Ask Chris #291: Triangle Numbers
Q: What in God's name were Triangle Numbers? -- @RavenWorks A: Oh, well this one'e easy. They were numbers inside little triangles. Hence the name. Okay, so maybe there's a little bit more to it than that, but not much. From 1991 to 2002, the Superman books had two separate numbers on the cover: The issue number, which would tell you which monthly issue of Superman or Action Comics you were reading, and the Triangle Number, which would tell you which part of the ongoing saga that was running through all the Superman titles for a given year. And believe it or not, putting two completely different numbers on the cover of your comic book --- three, if you count the date - was actually meant to make things less complicated.
'Adventures of Superman' on Radio: The First Great Adaptation
"Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!" "Look! Up in the sky!" "It's a bird!" "It's a plane!" "It's — Superman!" Nowadays, those words are so inextricably tied to Superman that it's hard to imagine the character existing without them, but it wasn't the comic book page that brought them to audiences. It was the Adventures of Superman radio show, which debuted on this day in 1940 and would spend the next decade helping to shape the character and how people related to him, adding interesting twists and characters to the ongoing mythos and providing the source of genuine change in the world beyond the airwaves.
Royal Canadian Mint Issues Four New Superman Coins
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.
