Full Description

JERRY SIEGEL AND Joe Shuster, two misfit teens in Depression-era Cleveland, were a lot more like Clark Kent— meek, mild, and myopic— than his secret identity, Superman. In 1934, they developed a superhero who was anything they were not. The author contains a provocative afterword about Jerry and Joe's lengthy struggle with DC Comics once they realized they had produced a mistake in selling all rights to Superman for a mere $130! It was four a lot more years before they convinced a publisher to take a chance on their Man of Steel in a new format— the comic book. Each boys escaped into the worlds of science fiction and pulp magazine adventure tales. Jerry wrote stories, and Joe illustrated them. Marc Tyler Nobleman's text captures the excitement of Jerry and Joe's triumph, as well as the energetic illustrations by Ross Mac Donald, the author-artist of Another Perfect Day, are a perfect complement for the time, the place, and also the two young visionaries.
