Read full description of the books:
Published in the midst of the comics industry's gritty phase in the 80s, this one-shot story managed to retain the seriousness of it's own era while hearkening back to the lighter comics of the 50s and 60s. In case you're wondering, yes, the villains literally steal the Earth, and it's Superman's job to get it back. I usually don't go for Silver Age stuff, but seeing John Byrne and Curt Swan's names on the cover won me over. What impressed me was that it managed to capture the fun and the scope of Silver Age comics, but it balanced that with the drama and restraint of the John Byrne-era Superman. The contrast between Superman's idealism and the villain's nihilism was interesting, and was its ultimate resolution. While it can't match the brilliance of All-Star Superman, another Silver Age throwback, it's somewhat in the same vein. It might not appeal to everyone, but I think this is a really underrated comic.
