Video – Elliot S! Maggin on What Superman Means to Him

Legendary writer Elliot S! Maggin sat down for a chat with Hero Journalism to discuss what Superman means to him, how he first became a Superman fan, and how he approached Superman stories as a writer.

Elliot S! Maggin began writing for Superman with 1972’s instant classic “Must There Be a Superman?” in Superman #247 (1st vol.). He remained one of the principal writers of the comic book adventures of Superman through 1986 when the Silver Age Earth-1 Superman retired happily in Alan Moore’s “Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?” finale.

In addition to authoring Superman’s comic adventures, Maggin is probably equally famous for writing two original Superman novels published in conjunction with 1978’s “Superman: The Movie” and 1980’s “Superman II”. The first novel, “Superman: Last Son of Krypton”, followed by “Superman: Miracle Monday”.

Maggin is a master Superman writer, and it is a criminal shame that more Superman readers aren’t familiar with works involving Superman. Miracle Monday is a classic story that every Superman reader should have the pleasure of enjoying.
