Notes

  • The collection was withdrawn and pulped after Paul Levitz became concerned about a scene in the Letitia Lerner story. The scene in question involves a young baby (Superman) trapped in a microwave. The story was later reprinted in Bizarro Comics. It also won Kyle Baker two Eisner Awards, in Best Short Story and Best/Writer Artist.
  • The story from the 2005 Pixar short "Jack-Jack Attack" was heavily inspired by "Letitia Lerner, Superman's Babysitter".
  • The Super-Sons story was republished in Batman/Superman: Saga of the Super Sons.
