Boys Of Steel: The Creators Of Superman : Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, two misfit teens in Depression-era Cleveland, were more like Clark Kent - meek, mild, and myopic - than his secret identity, Superman. Both boys escaped into the worlds of science fiction and pulp magazine adventure tales. Jerry wrote stories, and Joe illustrated them. In 1934, they created a superhero who was everything they were not. It was four more years before they convinced a publisher to take a chance on their Man of Steel in a new format - the comic book. The author includes a provocative afterword about Jerry and Joeâs long struggle with DC Comics when they realized they had made a mistake in selling all rights to Superman for a mere $130!
