Episode #3 Part I: Honoring Jerry Siegel: His 1960's Superman Stories!

Download Episode #3 Part 1!

This week is a sad anniversary in Superman history. The writer and co-creator of Superman, Jerry Siegel, died on January 28, 1996, at the age of 81, in his California home. After sharing a brief update on my son's leaving for Marine Corps boot camp, I feature Siegel and Shuster's pre-Superman creations for the companies that would become DC Comics as we know it. Then I look at Jerry Siegel's other super hero creations that he did with other artists for DC. Next, I review Jerry's post Superman comic book career, and his return to DC Comics in the 1960's and why. Finally, I review some developments in the continuing legal battle between the Siegel and Shuster hiers and DC over Superman's copyright, and a separate lawsuit over Superboy.
