Superman exhibit opening in Cleveland airport

Associated Press • Oct 11, 2012 at 6:10 PM

Relatives of Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster will be at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport Thursday night for the opening of the exhibit.

The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/RyPF8m ) reports that the Superman exhibit was put together by the Siegel and Shuster Society, a group formed to honor the boys who created a worldwide cultural icon in the midst of the Great Depression. Superman fans contributed about $50,000 for the exhibit.

Next summer marks 75 years since Superman first appeared in "Action Comics" No. 1, heralding a worldwide comic book industry. A near perfect copy of that 10 cent comic sold last year for $2.1 million.
