A DOUBLE LIFE


SECRET IDENTY
The Fetish Art of Superman's Co-Creator Joe Schuster
Craig Yoe
hardcover, 2009
24.95

A showcase for the rare and recently discovered erotic artwork by the most seminal artist in comics, Joe Shuster. Created in the early 1950s when Shuster was down on his luck after suing his publisher, DC Comics, over the copyright for Superman, he illustrated these images for an obscure series of magazines called "Nights of Horror," published under the counter until they were banned by the U.S. Senate following the notorious Brooklyn Thrill Killers trial in 1954.
