MEN OF TOMORROW: Geeks, Gangsters, and the Birth of the Comic Book.

By Jones, Gerald.

New York:: Basic Books,, (2004). Fine in fine dust jacket (a new copy.). First printing. A fascinating book: "This history of the birth of superhero comics highlights three pivotal figures. The story begins early in the last century, on the Lower East Side, where Harry Donenfeld rises from the streets to become the king of the 'smooshes'-soft-core magazines with titles like French Humor and Hot Tales. Later, two high school friends in Cleveland, Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel, become avid fans of 'scientifiction,' the new kind of literature promoted by their favorite pulp magazines. The disparate worlds of the wise guy and the geeks collide in 1938, and the result is Action Comics #1, the debut of Superman. For Donenfeld, the comics were a way to sidestep the censors. For Shuster and Siegel, they were both a calling and an eventual source of misery: the pair waged a lifelong campaign for credit and appropriate compensation." (The New Yorker) SIGNED by the authro on the title page and dated in the year of publication. Photographs. Notes on sources, index. xv, 384 pp
