RS Janes. H/T to the late Joe Shuster & Jerry Siegel.


  1. Yay, a comic book reference that is funny. Nice job on crediting Siegel & Shuster, it took DC comics 40 years to do that.

  2. Thanks, DB. Joe and Jerry really got shafted by the ‘Decent Comics’ boys, didn’t they? DC bought the rights for $130, and ten bucks a page for the original art, and that was about it.

    As it says in ‘Who Owns Superman: The Sad Story of Superman Creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster’ by Eliot Feldman:

    “Writer Jerry Siegel died broke in 1996. Artist Joe Shuster was broke and legally blind when he died in 1992.”

    Meanwhile, idiots and con artists made millions off of their creation.

    Oh, yeah, they did win a lawsuit and got $100,000 for coming up with Superboy, and a $20,000 per year salary from Warner Communications starting in the 1970s — while the Hollywood sharks and DC split up a billion in revenue.
