Review: Superman vs. Mongul

Superman vs. Mongul
Superman vs. Mongul by Len Wein
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Excellent reprint volume featuring nearly all of Superman’s battles with Jim Starlin’s Mongul, basically a DC-fied version of Thanos (not that DC needed one with Darkseid, of course). Great artwork by Starlin, Curt Swan, and Dave Gibbons, with some great stories by Len Wein and Alan Moore.

My one complaint is that the book doesn’t reprint the final story in the initial Warworld arc from DC Comics Presents, which didn’t have Mongul in it, but let readers know what happened to Supergirl after she helped stop the giant killing planetoid.

Otherwise, this is a fun read for eighties’ DC fans.
