The Superman strips, which feature the work of classic creators including Jerry Siegel, Joe Shuster, Curt Swan and Wayne Boring, will be compiled by era, with volumes spanning Silver Age, the Atomic Age and the Golden Age.

"It's like discovering an entire alternate universe of famous Silver Age comic book stories," said editor Dean Mullaney.

"It's better than an imaginary story - it's Jerry Siegel doing a remake of his classic 'Superman's Return to Krypton'... It's Curt Swan, not Al Plastino, drawing 'The Menace of Metallo'. Superman fans might want to consider these strips as taking place on a brand-new world - Earth-N for Newspapers."

The Superman collections will kick off with Superman: The Silver Age Newspaper Dailies - Vol. 1: 1958-1961 in July.

Full details of the Batman and Wonder Woman collections is expected to be released soon.
