Truth, Justice And The Canadian Way: Royal Canadian Mint Issues Four New Superman Coins

SupermanCoins

Last year, the Royal Canadian Mint issued seven collector's coins to celebrate Superman's 75th anniversary. Looks like it's a hard habit to break, because at this year's Fan Expo in Toronto, the mint announced it was issuing four more coins with images from covers dating back to Superman's debut in 1938.

Though he's widely considered a U.S. hero, Superman has Canadian roots. Joe Shuster, who co-created Superman with Jerry Siegel, was born in Toronto.

In fact, it's the cover to Action Comics #15, cover dated August 1939, and it was drawn by Fred Guardineer, one of DC Comics' go-to cover artists at the time. The cover depicts Superman underwater, saving a disabled submarine. When the issue was released, it sold for a dime.

Pakseid

With the recent launch of Batman/Superman and a trio of "Villain Month" issues, you'd think that one man would have enough of writing Superman. As it turns out, however, Greg Pak has a dire need that can only be sated by an ongoing series. That all-consuming hunger to tell Superman stories is (presumably) why he and artist Aaron Kuder are taking over Action Comics starting with November's issue #25.

We spoke to Pak to find out more about his influences for the series, whether it's difficult to juggle two Superman stories set at different times, and, perhaps most importantly, what his plans are for Terra-Man.
