Curt Swan was born on February 17, 1920. To commemorate the anniversary of his birth, the feature for this episode is the back story of SUPERMAN ANNUAL #9 from 1983, I FLEW WITH SUPERMAN. Curt Swan co-stars with Superman in this story that Curt inked over his own pencils, one of the few stories with which he did so. I could find no reprint information about this story. I will be sharing the entire plot of the story. So if you would like to read this story before listening to this episode, you should be able to find it on line or in the back issue bins of your local comic book store.

After sharing my favorite Superman stories last episode, this time I want to talk about my favorite comic book artist, Curt Swan. Starting with a brief biography, I then highlight key issues from Curt Swan’s career, and why I enjoy his art style so much. At the end of the podcast I share some of the earliest Curt Swan stories I remember reading as a young boy, that I have been able to find copies of again and add to my comic book collection: 

SUPERMAN #181, Nov. 1965, THE SUPER SCOOP OF MONA VINE and THE SUPERMAN OF 2965. 

WORLD’S FINEST #155, Feb. 1966, THE 1,000TH EXPLOIT OF SUPERMAN AND BATMAN. This was the first comic book I remember my Dad buying me as a small boy. WORLD’S FINEST #159, Aug. 1966, THE CAPE AND COWL CROOKS. 

To read more about Curt Swan’s life and career read CURT SWAN: A LIFE IN COMICS, by Eddy Zeno, published by Vanguard Productions in 2002.
