Summary
Larry Tye chronicles the adventures of the men and women who kept Siegel and Shuster's "Man of tomorrow" aloft and vitally alive through seven decades and counting. Here are the savvy publishers and visionary writers and artists of comics' Golden Age who ushered the red-and-blue-clad titan through changing eras and evolving incarnations; and the actors, including George Reeves and Christopher Reeve, who brought the Man of Steel to life on screen
Summary
Nerdy teenagers Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster labored to create a hero who could be everything they were not: Superman, now the lantern-jawed darling of comics, TV, movies, radio, and the stage. But in 1938 -- after years of false starts and rejections -- they sold him Action Comics for a mere $130, so Superman's rightful creators lost all rights (and subsequent profits) from him. This wide-ranging history neatly captures the appeal of the Man of Steel, as it describes the artists, writers, and others who influenced Superman's traits to make him a pop culture avatar of society's changing norms over the decades. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
