    That book that Howard Chaykin recommended looks very interesting. I put it on my wish list.

    Just to follow up: I’m reading “It’s Superman!”, (about a quarter way through it), and Howard Chaykin is right. It’s a really good book. Superman in the 1930’s, just starting out, Lois Lane, just out of journalism school and involved with a ne’er-do-well photographer and Lex Luthor, an ambitious and unscrupulous city alderman.
