9781401251529: Superman: The Power Within

When Superman saves an innocent man from being killed, he discovers two disturbing facts: 1) the man he saved is part of a cult that worships the Man of Steel, and 2) the man's would-be killer is part of another faction dedicated to wiping them out! Even worse, both groups are gaining super-powers due to a mysterious, space-born source that Superman must discover before it is too late!  Plus: When a young man gains superhuman powers, he must quickly learn to use them to protect his sister from assassins ... and to deal with a certain Man of Steel ... all in the classic three-part Sinbad Contract!

Collecting stories -- drawn by the great Curt Swan -- from ACTION COMICS WEEKLY #601-641.  Plus, SUPERMAN #48, ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #471, and ACTION COMICS #658, written by William Messner-Loebs.

From the Author :

"I'd grown up reading Superman stories drawn by Curt Swan, and a whole array of stories drawn by Murphy Anderson. What a team. I still can hardly believe that I got to work with them.
"In fact, a few weeks after he'd started working on the strip, Curt gave me a call to tell me how much he was enjoying it. He said it was just like working on a Sunday newspaper strip, which of course was the whole idea. Curt got it immediately. That wasn't too surprising. Curt always got it.
"And when Murphy joined us, that really put the icing on the cake. He also immediately got what we were doing. I'd written this ominous cliffhanger into the first strip that Murphy inked, and he later told me how much he loved it. And, having drawn the Buck Rogers newspaper strip, he knew from cliffhangers.
"So, to have Curt Swan and Murphy Anderson tell me that they liked drawing a Superman story that I was writing? That was an honor and a thrill, both at the same time. The only thing that came close was a few years later, when Jerry Siegel told me that he liked my writing.
"And Tom Peyer was a great, great help to me. Midway through the run, my schedule was getting more and more frantic. I was younger then, but even so, I was starting to run a little ragged.
"Now, I had known Tom for several years. I knew that Tom understood weekly deadlines, so I asked him to give me a hand with the strip.
"We'd go over my outline, and Tom would rough out the pacing and script for a few weeks at a time. Then, I'd make a final pass, writing a finished draft. I don't remember exactly when we started working together, but Tom was a godsend. When we were given the word that the weekly strip would be ending prematurely, Tom helped me re-pace things so we could wrap up the story in good fashion. And we'd no sooner done that, than we were told, 'Oh, you have an extra three weeks.' And we were already finished! Curt was already drawing those strips.
"I can laugh about it now, but it was maddening at the time. Fortunately, Tom came up with a great idea for a nice, tight little three-week story and we were able bring the series to a good end. But I wouldn't have been able to do it without Tom. Not unless I'd been able to give up sleeping for a few months.
"Anyway, that's the story of how Tom Peyer became my youthful protégé. (To this day, he always insists on the 'youthful' part.)" -- Roger Stern

From the Back Cover :


THE MAN OF STEEL - HERO, SAVIOR ... MONSTER?
The Last Son of Krypton has been called many things over the years, but the strangest appellation may also be the most dangerous: "god."
After Thwarting a mysterious assassination in Metropolis, Superman discovers that he has become both the object of worship for a new religion as well as a target of a murderous backlash that sees him as the Antichrist. But as Clark Kent investigates these alarming developments a disturbing presence begins to reveal itself - a threat far greater than any misguided religious devotion.
Meanwhile, after defeating the terrorist forces of Qurac, Superman faces an unexpected challenge from Quraci expatriates who have made Metropolis their home - resulting in an ugly spectacle of manipulation and prejudice masterminded by a vengeance-obsessed Lex Luthor.
Caught in the crossfire between faith and fanaticism, technology and terror, Superman musty take a stand. But in a world where the line between villain and victim is blurred, whose side will he choose?
Two of the definitive artists on the Man of Steel - comics legends CURT SWAN and MURPHY ANDERSON - join forces with writers ROGER STERN and WILLIAM MESSNER-LOEBS for SUPERMAN: THE POWER WITHIN, collecting the team's ACTION COMICS WEEKLY stories from issues #601-641 together with "The Sinbad Contract" from SUPERMAN #48, THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #471, and ACTION COMICS #658.
