Al Plastino : Last Superman Standing

Eddie Zeno
Al Plastino
With a comics career dating back to 1941, Al Plastino was one of the last surviving penciler/inkers of his era. Labouring uncredited on Superman for two decades (1948-1968), he co-created Supergirl, Brainiac, and the Legion of Super-Heroes, drawing those characters’ first appearances, and illustrating the initial comics story to feature Kryptonite. 
 
He was called upon to help maintain the DC Comics house-style by redrawing other artists’ Superman heads, most notoriously Jack Kirby. With a foreword by Paul Levitz, this book was completed just weeks before Al’s recent passing. In these pages, the artist remembers both his struggles and triumphs in the world of comics, cartooning and beyond, painting a layered portrait of Plastino’s life and career. And a wealth of illustrations show just how influential a figure he is in the history of comics.
