Joe Shuster Fetish Art Book Becomes Basis For Film
Comic book creators typically chronicle secret identities rather than harboring them. But earlier this year a book of fetish art created in the 1950s by Superman co-creater Joe Shuster was published, purporting to shed light on his ?secret identity? as an artist who did more than just Superman. According to Craig Yoe?s book Secret Identity: The Fetish Art of Superman?s Co-creator Joe Shuster, Shuster was the man behind a series of fetish comics called Nights of Horror, produced while he was in dire financial straits due to lawsuits over Superman copyrights. Now, Variety says, The Gotham Group has optioned the book and is sending it out to writers to create a feature film.
