And so it begins…
LOOK! Down on the Ground!
It’s a Bag. It’s some Trash.
It’s… It’s… What is that?…
It 1997, a young law firm assistant- Lauren Agostino- Literally stumbled on a secret cache from Superman’s creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. These original documents, private correspondence, legal papers, and artwork expose the muted and maligned history of the relationships and dynamics of the Superman family.
The origin of Superman and the downfall of its creator Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster is a dramatic saga that underscores one of America’s most popular cultural icons. For the first time, Agostino and writer A.L. Newberg reveal the extraordinary true story of the Man of Steel’s rise from a creative concept (sold for the infamous $130) to the 1947 lawsuit that nearly denied Siegel and Shuster of any future with their Man of Tomorrow.
Stripped away of the lies, myths and cover-ups this is a treasure trove for Superman fans and historians alike.
-The Superman Letters is a short documentary that we had the honor to be a part of. Enjoy!!
