With the opening of the new Superman film, I thought it would be appropriate to post a number of items over the next few days from the first Superman cartoons: the Fleischer shorts from the early 1940s.

Here's a cel from the first Superman short that was published in an article about Superman creators Siegel and Shuster in the June 21 1941 edition of the Saturday Evening Post.

The article is quite interesting as it paints the two Cleveland guys as as babes in the woods when it comes to business; foreshadowing their years of struggle to come. I'm going to try to scan and post it.

More tomorrow!
