Set Description:

"And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man like him..." Crash Test Dummies - Superman's Song

I have been a Superman fan since childhood. I remember walking to the drug store and picking up the new Treasury size books as they came out. I technically “grew out” of comic books and joined the USMC at 18. In 1992 my mom, I think as a gag, sent me The Death of Superman TPB for Christmas. I read through it and was blown away when flipping to the last page and seeing Superman dead, and Lois crying. I suddenly realized what Superman had meant to me all those years, my childhood came rushing back and I felt I needed to know more, much like someone may feel the need to trace their own roots. Needless to say, I was hooked and decided I needed the individual books from that TPB. I eventually gathered them all up and joined in collecting weekly as the Funeral for a Friend and Reign of the Superman stories were told. I also started collecting cards and remember getting the Bloodlines ‘One True Superman’ card in the mail… what fun times! I have collected Superman memorabilia (not so much new comics) since then and am particularly grateful that my Wife supports my collecting. I ended up spending 30 years in the Marine Corps which made collecting challenging, at one point I did not see my collection for four years because I was overseas and didn't feel comfortable taking it where I was going. Some of these books, and my other collectibles, ended up being stored for a total of 10 years until I finally settled down. Many sleepless nights thinking about these items being stored 1952 miles away while in the States, not to mention the distance while on completely different continents. So happy to finally have everything under one roof!

I had all of the first prints of this set and remember snubbing my nose at the later prints when seeing them back then… if I only knew then what I know now I would have snagged every collector pack I laid my eyes on! I am trying to complete this set in 9.8 and prefer non signature series books for this set. If there are any CGC SS books in this set it's because I couldn't find a Universal Label at the time.

When presenting this set I decided to place a quote first in each description that I felt either the cover, or story inside that book, could have inspired. I hope you enjoy!
