“Boys of Steel” 75th-anniversary-of-Superman paperback edition is out

Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman came out in hardcover in 2008, and is still reprinted in that format. When, several years ago, I first suggested putting out a special 75th-anniversary-of-Superman edition in 2013, I was envisioning it in hardcover as well.

Random House agreed to the anniversary edition but in paperback; it sports not only the celebratory banner but also a few corrections.

My author copies arrived 5/24/13, AKA a week before June, which marks the cover date of Action Comics #1 (1938) and the release of the latest screen iteration of Superman, Man of Steel, not to mention my friend Brad Ricca’s exhaustively researched book Super Boys.

The summer of Superman is in full force...again.
