Everyone knows Superman’s major weakness: Kryptonite. But what happens when that’s taken off the board, as a scientific experiment turns all the kryptonite on Earth to iron? Originally published in 1971, this story turned the Man of Steel’s status quo on its head. When all Kryptonite has been destroyed, the Man of Steel is anything but invulnerable as his powers slowly begin to fade and a doppelgänger Superman arrives on the scene with strange powers of its own-and any contact between the two might result in the destruction of the planet! Collects Superman #233-238 and #240-242, all newly restored and recolored for this special edition more

    Flickering Myth - Ricky Church Feb 19, 2021

    In terms of additional content, Kryptonite Nevermore collects all of Neal Adams' covers for this story as well as an introduction from former DC president Paul Levitz and, as mentioned, an fairly lengthy afterward from O'Neil on the creation and significance of the story. It is very interesting to hear directly from O'Neil why and how he came up with the story and worked alongside Swan and DC to craft it. All in all, through O'Neil's story and Swan's artwork,Superman: Kryptonite Nevermoreis a very fine addition to the collections of Superman fans old and new. Read Full Review

    $40 is kind of steep for less than 200 pages of Bronze Age reprints -- though the stories aren't retouched or recolored, which is a good thing, because you can experience them the way they originally looked, unfiltered, not traced by digital hands -- but this is one of the most satisfying single volumes of Superman reprints available. Superman is a great character, maybe the greatest character, but he doesn't have a whole lot of single volume collections that work as a self-contained, satisfying whole beyond "All-Star Superman" volumes 1 and 2. This, though, is an exception. A good one. Read Full Review
