Engaging one-on-one interviews with Swan family members as well as comics legend associates like Joe Kubert, Carmine Infantino, Murphy Anderson, and dozens more paint a portrait of the man as elegant as the artist's own work. Includes never-before-published Superman art and sketches. Features interviews with notable comics professionals as Julius Schwartz, Carmine Infantino, Alan Moore, Dan Jurgens, and more. Long-time Swan associates Julie Schwartz and Murphy Anderson signed the deluxe hardcover, which comes with a 16-page bonus portfolio/checklist!
