Jewish Values: Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman

Number of Pages: 
0 p.
Note: 
Energetic illustrations in flat, comic book colors join a peppy text to tell the tale of two nerdy boys from Cleveland, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, who combined their writing and drawing talents to create the greatest comic book hero of all time - Superman. Lousy at sports, shy around girls, and not at all popular at Glenville High School, the two boys made Superman everything that they were not. Siegel and Shuster sold the rights to Superman for $130 and an Afterword tells of the continuing legal battle by their heirs to win them the recognition they deserve. That the boys of steel were Jewish is only mentioned in the Afterword, which, unlike the story, is written on an adult level.
