The Golden Age of Superman tales are collected for the first time in their entirety in this oversize omnibus series, continued here in SUPERMAN: THE GOLDEN AGE OMNIBUS VOL. 5!   Following the Allies’ victory in World War II, America was on the move again by the end of 1945. With the return of millions of servicemen from Europe and the Pacific and the lifting of wartime rationing, new suburban housing began springing up across the country, and the great postwar baby boom was soon underway. On the newsstands, the adventures of Superman reflected the nation’s changing priorities. While he certainly didn’t abandon his championship of the common man (not to mention his never-ending battle for truth and justice), the world’s greatest superhero took a noticeably comedic turn in the final years of comics’ Golden Age.   Now, this pivotal period in the Man of Steel’s celebrated career—featuring such stories as “The Average American,” “Battle of the Redwoods” and “The Laughing Stock of Metropolis” and co-starring such legendary luminaries as Lois Lane, Mr. Mxyztplk, the Prankster and Lex Luthor—is finally available for the first time in a single hardcover edition.   SUPERMAN: THE GOLDEN AGE OMNIBUS VOLUME FIVE collects many stories never before collected, including all of the Metropolis Wonder’s tales from ACTION COMICS #86-105, SUPERMAN #34-43 and WORLD’S FINEST COMICS #19-25, and features a foreword by acclaimed comics writer and former DC Comics president Paul Levitz.
