Wizard magazine Superman Special (1998)


In 1998, the popular comics publication Wizard magazine released the Wizard Magazine Superman Special.  This issue is filled with Superman related stories, bios, facts, and other goodies that make it a Superman fans dream.

Included in the magazine, but not limited to, are bios of Superman, Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, Supergirl (an alternate Earth’s dead Lana Lang proto-matter being version… yep.), Superboy (Kon-El clone version), and many more; a very detailed overview of Metropolis that includes a map; a Superman Trivia Challenge section, side panels called “Didja Know?” with even more facts about the Man of Steel.  There is even an article covering the then still in pre-production Superman Lives movie with talk about the cast choices (both fact and rumor) that mention Sandra Bullock as Lois Lane, Chris Rock as Jimmy Olsen, and Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor.

The cover was drawn by the great artist Jerry Ordway.
