Siegel and Shuster: Dateline 1930s

By Siegel and Shuster

Publisher: eclipse comics

In 1935, Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel collaborated and brought us the story of Superman, strange visitor from another world. They hoped to bring another title to life featuring some of their other works to be called Popular Comics. Unfortunately most of their efforts never saw the light of day for fifty years and Dell Comics came out with the same title in 1936 with various newspaper strips reprinted, such as Dick Tracy and Terry and the Pirates. The Cleveland Shopping News had given Siegel and Shuster a contract for their new comic tabloid idea and the boys completed the inked-in first issue and prepared rough dummy art for the proposed second issue. Most of these early collaborations are collected in these two issues, including 18 of the Snoopy and Smiley strips (the saga of a couple of down on their luck bums exploring the country) as well as various penciled pages of possible stories of science fiction (Bruce Verne: G-Man of the Future) and comic escapades (Inko, the Waif, Gloria Glamour, and others). The second issue also carries one of Joe Shuster’s early science fiction sketches from 1931.
