Book Reviews: New Comics Collections - NYTimes

Comics - Book Review - New Comics Collections - Review - "In the tense, murky years before Ameri ca entered World War II, its young couldn’t get enough tales of costumed mystery men. SUPERMEN! The First Wave of Comic Book Heroes 1936-41 (Fantagraphics, paper, $24.99) is a rambunctious anthology of the earliest superhero stories — gaudy, crude, infernally potent things, cranked out by scrappy young cartoonists who were more concerned with what the likes of Silver Streak, Yarko the Great and Skyrocket Steele could do than with what they might mean."
