In my opinion, the best of the Masterpiece Editions because of the statue is, frankly, one of the best pieces of Superman art you'll ever find: a tribute to Shuster's original Superman artwork rendered by comics master Alex Ross (of Kingdom Come fame) and painted by Chris Ware (creator of the cult classic Acme Novelty Library). The statue is a tasteful piece of Americana that will likely find a home atop your local version of the Daily Planet (e.g., a CD tower or bookcase)."
From the publisher:
This spectacular ode to the Golden Age Superman contains an exclusive eight-inch statue of Superman circa 1938, a faithful color reproduction of the very first Superman comic book, and a gorgeously-illustrated hardcover book recollecting the Man of Steel's humble origins and early history. This is the ultimate collector's package for the world's first and greatest super hero!
The statue was designed by Alex Ross, sculpted by Joe DeVito, and colored by Chris Ware.
The book is an abridged version of Les Daniels' Superman: The Complete History.
The comic book is a facsimile reprint of Superman #1.
