Craig Yoe has a dirty little secret.
Actually, it is Joe Shuster’s dirty little secret; Yoe just happens to be the researcher who uncovered and exposed it to the world.
Turns out that the artist and co-creator of Superman spent a few years in the 1950s, post-Man of Steel, churning out fetish girl art to earn a living. That’s the secret part—the dirty part is that Shuster was really quite good at it.
Yoe just published a new book, aptly titled Secret Identity: The Fetish Art of Superman’s Co-creator Joe Shuster.
This is no minor discovery, either: Yoe enlisted none other than Marvel Comics longtime publisher, editor and writer Stan Lee to pen the book’s introduction.
