Remembering Joe Shuster
Remembering the late Joe Shuster (July 10, 1914-July 30, 1992) on his birthday.
Joe Shuster was the artistic half the team that brought us the man of steel, drawing his debut in Action Comics #1(June, 1938), and continuing work well on in that series, as well as in Superman, starting with Superman #1 (Summer, 1939).
It took a little while for Superman to start taking the covers of Action Comics....
...but he was always the main feature of Superman comics...
...and Joe even got a couple of covers for Superboy in Adventure Comics!
While Joe Shuster didn't draw Superman as much as Jerry Siegel wrote him, he still helped create the hero who would stand for truth, justice and the American way!
