Ten of Our All-Time Favorite Book Covers » Tom de Haven — It’s Superman! (Designed by Chris Ware)

Cover for Tom de Haven — It’s Superman! (Designed by Chris Ware)

Leaping tall buildings in a single bound has never been depicted more elegantly. This book takes a different perspective on the early days of Superman. Think Smallville but set in the 1930s. Instead of just mimicking the covers of those old ‘30s comics, designer Chris War, appropriately, takes a different perspective, giving us a worm’s eye view of Superman’s flight path and slapping the title where you might expect a whooooosh! sound effect to go.
