Superman at WTC

The following postings are related to comics (comic books) and this "industry's" reaction to September 11th. As I've mentioned, September 11th impacted material culture in a way that no other event has in American history. It may be fair to say September 11th had an impact (definition impossible) on the world too. Comics and comic books have always reflected "real world" events. For example, during WWII, Wonder Woman battled the Nazis as one of her foes. In the following posts, comic book writers and artists react in concert, offering a number of tributes. In this example here, an American icon, Superman, carries a firefighter away from the rubble of the WTC.
