The Man of Steel’s newspaper adventures ran for more than twenty-five years, from 1939 until 1966, and the vast majority of the strips remain among the rarest of all Superman collectibles. This series remedies that gap in the Superman mythos by beginning a comprehensive archival program to bring back into print every one of the Superman newspaper strips.

The premiere volume of Golden Age Superman dailies includes all strips from February 16, 1942 through October 28, 1944, and features the first appearance of the mischievous Mr. Mxyzptlk, the menace of The Monocle, the nefarious No Name, Miss Dreamface, "King" Jimmy Olsen, and the kidnapping of Santa Claus! More than 800 daily strips that are collected for the first time since their original appearance in newspapers more than 70 years ago!
Wayne Boring was born in Minnesota in 1905 and studied art in his hometown, as well as the Chicago Art Institute. He became one of Joe Shuster’s early assistants in the late 1930s and eventually assumed the full drawing duties. His rendition of Superman became the most recognizable version during the 1950s and ‘60s.

Editorial Reviews

"Superman: The Golden Age Newspaper Dailies: 1942-1944 captures a unique slice of American history.  As for Superman, this period is among the more fascinating.  Although “truth, justice, and the American way” comes during this period from the Superman radio serials, the daily newspaper strips reflect our perception of those values on a far more global scale. It was a time when “champion of the oppressed” took on a whole new meaning." –Cinema Sentries
