As part of the 60th-anniversary of DC Comics, Paul Dini and Alex Ross brought the tabloid format back to the industry in a series of specials.
In addition to the seasonal lead-in “Peace on Earth,” Dini and Ross crafted Batman: War on Crime, Shazam: Power of Hope and Wonder Woman: Spirit of Truth.
The book was released in time for the 1999 Christmas season. Superman is overcome by the season and attempts to solve the world hunger problem. He is met with distrust and disdain. Superman learns the humbling lesson that while super, he is also only a man.
The sparse prose is complimented by lavish brush strokes. Peace on Earth was the 1999 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards winner: Best Graphic Album – new.
