THE REIGN OF THE SUPER-MAN
VOL.1 - LIGHT VERSION
DIGITAL LIGHT VERSION WITH FLUID CONTENTS!
High quality reprint of “the Reign of the Super-man,” the very first “superman” story by Gerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
Not a comic book, but a short novel in the style of the pulps, it tells the story of Bill Dunn, a down-of-his-luck man who acquires superpowers through a radical experiment.
The story has all the main elements of the superman myth: a bald super-villain, an unknown element coming from space that mutates human beings, telescopic-vision, aliens, and an indomitable quest for absolute power.
It was originally published on Science Fiction – The Advance Guard of Future Civilization #3 (Jan. 1933), one of the very first fanzine to be created, which Siegel and Shuster developed with a typewriter and mimeographic machine for printing.
Also collected for the first time: “Goober the Mighty”, Siegel’s Tarzan parody, Stiletto Vance the vain detective, and other raw gems the creators of Superman developed for the Torch, the High School newspaper they worked for.
Fully restored images for high-quality digital enjoyment.
Original introduction dedicated to the concept of the "super-man" and a biography of Siegel and Shuster in their very early years.
