Where do I begin with Superman? First off, I couldn’t stop laughing at the comic. Not because it was full of jokes, but it was so corny! From the language and the art, each page had these unrealistic scenarios that made me chuckle. Regardless of the innocent humor and “life-life” situations, I actually liked the comic. Although, when I saw the first the page all I could think about was, “Seriously!?” Of course, though, I was wrong about any negative judgment I had of Superman, because it turns out I think I have a bit of liking for this comic. Continuing with Superman, Jerome Siegel and Joe Shuster expose this super hero to the public, of course by Superman doing something justly and worthy of honor by the people. Yet, throughout the comic that’s all he does. Siegel and Shuster outline Superman by the following: his infatuation with Lois and his super human powers. Although unrealistic, this 13 page comic had more life saving then I have read in any adventure book. I kept wondering, “Who is Superman going to save now?” I’d turn a page and again someone would either be getting in Superman’s face or trying to hurt someone else. Even though that is his purpose, Shuster and Siegel clearly proved to the public that Superman, does in fact, has extraordinary powers and he isn’t afraid to use them; unless it is in front of his lovely Lois. Siegle and Shuster did a good job of hooking the reader by using as much action as they did in their first Superman comic.
Furthermore, I could tell immediately this was an older comic. The patterned color scheme (red, blue, yellow, green), the simplistic language, and the basic art style gave away the age of this comic. Clearly, modern day comics are very different in terms or art, color, and language. Also, the art stayed consistent through out the comic. However, a difference I noticed was the characters from page to page sometimes differed. At times
