Joe Shuster train cvr/artThe cover for Superman #3, one of the iconic comic train covers, presents one of the most famous images of Superman from his early days. Drawn by Joe Shuster, with the stories inside written by partner Jerry Siegel. This is a sought-after issue for fans of powerful locomotives (alongside Action #13). The frontispiece features the Man of Steel mid-leap with a small child cradled safely in his arm. The stunned look on the kid's face and his gaping eyes say it all as they fly over a train that's traveling at breakneck speeds.
Joseph Shuster was a Canadian-American comic book artist best known for co-creating the DC Comics character Superman, with writer Jerry Siegel, in Action Comics #1.
