Superman: The Greatest Pulp Hero

Out here in McHenry County, Illinois the air is buzzing with news of the new Superman movie they’re filming in the nearby town of Plano (substituting as Smallville.) Hollywood seems to rediscover Superman every decade. Comic Book characters are hot in Hollywood right now, which is all well and good. This American cultural icon was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. Superman made his debut in Action Comics # 1 in 1938. The rest is history. Here are some classic covers from my collection for your visual delight. I got a kick out of the Beatles references on the cover of the two Jimmy Olsens. Enjoy!
