Joe Shuster/Boring cvr/art; 1st app. of Perry White
Joe Shuster/Boring cvr/art; 1st app. of Perry WhiteGreat Caesar's Ghost! The first appearance of the Chief, Perry White, makes this Super-issue a great key for hardcore Superfans, and a nice little piece of comics history. The striking Shuster cover also eerily predicts the character's full-force leap into the patriotic realm only a year later, as this pre-WWII cover shows the Man of Steel handily shrugging off fiery bullets from a wartime dogfighter.
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.
Wayne Boring is a legendary American comic book artist who's best known for his work on the Golden Age era of Superman and to this day is considered among the top fifty artists to make DC Comics great. Wayne began on the Superman comic strip and in the mid-1940s transitioned over to the main comic book title where he introduced such long standing pieces of canon as the Fortress of Solitude and Bizarro World. Boring would go on to create backgrounds on Hal Foster's Price Valiant from 1968 - 1972 and would draw several titles for Marvel Comics.
