Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With so many books about Superman out there, it’s pleasing to know that one book has everything you’d want to know under one cover…An enjoyable read.” Martin Grams Jr., author of The Twilight Zone: Unlocking the Door to a Television Classic
“Michael J. Hayde significantly broadens our empathy for the Man of Steel through his profound revelations surrounding an imposing figure based on popular myth. In a meticulously researched discourse, he supplies the gaps about a character that became a mid-twentieth century hero to the nation’s boys and girls. Hayde probes the backgrounds of the real-life individuals behind-the-scenes and before the microphones and cameras that intensified that aura. In breezy, comprehensive-style, he focuses on the radio and TV manifestations while interweaving timely inferences from the newspaper strip, comics, books, film, and other formats plus a prosperous merchandising trade. Lovers of the genre of juvenile adventures are rewarded by the author’s efforts to expose how one man wearing a cape and bearing incredible strength could pervade an impressionable younger generation and a society that pursued his exploits intensely.” Jim Cox, author of Radio Crime Fighters
