Exploring the old, Silver Age stories about Krypton in fun and exciting way. I couldn't believe some of the funny, yet fantastic, mythos that used to exist about Superman's homeworld. I enjoyed it greatly and actually sent this copy to a friend.
This mass-market paperback collects the three-issue _World of Krypton_ limited series from 1979. It basically offers an origin story for Jor-El, the father of Superman. It does seem a bit mired in past continuity for some sections (for example we don't really learn how Superman travelled to Krypton and worked for a time as his father's research assistant), but other bits of trivia are integrated more fluidly. The story is by Paul Kupperberg and illustrated--though we only see the black and white art here--by Howard Chaykin, Murphy Anderson, and Frank Chiaramonte. This edition also includes an introduction by E. Nelson Bridwell, who served as editor on the original series.
