Superman Action Comics #1 was officially released 80 years ago today. After the release of that comic that year, Superman became immensely popular over the years. Yes, Superman has been 80 years in the entertainment business. Not only that Superman was a hit in the comics, the character continues to entertain us in various forms of entertainment in cartoons, big screen movies, animated movies, TV shows, video games, etc.
I’ve been a fan of Superman my whole life, really. When I was a child, I used to watch the old George Reeves Superman TV show and I watched the old Superman cartoons. After the first Superman Action comics was released, 40 years later we saw the release of the live action Superman film, “Superman: The Movie” which starred Christopher Reeve. That film was a huge hit in the box office which also made 3 more Superman films with Chris after that. I love the original Superman movies with Chris Reeve. Those movies are very special to me.
Superman continues to entertain us even to this very day. Superman went through different actors on the big screen and now currently Henry Cavill portrays the character in which I think he does a good job at. Superman is still the most iconic superhero in the entertainment industry. I’ve always loved the character and still do. I just love the stories and find the Superman character fascinating like a lot of people do.
I wasn’t a big comic collector over the years of my life but I’m trying to get into comic collecting now. I’ve been buying a lot of Superman comics ’cause I just love reading them. I only buy comics like once a year at Saratoga Comic Con but I’m planning to buy comics a lot more often ’cause they are getting quite addicting. I love comics. I can see why they’re popular and why everyone loves comics. I’ll mostly collect Superman comics ’cause he’s my #1 favorite.
Happy 80th birthday, Superman. Thanks for entertaining us for 80 years!
