The First Modern American Superheroes

Sunday, September 18, 2022
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Before Iron Man, Batman, and Superman flew across our screens the pages of pulp fiction brought the first "superheroes" into our lives. The Shadow seemed to be invisible to criminals, Doc Savage had superhuman strength, and Tarzan could swing through the trees while talking to the animals. Do Marvel and DC owe a debt to these intrepid pulp writers of the early 20th century?
