Joe Shuster BATMAN drawing!

Via an orphan emailing, I was sent to the Noblemania blog, the home of Marc Tyler Nobleman, author of "Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman" (a book which we should be getting shortly), and that astonishing picture of perhaps the only known drawing of The BATMAN by SUPERMAN co-creator Joe Shuster! Find the whole story HERE!

I am almost speechless.

It's moments like this that really make me appreciate the internet. An amazing find.

ADDED: (Am I crazy? Has anyone else ever seen a Shuster Batman drawing?)

IT'S A SHUSTER DRAWING OF BATMAN, PEOPLE! IT MAY BE ONE-OF-A-KIND! Shuster normally only drew Superman and his cast... am I the only one that thinks this is AMAZING?

I'm in agreement too. How cool would it have been to have seen a World's Finest completely drawn by Shuster! I've been wondering all day now what other Golden Age characters Shuster may have sketched from DC's original cast of characters!
