DESCRIPTION

Shuster, Sullivan, Moldoff art (his first); 1937 DC Annual (the second); Comic Book Impact rating of 8 (CBI)
Having seen some success with the previous year's Big Book of Fun, DC hurriedly prepared a doorstop followup, the New Book of Comics, a massive 100-page monster of a comic that featured many of the talents that were soon to shake up the industry in the oncoming superhero craze. The bright, colorful pastiche cover did its job nicely, and the book sold in healthy numbers, though surprisingly few survive to this day, making this certainly one of the five rarest DC comics ever published.


Artist Information

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.
