It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s Siegel and Shuster!
Celebrate Superman’s 70th anniversary in 2008 with the first-ever picture book about the two Cleveland teenagers who created him during the Great Depression.
Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster were more like Clark Kent than his secret identity. Meek, mild, and myopic, they spent their high school years escaping into fictional worlds of adventure with heroes inluding Flash Gordon and Tarzan. They also made up their own stories—Jerry wrote, Joe illustrated. Then, late on summer night, Jerry had the idea for a hero who was everything they were not...and unlike any the world had ever known...
Boys of Steel is the meticulously researched story behind the first and greatest superhero of all time.
