About the Author

Born in England and raised in Canada, John Byrne discovered superheroes through The Adventures of Superman on television. After studying at the Alberta College of Art and Design, he broke into comics first with Skywald and then at Charlton, where he created the character Rog-2000. Following his tenure at Charlton, Byrne moved to Marvel, where his acclaimed runs on The Uncanny X-Men and The Fantastic Four soon made him one of the most popular artists in the industry. In 1986 he came to DC to revamp Superman from the ground up, and since then he has gone on to draw and/or write every major character at both DC and Marvel. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

John Lindley Byrne (born July 6, 1950) is a British-born American comic-book writer and artist. Since the mid-1970s, Byrne has worked on many major American superheroes. Byrne's better-known work has been on Marvel Comics’ X-Men and Fantastic Four and the 1986 relaunch of DC Comics’ Superman franchise, the first issue of which featured comics' first variant cover. Coming into the comics profession exclusively as a penciler, Byrne began co-plotting the X-Men comics during his tenure on them, and launched his writing career in earnest with Fantastic Four (where he started inking his own pencils). During the 1990s he produced a number of creator-owned works, including Next Men and Danger Unlimited. He scripted the first issues of Mike Mignola's Hellboy series and produced a number of Star Trek comics for IDW Publishing. In 2015, Byrne and his longtime X-Men collaborator Chris Claremont were inducted into the comic book hall of fame.

5.0 out of 5 stars Volume 2 is another nice addition to the collection. And has a nicer (hard) cover than I expected.
Reviewed in the United States on January 27, 2021
Was expecting the cover in the ad but it actually came with a nicer and more colorful cover. The front and back of the flap both have really nice pics, but under the flap the actual hardcover itself has cool images too that are different than the book jacket.
Haven't read the book since I just got it but I flipped through it. It looks nice and the colors look vibrant and not dull. The quality of the book seems solid too, like the Vol 1 hardcover and it looks good lined up with Vol 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Man Of Steel Indeed!
Reviewed in the United States on January 8, 2022
I collected the whole run of this series in individual comics back in 1986. DC had managed to woo premier Marvel Comics artist John Byrne over to DC to reboot/revitalize their flagship character. The story arc contained in this collected edition includes the Legion Of Superheroes and those connecting issues of that series have grown in value and were hard to find. I always wanted those issues to complete my collection so I jumped at the chance to get this book which contains them. The story and John Byrne art doesn't disappoint and these collected volumes are a great way to get those hard to find and expensive issues for a better price and in a format you can keep and read for years to come!

Superman Man Of Steel Volume 2.
Really enjoying this book so far (page 129 of 544). Stories continue to be told in sequential order which is great. References / recaps to stories presented in Volume 1 - you don’t have to read volume 1 first, but I’m new to this run and I’m glad I did.
Unfortunately there’s been a couple of pages with minor printing errors (see shadow effect in photos) the result is that the text and the artwork is not as clear / sharp as it should be on those pages and it is distracting and disappointing. I’ve encountered 3 pages in the 129 I’ve read so far.
No problems with Volume 1 that I can recall.
I can overlook these errors because the text is still readable and the book is enjoyable but it is worth mentioning as you do notice it when turning from a clean page to a “shadow” page and it’s not ideal for tired eyes.
If this gets an absolute treatment I’ll be upgrading for sure but these little hardcovers are easy to hold and read.
