Best Superman comic books

#1 Posted by TheIronLord (94 posts) - - Show Bio


I really dig this character, but I don't really know which comic books are good and showcase his abilities well. So I would really appreciate if some more experienced readers could point some good ones. Preferably from 2000 up and his most powerful, most badass ones. I enjoy extremely strong characters and I guess I can't go wrong with Superman.

All help appreciated!

i would strongly advise picking up grant morisson's All Star Superman (available in 2 volumes, or now i one big collected editon i think).

it is widely considered one of the best, is quite modern, features numerous villains, etc...

it is a great read, can't really go wrong with that one.
