Front Cover Fridays #19

Ah, yes. It’s Superman’s comic book debut in Action Comics #1. Today, the company is DC Comics. Absolutely awesome. Creator Jerry Siegel came up with the story in 1933 originally as a comic strip, but was adapted to a comic book by Detective Comics in June 1938. The opening page (seen below) depicts the story we all know and love: a scientist from Krypton catapults his baby boy toward earth as his home planet is imploding. The baby is put in an orphanage and very quickly discovered to have enormous feats of strength, speed and durability. Thus, Superman was born.
