I’m in awe of characters that are timeless.  Superman has transcended generations due in large part to its juxtaposition of human and superhuman.  A regular guy with super hero skills.  I’m fascinated with the creation of characters.  I wanted to know who were the brilliant creators behind Superman?  It is one of the most iconic designs and characters of our time, yet, we don’t know the backstory.

I reached out to award winning author, Marc Tyler Nobleman who wrote the interesting and eye opening book, Boys of Steel, about the creators of Superman.  I love the book and recommend it as a great summer read to middle school kids and above.

As a dad and an author, Marc also had some great tips for us parents, about how to leap over the summer slump in a single bound, and to have books be more powerful than a locomotive.  It’s a bird. It’s a plane.  It’s Marc Tyler Nobleman!
