A series of massive Trade paperback collections in DC's inexpensive Showcase format that reprint stories featuring the birth of the Silver Age Superman mythos starting with Action #241 from 1958.
Showcase Presents is a line of black-and-white paperback books published by DC Comics. Much like Marvel Comics' Essential Marvel volumes, each book usually includes over 500 pages of reprints, primarily from the Silver Age and is usually devoted to one character, reprinting all of their adventures in sequential order via cover date, or occasionally to a specific title rather than individual. The reprint line started in October 2005 with the releases of Showcase Presents: Green Lantern Volume 1 and Showcase Presents: Superman Volume 1.
The full list of collected editions is:
Volume 1 (Action Comics #241-257, Superman #122-133)
Volume 2 (Action Comics #258-275, Superman #134-145)
Volume 3 (Action Comics #279-292, Superman #146-156, Superman Annual #1)
Volume 4 (Action Comics #293-310, Superman #157-166)
