"Decades from now, Superman is still the greatest hero of Metropolis, a member of the Justice Leagud and the impervious Man of Steel... but nothing else is the same. Most of the people and places that Clark Kent loved are gone, and as the Metropolis Police Department rolls out a new squad of nanotech-powered Super Cops, it begins to look like Superman might not even be needed anymore. For the first time, the Man of Tomorrow feels like a relic of the past. But another vestige of Metropolis's history is about to make a comeback. Lex Luthor is long dead, but even the grave can't contain his hatred for Superman. Before his death, Lex hatched a plan to finally accomplish what he couldn't in life: the destruction of the Man of Steel. And if all of Earth should be destroyed in the process, it hardly matters. Can Superman defeat Luthor one last time? It will take all of his strength and resources...as well as the help of one very old friend." --p.[4] of cover

The silver age of DC Comics, 1956-1970 by Paul Levitz( Book )
7 editions published in 2013 in 3 languages and held by 141 libraries worldwide
"With super heroes nearly extinct at the start of the 1950s, DC Comics reignited the fire that would make them central to modern popular culture by infusing them with science fiction elements. To circumvent the limitations of the self-censoring Comics Code Authority, DC's writers and editors spun ever-more fantastic tales, bringing super heroes and Bob Hope alike into the realm of sci-fi. The results were transformative, delivering the first-ever 'reboot' of Golden Age greats with the Flash, Green Lantern, and Hawkman as well as the hit TV show 'Batman.' 'The Silver Age of DC Comics' chronicles it all, right down to the wacky shenanigans of television's Batman, which made him the embodiment for the camp sensibility of the '60s and further immortalized the Dark Knight as a pop culture icon for generations to come."--Front flap

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 134 libraries worldwide
Will Eisner (1917-2005) is universally considered the master of comics storytelling and is best known for his iconic comic strip The Spirit and for his seminal work A Contract With God. Considered the first significant graphic novel, upon publication in 1978 it ushered in a new kind of personal, non-super-hero genre of comics storytelling. Since then, Eisner went on to write and illustrate over twenty award-winning graphic novels. 'Will Eisner: Champion of the graphic novel' by noted historian Paul Levitz celebrates Eisner by including not only unpublished and rare art, photographs, letters and sketches from the archives, but original interviews with creators such as Jules Feiffer, Art Spiegelman, Scott McCloud, Jeff Smith and Neil Gaiman, all of whom knew and were inspired by Eisner and have offered their support to help publicise this long-awaited tribute to a comics legend
