With today being the 15th anniversary of Jerry Siegel’s death, Cleveland.com has republished a 1996 article about Siegel, originally published in the Cleveland Plain Dealer just a few days after his death.
Unlike many of the modern comics whose heroes are as violent as the villains, Superman still fights for “truth, justice and the American way.”
“You can’t change him much,” said Michael Carlin, editor of the Superman comics line for DC. “Jerry got it right the first time.”
As they were kind enough to link to this site, specifically the Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster biography by Jamie Coville that I have hosted (with Coville’s generous permission) since I first launched the site several years ago, I thought it not only appropriate to not only bring attention to the article, but to also take a moment to remember one of Superman’s two creators.
