Look at this cover:



It's the new Superman Italian Guide, printed yesterday.
It features...

- Superman's complete history until 2003.
- Authors' bios.
- Characters' bios.
- An interview with John Byrne.
- Complete history of Italian editions.

And I'm its author.

It's a great moment to me, so I hope that  this topic isn't a problem for you (someone could consider it a commercial advertisement).

In Italy Superman is regularly published since 1954, but there aren't so many guides for readers, so I'm very proud of my work!

(Note: Actually, this is a wrong cover: the real title is "65 anni pił veloci di un proiettile", not "pił veloce"; it means "65 years faster than a speeding bullet". Obviously, the book has been printed with the right cover!).

(2nd note: the Italian publisher of DC Comics, Play PRess Publishing, is now presenting the stories released in 2003, so I decided to conclude the part about Superman's history with SUPERMAN 200 or Italian readers could find too many spoilers).

Saturday I have presented my book in two comic shops.
Talkin' about pre-Crisis Superman to an audience and signing copies of my book has been really great.
I'll never forget these moments!

Is this book going to see an English printing?  I'd be interested in getting a copy, as I'm sure others here would.  

I don't speak or read Italian, or I'd go after a copy now!  Wink

It would be great, but the book will not be translated. Sorry!
Is there in the US any handbook about Superman?

I know only the one written by Beatty a few years ago (there is an Italian  edition, too).

Well, there is Supermanica!  Cheesy

Actually there are a few, but I've heard that they aren't very complete and they don't show Siegel and Shuster in a positive light.
