Boys of Steel The Creators of Superman HC (2008) comic books
1st printing. Written by Marc Tyler Nobleman. Art by Ross MacDonald. Celebrating Superman's 70th Anniversary! 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, and in 1934, created a superhero who was everything they were not - Superman! 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! Boys of Steel is the first-ever picture book about how these two unsung heroes created the first and greatest superhero of all time! Hardcover, 9-in. x 10 1/2-in., 36 pages, full color. Cover price $16.99.
