Look! Down on the Ground!It's a Bag. It's some Trash.It's...It's...What IS that?...In 1997, a young law firm assistant--Lauren Agostino--literally stumbled on a secret cache from Superman's creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. These original documents, private correspondence, legal papers, and artwork expose the muted and maligned history of the relationships and dynamics of the early Superman family.The origin of Superman and the downfall of its creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster is a dramatic saga that underscores one of America's most popular cultural icons. For the first time, Agostino and writer A.L. Newberg reveal the extraordinary true story of the Man of Steel's rise from a creative concept (sold for the infamous $130) to the 1947 lawsuit that nearly denied Siegel and Shuster of any future with their Man of Tomorrow.Stripped away the lies, myths and cover-ups this is a treasure trove for Superman fans and historians alike.

After debuting in 1938, Superman soon became an American icon. But why has he maintained his iconic status for nearly 80 years? And how can he still be an American icon when the country itself has undergone so much change? Superman: Persistence of an American Icon examines the many iterations of the character in comic books, comic strips, radio series, movie serials, feature films, television shows, animation, toys, and collectibles over the past eight decades. Demonstrating how Superman’s iconic popularity cannot be attributed to any single creator or text, comics expert Ian Gordon embarks on a deeper consideration of cultural mythmaking as a collective and dynamic process. He also outlines the often contentious relationships between the various parties who have contributed to the Superman mythos, including corporate executives, comics writers, artists, nostalgic commentators, and collectors. Armed with an encyclopedic knowledge of Superman’s appearances in comics and other media, Gordon also digs into comics archives to reveal the prominent role that fans have played in remembering, interpreting, and reimagining Superman’s iconography. Gordon considers how comics, film, and TV producers have taken advantage of fan engagement and nostalgia when selling Superman products. Investigating a character who is equally an icon of American culture, fan culture, and consumer culture, Superman thus offers a provocative analysis of mythmaking in the modern era.

Jerry Siegel e Joe Shuster erano due ragazzini, quando inventarono Superman e lo vendettero, incautamente, per centotrenta dollari all’editore che lo avrebbe reso famoso in tutto il mondo. Questo libro, meticolosamente documentato da Julian Voloj e dipinto con amore infinito da Thomas Campi,racconta la storia dei due giovani di Cleveland e della loro ordalia durata fino al 1975, anno in cui fu ufficialmente riconosciuta loro la paternità del supereroe più famoso di tutti i tempi, di cui nell’aprile 2018 si è festeggiato l’ottantesimo compleanno. Un libro vero, doloroso, fondamentale per conoscere e capire una delle più importanti battaglie per il diritto d’autore mai condotte, ma anche un premuroso, dovuto atto d’amore per un personaggio all’ombra del cui mantello siamo cresciuti tutti, che ce ne rendiamo conto o no.

Hollywood’s live-action superhero films currently dominate the worldwide box-office, with the characters enjoying more notoriety through their feature film and television depictions than they have ever before. This book argues that this immense popularity reveals deep cultural concerns about politics, gender, ethnicity, patriotism and consumerism after the events of 9/11. Superheroes have long been agents of hegemony, fighting for abstract ideals of justice while overall perpetuating the American status quo. Yet at the same time, the book explores how the genre has also been utilized to question and critique these dominant cultural assumptions.
