Superman debuted in 1938 and suddenly superheroes were all the rage for comic-book publishers seeking to capitalize on the Man of Steel’s supersonic sales. We shouldn’t be surprised that a great many of the newly created crime fighters were fabulously absurd. One hundred of these superweirdoes, led by the likes of Rainbow Boy, Lady Satan, Kangaroo Man, and Doctor Hormone, are profiled in this superlative book—replete with backstories, colorful vintage art, and delightful commentary.
