News: Superman at 70

This month marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of Action Comics #1, the first appearance of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's Superman and, as such, the inauguration of the superhero era. Whilst this important anniversary hasn't garnered much attention yet, AFP covers the event here. The blogs have come up trumps, too, and both Mark Engblom's Comic Coverage and Tony Z's Comics N' Things have devoted a month of posts to the anniversary. Even better, you can read Action Comics #1 in its entirety, hosted by the University of Virginia, here.
