Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman - Marc Tyler Nobleman, Ross  MacDonald This is a rather charming take on the legend behind the creation of the world's most iconic comic book character, but be advised that it is basically a children's book. Luckily, I only paid a penny and shipping for it from Amazon Marketplace. While it was enjoyable, I would've preferred it to be a more detailed study of the legal battle between Shuster and Siegel and DC Comics. There was some information in an afterword, but I literally found out more salient facts about the situation from a book about Marvel Comics I read last year. The artwork is excellent, in keeping with Joe Shuster's original style on Action Comics.
