Overview


The artwork of Curt Swan (1920-1996) defined the look of "Superman" for over 30 years. His amazing skills of storytelling, draftsmanship and design brought a realism and sense of wonder to The Man of Steel's adventures, making them the best-selling comic books of their day. Filled with iconic artwork, this biography traces the artist's career from its beginning on features like "Gangbusters" to his widespread regard as the Dean of American comics and, later, his frustrations with an industry that viewed his dignified work as unfashionable. It features one-to-one interviews with Curt Swan's family members as well as with comics legends Joe Kubert, Carmine Infantino, Murphy Anderson and others.
