As I said to my terrified boyfriend in September of 2007… I’m late.
This time, however, I am referring to the anniversary of the first publications of Superman. June 30th, 1938: Superman debuted in Action Comics. Almost exactly one year later, in June of 1939, Superman #1 was released.
So Happy Birthday, Superman. And thanks for making the nerds of the world that much richer and cooler for investing in comics instead of football. Score.
