Superman Turns 75 Today! 0

Seventy-five years ago, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created a character that they called "Super-Man." That's right, there was a 'dash' between the 'super' and the 'man' all those years ago. The two worked on the character throughout their childhood for six years aiming for perfection. 

When Superman finally hit newsstands on April 18, 1938, the superhero world was forever changed. That first Action Comics #1 issue featured Shuster and Siegel's Super-Man, and it was a smash hit. 

The two built their Super-Man character based on images from Edgar Rice Burrough's ‘John Carter;’ the Bible's ‘Samson;’ and Henry W. Ralston's ‘Doc Savage.’ Superman combined all the best parts from these heroes and became the "Man of Steel" that he is today. 

Here's a bit of the Superman story that you might not have known: Shuster and Siegel's fathers got together and decided to make some money from the boys' superhero. The families were offered $130 in 1938 for the copyright of Superman. 

Guess what? Back in 1938, $130 was a lot of money -- and the U.S. was just emerging from The Great Depression. So, the deal was made, and the two never saw another penny from their super creation. 

To date, the estates of Siegel and Shuster are trying to get back the rights to the Superman franchise. But, battling a company like Warner Brothers is hard to do. Plus, the copyright was legally sold (albeit by the fathers of the two creators, and not by the actual creators). 

Superman has been redrawn, his story added to, and his character analyzed for 75 event-filled years. Even though Siegel and Shuster never anticipated such success, Superman is still one of the most loved and recognized superheroes to date. 

We think Superman (in any form) looks pretty darn good in his 75th year. Happy Birthday, Kal-El! 

New Superman Team Colors 0

Show off your colors Superman-style! Our newest t-shirts come in colors any true fan of Canada’s wonderful winter sport would be proud to wear. Plus, they are made from super soft cotton, spun in the Americas, and have just the right amount of fade. Canada’s favorite pastime has never looked this good! 

Superhero goes well with everything, which is why we’ve created these original designs. We’re currently offering ‘Superman Team Colors’ in green/blue; black/gold; red/orange; orange/blue; red/blue; and blue/red (with some fleur-de-lis mixed in!). 

We also think that this is perfect time, don’t you? With the new Superman movie debuting in just two short months (two months!), we’ve mixed two of the biggest things happening right now, and look what we’ve created! An iconic design that’s as durable and soft as it is amazing to look at!

As always, Jack of All Trades Clothing only prints a few of each design. In other words: get these while you can. Our new ‘Superman Team Colors’ are sure to fly off of our shelves “Faster Than A Speeding Bullet!” Once they’re gone…they’re outta here! 

What’s next at Jack of All Trades? You never know what Jack has up his sleeve. Stay tuned for more new designs and amazing discounts on the best tees around!
