Classic Comic Review #2: Superman VS. Muhammad Ali

Why am I reviewing older comics?

Well because I’m still sorta new at this and I’m trying to catch up on reading the ones that I wasn’t able to read growing up.  Also there are many people out there who are either new to comics or are seasoned pros who may want to revisit some of the older stuff. To tell you the truth, these comics never get old. Besides, there are so many people out there who are reviewing the new comics. So without further ado, I give you this week’s Classic Comic Review…

Superman VS. Muhammad Ali

Publisher: DC Comics 1978

Writers:  Original Story Dennis O’Neil Adapted by Neal Adams

Pencils: Neal Adams

Inks: Figure Inks by Dick Giordano Background Inks by Terry Austin

The man of steel versus the greatest. This was an epic matchup and a epic book. I want to thank my co-worker  (who’s also a librarian) Mike Schau for putting this book in my hand and telling me, “You must read this.”

The 72-page oversized book features Superman teaming up with the heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali to defeat an alien invasion of Earth. Superman vs. Muhammad Ali’s wraparound cover shows a host of late 1970s celebrities, including Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball, Tony Orlando, Johnny Carson, Ron Palillo, the cast of Welcome Back, Kotter, and The Jackson 5; sharing close-up seating with Wonder Woman, Batman, Green Lantern, and other DC superheroes; as well as Warner and DC employees.

This was an excellent read and since there’s two editions (reissued in 2010)-one edition reprinted the original story at its original treasury size, while a deluxe edition (featuring a new cover by Neal Adams) included additional content dating back to the original book’s publication-now available, you have no excuse to read it!

If you have any classic comics that you want me to review please email me at Remember comics must have been published before 2010.  There will be more reviews to come! Next week will be Avenger week in honor of the film being released so stay tuned!
