All New Collector's Edition v1 #C-58 / Superman vs. Muhammad Ali, 1978 - The fate of the galaxy depends on the Man of Steel and the charismatic boxing legend, forced to fight by a race of alien conquerers. Over seventy pages of breathtaking drawings fill oversized issue, including three double page spreads and four full page splashes. Adams depicts Muhammad Ali perfectly, reinforcing the story's larger-than-life realism. His varied, yet brilliant scenes include an inner city neighborhood and the interiors of an intergalactic spaceship. The wrap-around cover layout is based on an earlier sketch by Joe Kubert. The audience is comprised of mostly famous people of that era, including President Jimmy Carter, Cher, Lucille Ball and many others. Beautifully paced, composed and drawn, this issue is arguably "The Greatest" of Adams' comic book works.
