Nemo number 2: the Many Incarnations of Superman

Day 2 of Nemo #2 and continuing from the article on Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and their creation Superman.

If you downloaded the pages post yesterday from the Siegel and Shuster interview, you may have noted pages 10 and 11 were missing, here they are in all their shrunken down poorly reproduced glory...

...and I've taken the liberty of offering these easier-to-read alternatives which I scanned from "Superman: the Dailies" 1939-1940 jointly published by Kitchen Sink Press and DC from 1999.
Much easier on the eyes and the nice grey-tones and cross-hatching's are here for us all to appreciate.

Also included in this issue is a science-fiction fan-zine which Siegel and Shuster created back in their Cleveland high school back in 1932...6 years before Superman hit the newsstands...and it features their FIRST interpretation of a character with this name.

I had partially posted part of this back on October 17, 2009 as part of Jerry Sigel's 95th birthday and now here it is intact.


More to come!!
