The Cleveland Public Library is beginning a special exhibit commemorating Cleveland comics creators Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel’s greatest feat — Superman.
In an exclusive soiree put on by the Friends of the CPL, fans and/or Lex Luthor wannabes can get the first look at Superman — From Cleveland to Krypton amidst VIP guests (including modern comics writers and historians), a cash bar, rare memorabilia and other special presentations.
Yes, one is allowed to come in a Superman costume. Now watch, somebody will show up as the Batman, ever resentful.
The ticket price — $65 — includes appetizers and complimentary valet parking and a free Superman poster by Shaker Heights artist Derf. No Kryptonite.
The next day, following the ribbon-cutting at 11:15am in lobby of the Main Library, there will be a series of free activities and events from 11am-4pm, including a screening of the 1978 Superman: The Movie and a performance of Superman music by the North Coast Wind Quintet, and a panel discussion on collecting and marketing Superman.
