Written by Steven T. Seagle; Art and Cover by Teddy Kristiansen

A softcover edition of the acclaimed VERTIGO hardcover that tells one of the most realistic Superman tales ever - without featuring Superman. Steve's given the dream assignment to write Superman, only he can't relate to a Man of Steel when his own fears of death haunt him. Explore the cultural significance of a comic-book icon as Steve comes to terms with Superman's cultural importance.
