Today is the unveiling of a new part of the site. Another step towards making this not just a tribute to the work of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, but a resource for finding that work.
While Siegel and Shuster collaborated or worked with other creators on more than 1,000 comic book stories, very few of these, Superman-related stories aside, have been reprinted. Reprints of Jerry Siegel’s and Joe Shuster’s Superman-family comic book stories are easy to come by. Between the Archive Editions, Chronicles and Showcase Presents series, as well as other reprint collections in recent years, approximately 75 percent of their Superman-related comic stories have been reprinted — some many times over.
But what about their other comic book works? Want to read one of the more-than 700 other comic book stories they worked on, either collaboratively or with other creators, but can’t afford an original issue? You need a reprint.
To that end, I am happy to present, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster: Reprints, a (to the best of my knowledge) comprehensive list of English-language reprints of Siegel’s and Shuster’s non-Superman works.
Know of any reprints missing from the list? Can you help fill out the list with non-English reprints? Be sure to send a message. And be sure to track down as many of the reprints as interest you. If publishers catch wind of an interest in currently reprinted material, they will be more likely to publish future reprints of little-seen stories.
A huge thanks to all of the hard-working editors at the Grand Comics Database and Mike Voiles of Mike’s Amazing World of Comics. This list could never have been compiled without all of the information provided these people.
