from the back cover of the book:
A bizarre creature from another world arrives on our planet. It survives by bleeding the memories from its victims. When Superman falls prey to it, the strange beast begins extracting hereditary memories from Superman's earliest ancestor from Krypton!
Superman's forebear, El, founder of the House of El, was a hero in his own right, leading his bedraggled people from the Wastelands to freedom! But his power, derived from the ancient god of Krypton, soon proves to be too much for him. Will the fate of Superman's ancestor influence the life of the Man of Steel?
One of the more interesting aspects of this story is the way in which it sets a precedent for something that would appear in Smallville later in 2003. Like Smallville's Clark, El here is shown to receive a mysterious mark on his chest so as to reveal his true power and show him as a man with a particular destiny.
As far as can be determined, the contents of this work never appeared in any other title, so--until additional research reveals some other conclusion--it'll be classed as an original graphic novel.
