Superman's sexual fetish revealed

Superman isn’t the only one with a secret. Joe Shuster, the artist who co-created the Man of Steel along with writer Jerry Siegel had one of his own.

In the 1950s, when Shuster and Siegel were fighting with DC Comics to regain the copyright to their character, Shuster was unable get any work. So instead of illustrating the adventures of Lois and Clark, Shuster took to decidedly different sorts of couples in images for Nights of Horror, a fetish magazine sold in Times Square sex shops.

It doesn’t take a huge imagination to look at the cover of Craig Yoe’s upcoming Secret Identity: The Fetish Art of Superman’s Co-creator Joe Shuster (Abrams, $24.95 – Available in April) and picture the young artist getting out his frustrations over what he’d lost, because the faces seem awfully close to those of the most famous famous couple in comics.

Most (if not all) of this is taken from SCI FI
