    1. In 1938, the first adventure of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster’s creation Superman saw print.And made us all believe a man could leap tall buildings in a single bound.With the celebrations and festivities filling the Geek world this year for the 75th birthday of Superman, I decided some time ago to finally read my accumulation of Golden Age volumes featuring the Man Of Steel. A journey to the beginning of it all, just to get a feel for the unknown decades to come.Starting with The Superman Chron [...]


    2. Early Superman is much more interesting than what we have now. The art may be "primitive" to some, but it packs a wallop. And Shuster drew a very pretty Lois Lane.


    3. The Superman of 1938 isn't the same Superman we see today. He was faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound which isn't the same as being able to fly, or burn things up with his eyes, or go back in time. Basically, he was Hercules, not a god. And that created a different kind of dramatic potential, because he was tough rather than invulnerable. (At one point, he gets knocked out. It's by an artillery shell, true, but it nonethel [...]


    4. This initial volume in the DC Archives series covers some of the most important comics in history: The first appearances of Superman in his own title. Many of the stories initially appeared in Action Comics, starting with issue #1, but you won't really mind. This is some pioneering comic book reading, featuring the first popular caped super-hero. And you can't really go wrong with the Man of Steel unless you're modern DC Comics and their horrid New 52 crap, of course. That ain't Superman. And t [...]


    5. I've had this sitting on my shelf for some time now, and I only recently got around to reading it in its entirety. Part of what motivated me is Grant Morrison's upcoming new take on The Man of Steel, which supposedly will hearken back to the character's original concept.Anyway, it's dated and the artwork isn't on a par with what some of the comic strip illustrators were doing at the time. (Keep in mind that Siegel and Shuster's strip was rejected by the newspapers before finally seeing print in [...]


    6. This archive edition collects the first four issues of the quarterly Superman comic from 1939 - 1940. Simultaneously Superman was appearing in Action Comics on a monthly basis. These were all written and drawn by the creative team of Siegel and Shuster who created Superman. Of note, Superman was initially able to perform many of the skills he later had but to a much lesser extent. He also seemed to have no qualms about killing criminals. He often had a lesson to give to youngsters about how to b [...]


    7. The perfect description of this story would be an ADHD fly high on cocaine- constantly bouncing from one idea to the next with very little segues in between. It almost gets painful to read, with how quickly characters, stories, and ideas are brought up then thrown away. But I would be lying if there was no intensity in some of the stories, like where Superman pretends to be a football player. While the ideas are very dumb, there is a certain gumption you feel to see the story true to the end. Ho [...]


    8. Interesting to see these issues from 1938-39. Superman 1-4, all 64 page issues, some at least are reprints of the original Action Comics stories. Includes some non-Superman text stories and a couple of side comics, plus ads and small pictures of the inside front, inside back, and back covers. Quality of the stories and art is variable as Jerry and Joe figure out their hero. Superman may be the champion of the helpless and oppressed, but he's also violent, destructive, and vindictive. Lois Lane i [...]


    9. So these are the tales of the Man of Tomorrow, written by its original creator? Long before Geoff Johns, before Jeph Loeb, Alan Moore, Curt Swann, etc, etc. Jerry Siegel had created a classic that continues to shine brighter than a star.Obviously there are difference from yesterday and today and one can't still fall in love with those differences. The stories are more wholesome, but a bit naive. I have to admit its weird seeing Superman trick a criminal. The short stories and the funny pages are [...]


    10. Read this for the Man of Steel movie. Man, Superman is an asshole! I need to update my blog about this so I can add a few images. They're great! Can't go wrong on the kitsch factor. Of course it all looks dated now but I can definitely see why this would be awesome back when it came out. It's exciting - action on almost every panel - and the storylines are unique. You can tell they were experimenting with art style, though they didn't pay a lot of attention to keeping things consistent. They wer [...]


    11. An enjoyable glimpse at the first incarnation of Superman. In these stories he can only leap over tall buildings and faster than an express train, but he is already pretty much unstoppable. I liked the "period" flavor of the stories are standard pulp fiction of the time, and also the old ads and promotions that are also included in the volume. The plots themselves are pretty weak, and the art is simplistic. But for fans of Superman, it merits a look.



    12. This is totally good, clean fun. I love seeing how the character began and consequently his evolution through the years. I'm a Superman geek so this was a fun discovery at the library for me!
