Inspired by the true story of the Cleveland teenagers—Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster—who created Superman, “Geeks & Gangsters” is now available in print for the first time—just in time for Superman’s 75th anniversary! This handsome edition contains the entire play and is illustrated with photos from the original 2007 production of the show. It also includes an introduction by the author—award-winning playwright, Rob. Lauer—and production credits from the show’s original production. Jerry and Joe were typical high school Geeks: the popular kids ignored them, the jocks picked on them and the girls didn’t know they were alive. Brought together by their love of pulp magazines and science fiction (then called scienti-fiction ), they funneled their frustrations as high school outcasts into creating comic characters they dreamed would one day make them famous as comic strip artists. And it was while they were still in high school that they created a character that would become a cultural icon—and the most universally recognized fictional character of the 20th century: Superman! Inspired by the true story of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster—the creators of Superman, award-winning playwright Rob. Lauer has created a comic fable about growing up. The frustration of being an outsider, the excitement of connecting with someone who “gets you,” the thrill of creating something new, and the pain of losing what you’ve created—all of this is brought to life in “Geeks & Gangsters.” "Geek & Gangsters: is now in print just in time for the Man of Steel’s 75th anniversary—illustrated with photos from the original production.
