Superman: From Krypton to Metropolis, Part 1!

A bit of a treat here for those of you who didn't catch this last summer on Random Acts of Geekery... this will be serialized here over a five-day period.

As you can see, this children's book has a pretty good pedigree, being written by E. Nelson Bridwell, with art by Ross Andru, Adrian Gonzales, Mike DeCarlo, and Gene D'Angelo! This book was published in 1982 as part of a four-volume library of books with cassettes by Fisher-Price, with the other volumes covering Batman, Wonder Woman, and the JLA. Back in January, I placed a bid on a complete set of these, but was way outbid right at the end of the auction, so I still have just this volume!

With Baby Kal-El's departure from Krypton, we'll leave it off here, and pick it up with the rocket's arrival in Smallville!
