Was Superman A Spy?

The most fun comics related book i've read in a while. Brian Cronin runs through the comic book legends we've come to love and wonder...was Wolverine meant to be an actual wolverine? Which comic book character inspired Elvis Presley's iconic hairdo? Did the inventor of the lie detector test also invent Wonder Woman's lasso of truth? Did Stan Lee feature a gay character in one of Marvel's 1960s war comics? Did the Ghost Rider meet Jesus in the late 1970s? And was Bruce Banner sodomized at the Y in The Hulk #23? (written by Jim Shooter no less)

Up there with Bryan Talbot's The Naked Artist: Comic Book Legends.

Can be found at Kino.
