He is the world's most iconic superhero.
It's been said that his "S" logo and the Christian Cross are the two most recognizable symbols on the planet.
To the people of Earth, he is hope personified.

His name is Superman, and for over 75 years he has been entertaining comic book readers, television viewers and filmgoers around the world in a wide variety of incarnations that have touched one generation after another. Designed to celebrate all of that and more, Voices From Krypton: The Unofficial Adventures of Superman on Film & in Comics is the first in a series of volumes that goes behind the scenes on the Man of Steel's saga. This inaugural edition includes in depth coverage of the Superman: Birthright comic book maxi-series from acclaimed writer Mark Waid; the 10-year saga of the Smallville TV series that chronicled teenager Clark Kent's gradual evolution to his final destination as Superman; and Man of Steel, the feature film in which Henry Cavill defined the character for today's audience.

For anyone who has read a Superman comic, watched one of his film or TV adventures or tied a towel around their neck and imagined what it would be like to fly, Voices From Krypton is for you.
