9780465036578: Men of Tomorrow: Geeks, Gangsters, and the Birth of the Comic Book
Review:

"The fascinating and heartbreaking true story of the goniffs, shmendricks and shlemiels who gave birth to the superhero comics - written with all the verve and velocity of a golden age comic book." Art Spiegelman "This history of the birth of superhero comics highlights three pivotal figures. The story begins early in the last century, on the Lower East Side, where Harry Donenfeld rises from the streets to become the king of the 'smooshes' - soft-core magazines with titles like French Humour and Hot Tales. Later, two high school friends in Cleveland, Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel become avid fans of 'scientification', the new kind of literature promoted by their favourite pulp magazines. The disparate worlds of the wise guy and the geeks collide in 1938, and the result is Action Comics No. 1, the debut of Superman. For Donenfeld, the comics were a way to sidestep the censors. For Shuster and Siegel, they were both a calling and an eventual source of misery: the pair waged a lifelong campaign for credit and appropriate compensation. The New Yorker"

From the Publisher:

Animated by the stories of some of the last century's most charismatic and conniving artists, writers, and businessmen, Men of Tomorrow brilliantly demonstrates how the creators of the superheroes gained their cultural power and established a crucial place in the modern imagination.
