief Jenette Kahn.  The Deluxe Hardcover also has a sketchbook section from Neal Adams which is not in the facsimile edition.
