I tend to collect a lot of things involving Superman. These posts are the newest additions to that collection.
Today I came home, checked the mail and found a small package that once I got through the wrapping contained this.
This was a book that I barely knew existed and only got interested in tracking it down because they showed Superman Returns co-writer Michael Dougherty reading this on the plane ride to Australia in that exhaustive making of documentary that could be found in both the two-disc special edition release of the film and the 14 disc set that I just
had happen to possess. I re-watched the documentary recently, saw the book, hit my best friend eBay and lo and behold there it was. I ended up paying $20 all told but that was with shipping and I really wanted to own it.
So that’s awesome.
Here’s the back cover.
I look forward to reading this. Don’t know how soon I’ll get to it because I have a back log of reading right now, but I think it will be enjoyable. I’m a bit concerned actually because despite this book being in pretty good shape I am paranoid that once I open it for the first time the thing will either snap in half or crumble to dust in my hands like it just drank from the Holy Grail or something.
I let you know how it goes.
