Picking up where SUPERMAN: THE DAILIES VOL. 1 left off, this black and white collection reprints the original Superman daily strips from 1940 - 1941. Written and illustrated by the Man of Steel creators, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, these strips show a growing sophistication as the two men begin to employ a greater reliance on plot and characterization. Still full of Superman's feats of strength and bravado, these stories also feature resolutions which relied on strength of character and non-violent actions. Presented in a horizontal format this book introduces Superman's adoption of a moral code that prevented him from killing anyone as well as the first appearance of his arch-enemy, Lex Luthor.
