Great Classic Collection: Superman: Sunday Newspaper Classics 1939-1943

This week I just finished reading a hardbound book collecting Superman newspaper comic strips from 1939 to 1943. "Superman Sunday Classics 1939-1943."
  Superman debuted in the world in 1938, and his creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster (writer and artist) developed a Sunday newspaper strip in addition to the comic book (Action Comics and Superman Comics). 
   This is a GREAT collection. Over the course of the 4 years, you'll see Superman's chest symbol change from an upside down triangle to a diamond shape, and the colors outside of the "S" go from black to yellow. It's also over this time that Superman begins flying instead of just leaping. Really awesome time in the development of the character.
   Of course the stories were great. It was a much simpler time, and Jerry Siegel was a great writer and knew how to keep your attention. Joe Shuster was a fantastic artist, too. 
   You can find it on, and some copies are even below a dollar ! WOW. - Rob
ABOUT THE BOOK:In the late thirties, when Superman was making his ground-breaking debut in comic books, his legend was simultaneously being propagated in Sunday newspapers.
 Collected in this deluxe edition are the first three years of the classic Sunday Superman comic strips as written and illustrated by the Man of Steel's creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster.
  In these timeless tales, the Man of Steel challenges saboteurs and racketeers, saves runaway trains and plummeting planes, defeats giant robots and begins his lifelong rivalry with his greatest nemesis, Lex Luthor.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
