Today is the 76th anniversary (as near as we can tell) of the publication of Action Comics #1. I thought I’d post this — something optimistic — their first (until their deaths) cover story in their hometown, announcing the appearance of the Superman syndicated newspaper strip — which was, back then, the much bigger deal.

A big thank you to the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History — and guest judges David Hassler, Emily Wilson, and M.L. Smoker — for awarding me the Grand Prize in the Poetry in the Museum Contest this year.

You can read all of the winning poems here. 

The Museum is one of my favorite places for many reasons, so this means a great deal to me. Go visit soon.
