1933's 'The Reign Of The Superman' - The First Superman Story, EVER
|Holy Cow! It's SUPERMAN!|
“We saved the cover. The rest of the drawings were a crude version of Superman. It wasn't really Superman: that was before he evolved into a costumed figure. He was simply wearing a T-shirt and pants; he was more like Slam Bradley than anything else - just a man of action. But we called him The Superman. That was the second time we used the name, but the first time it was used for a character of goodwill. I'm a perfectionist, and I think the fact that the drawings had been turned down made me want to tear them up. I simply destroyed them. I said, ‘If we ever do it again, I'm going to redo it properly.’ It was a very low period for us.” – Joe Shuster
Thanks for sticking around for 1000 posts. Let's aim for another 1000, and I'll do my best to bring you the stuff that other blogs and sites don't - until they get it from here. My thanks to all of those who have read, linked, commented and emailed - it's you that I write for and it's a good feeling to know that people out there appreciate the effort. Seriously, it's my pleasure.
