Joe Shuster was a Canadian-American comic book artist best known for co-creating the DC Comics character Superman, with Jerry Siegel, in Action Comics #1 (cover-dated June 1938).
Shuster was involved in a number of legal battles over ownership of the Superman character. His comic book career after Superman was relatively unsuccessful, and by the mid-1970s Shuster had left the field completely due to partial blindness.
He and Siegel were inducted into both the comic book industry’s Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 1992 and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1993. In 2005, the Canadian Comic Book Creator Awards Association instituted the Joe Shuster Awards, named to honor the Canada-born artist.
Presented is a wonderful display that features the autographs of both Comic Book Hall of Famers Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel on a comic parchment (5.5″ x 7″). The comic showcasing Superman saving two guys is originally from Superman (1938) and republished with the copyright of 1976 National Periodical Publications Inc. (as noted on the parchment).
Despite the official names “National Comics” and “National Periodical Publications”, the company began branding itself as “Superman-DC” as early as the 1950s, and it became known colloquially as DC Comics for years before the official adoption of that name in 1977.
Siegel signed it along the side of the parchment in black felt tip (“8” mussed) and Shuster next to him in blue pen (“8-9″). The entire display measures 20.5″ x 27”.
