Comics Review : DC Comics : Superman: Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow? (1985-1986)

Hello DC Comics Fans , Here is my review of Superman: Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow? I will be reviewing the trade paperback from 2010. 1st a description of these stories : An unforgettable collection of writer Alan Moore’s definitive Superman tales. Moore teams with Curt Swan, the definitive Superman artist from the 1950’s through the 1970’s, to tell the final adventure of the Man of Steel featuring his last stand against Lex Luthor, Brainiac and his other foes in “WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE MAN OF TOMORROW?”. Now on to my review of these stories , Superman: Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow? is written by Alan Moore with artwork by Curt Swan and collects the final stories of The Pre Crisis Superman from 1985-1986. These stories are just so good and have so much emotional depth to them and you feel for this Superman from Earth 1 going away and seeing a future version of Supergirl was very interesting to see. My favorite story from this collection though is For The Man Who Has Everything from Superman Annual #11 now in this story Superman is infected by the Black Mercy and dreams he is back on Krypton now Supergirl TV Series fans will know this because in Supergirl Season One Kara was infected by The Black Mercy and dreams she is back on Krypton. These stories are so good and some of the best ever told in comics. Overall I give of Superman: Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow? a 8/10 a good collection of Superman stories and a nice send off for The Earth One Man of Steel. Up Up and Away!!!
