内容紹介

"A collection like SUPERMEN! works like a reverse-neutron bomb to assumptions about the birth of the superhero image: it tears down the orderly structures of theory and history and leaves the figures standing in full view, staring back at us in all their defiant disorienting particularity, their blazing strangeness."--from the foreword by Jonathan Lethem The enduring cultural phenomenon of comic book heroes was invented in the late 1930s by a hungry and talented group of artists and writers barely out of their teens, flying by the seat of their pants to come up with something new, exciting, and above all profitable. The iconography and mythology they created flourishes to this day in practically all visual media.Supermen! collects the best and the brightest of this first generation, including Jack Cole, Will Eisner, Bill Everett, Lou Fine, Fletcher Hanks, Jack Kirby, Jerry Siegel, Joe Shuster, and Basil Wolverton. Readers expecting to find an All-American group of altruistic do-gooders are in for quite a jolt. As Jonathan Lethem writes in his Foreword, "A collection like Supermen! works like a reverse-neutron bomb to assumptions about the birth of the superhero image: it tears down the orderly structures of theory and history and leaves the figures standing in full view, staring back at us in all their defiant disorienting particularity, their blazing strangeness." Beautifully designed and produced in full color, Supermen! contains twenty full-length stories, nine full-sized covers, a generous selection of vintage promotional ads, and comprehensive background notes by editor Greg Sadowski. This anthology is indispensable to anyone interested in the origins of superheroes and the history of the comic book form.

レビュー

Greg Sadowski has compiled vivid early work by Will Eisner, Jack Kirby and Jack Cole, among others who went on to be the medium's great stylists. -- Douglas Wolk

Pure pop culture heaven. -- Kevin Church

It's great to read comics that are fun, inventive, and delighting in the medium instead of dour, 'relevant, ' and procedural. Supermen! is a teasing look at a truly Golden Age. -- Dave Lartigue

Supermen! is the book I've been waiting for-a crazed whirlwind tour through the raw badlands of early superheroes, the best and the weirdest of the early days...Fantagraphics Books has assembled 20 of these quirky gems into a nicely designed, affordable full-color paperback. It's like a roadmap of alternative history, where you can imagine that a character like Stardust the Super Wizard became a star...It's one of the best comic collections of the year. Bring on a sequel! -- Nik Dirga

Pure pop culture heaven.--Kevin Church

Maybe the business was too young, or maybe these characters were just a warm-up for what was to come so they didn't quite stick, but they are just as cool as any early Superman or Batman comic. The comics are all really neat to read, crude and unfiltered... So if you re a comics fan, especially of the early stuff, this book is a must-have... [Supermen! The First Wave of Comic Book Heroes 1936-1941] is gritty and exciting, so definitely go check it out! --Tom Hardej

Greg Sadowski's anthology Supermen!: The First Wave Of Comic Book Heroes 1939-41 pulls together some of the goofiest, most innocent, most violent superhero comics ever penned, excavating rarities from the dawn of the genre when small studios set out to reinvent pulp literature in four colors.... This is pure and unadulterated Id, the kind of thing that inspired a moral panic about the corruption of the young. It's every bit as potent today. --Cory Doctorow

What was once mundane had become utterly fascinating in Fantagraphics superb collection Supermen! --Rob Lott

Bring on a sequel! --Nik Dirga

Supermen! is an interesting book. All these knockoffs of Superman have a certain creepy charm like an off-brand children's entertainer and there is some art, especially by Basil Wolverton and Jack Cole, that is literally decades ahead of its time. --Paul Constant

Pure pop culture heaven. --Kevin Church

It 's great to read comics that are fun, inventive, and delighting in the medium instead of dour, 'relevant, ' and procedural. Supermen! is a teasing look at a truly Golden Age. --Dave Lartigue

Supermen! excited me... for suggesting a burning, manic soul of superhero comics... It felt like the start of a future, and the comedown only hit when I realized I enjoyed it more than any new superhero comic of 2009. --Joe McCulloch

I can't think of a better single volume of what the period style of fast looked like in practice than last year's Supermen! anthology. Yes, there's an added winnowing by genre but that just sharpens the sense of the reductive visual and narrative requirements that were standard for the hot new gravy train that hit the business. --Rich Kreiner ""Best of the Year" "

The biggest surprise might be how good these stories are, even if they failed to take off in the way that, say, Superman did... [T]he Notes section at the end, written by editor Greg Sadowski, ...is truly fantastic... His studious efforts are worth the price of the book alone... These stories deserved another look and more attention. Sadowski has done an admirable job of making Supermen! The First Wave of Comic Book Heroes 1936 1941 not only reverent, but exciting and fun as well. --John Hogan

This Greg Sadowski-edited and designed anthology of early superhero comics is, like Paul Karasik's Fletcher Hanks collection and DC's Jack Kirby omnibuses before it, a real "here's how it's done" moment.... In a time when the major superhero companies seem dead-set on creating the most uniform tone possible across their lines...evidence that superheroes can behave in any number of ways against any number of threats is indeed liberating, perhaps even necessary. --Sean T. Collins"

Pure pop culture heaven. --Kevin Church"

[G]oofy fun... worth it for Fletcher Hanks 'Fantomah' and 'Stardust' strips and Basil Wolverton s 'Spacehawk.' The fact that you also get stuff like 'Yarko the Great' and 'Rex Dexter of Mars' can only be counted as a bonus. --Jeff Kapalka"

The comics are glorious, primitive works of pulp science fiction, crude ancestors of the modern superhero. Yet there's something vital and imaginative about these unsophisticated comics which clumsily explore superhero stories and ideas long before they calcified into cliche. --David Campbell"

A beautifully designed volume of early American comics... The edition is both aesthetically pleasing and sturdy, featuring clarified reprinting of the colour strips, covers, and scattered elements of advertisements and back matter.--Michael Leader

Supermen! provides a concise glimpse into what the early comic books were like back when the medium was really fresh... Today s readers will be surprised at how some of the material from a supposed more naive times really comes across rather grim and gritty... The 20 stories on view here provide an intriguing insight of where many of our modern day comic book heroes may have originated from, even if indirectly. --Kevin Mathews"

Excitingly surreal our appreciation for the bizarre otherness of these characters in retrospect suggests that our contemporary icons might well appear no less totally opaque and infinitely awkward to future readers."

Supermen!, this anthology lovingly assembled by Greg Sadowski, makes the case that these earliest endeavors by the future creators of masterworks like The Spirit, Captain America, and Plastic Man were more than crude throat-clearings they were unfiltered manifestations ?of psyche, lousy with erotic charge and questionable politics. [Grade: ] A . "

Supermen! is a rambunctious anthology of the earliest superhero stories gaudy, crude, infernally potent things, cranked out by young cartoonists. --Douglas Wolk"

I ve always gotten a kick out of early comics. They re anti-art in action. Irrational, crude and daffily violent. Kinda like early punk rock.--M. Ace"

Featuring an eclectic assortment of rare, long-out-of-print American superhero short stories... an all-star cast of early work from luminaries including Siegel and Shuster, Simon & Kirby, Fine & Eisner, Wolverton, Cole, Hanks, etc. The reproduction of each story is top notch, with bright, vivid colors, slightly oversized pages and thick paperstock.--Marc Sobel,

[A]n amazing collection of Golden Age comics and heroes, beautifully restored.--Carol Borden

Supermen! excited me... for suggesting a burning, manic soul of superhero comics... It felt like the start of a future, and the comedown only hit when I realized I enjoyed it more than any new superhero comic of 2009. --Joe McCulloch

[Grade: ] A-.

A fun anthology that perfectly captures the experience of stumbling across a random stack of old comics in someone's attic.

A marvel... a non-stop visual delight as much for the art as for the colors as for the audacious (sometimes by default) layouts... [T]he early days of comic books were like the underground: Everything was possible, especially the impossible. You absolutely must buy this book.--Jean-Pierre Dionnet, co-founder, Les Humanoides Associes
