  11. If you were a comic book writer would you sell your book?The tittle of this book is Boys Of Steel and the author is Marc Tyler.One reason I want you to read this book is because it has A lot of action in it.Another reason I would recomend this book is because it shows how superman was created.One more reason it shows you can do anything.I think that my friend Sam should read this book because he lovesssssssss superman.Dont you think if u were to make a comic book u would be rich ?Think again.

  12. did you know who really created superman?well lets just say it was jerry siegel and joe shooster for more information you will have to read BOYS OF STEEL BY MARC TYLER NOBELMAN.One reason someone should read this book is because DCcomics never created superman they paid very little money for it.In this book you will learn jerry siegel and joe shooster really created superman or did they........so BOYS OF STEEL BY MARC TYLER NOBELMAN has more info if your intrested.Anybody who likes superman,comics,create of process,and more.Possibly anyone could like this book.SO i would reccomend it.

  13. There he goes.He can lift cars,and can jump over buildings.
    One night of 1934 Jerry Siegel layed in his bed thinking of Superman.He ran over to a paper every two hours to write down his good idea.If you would like to read about Joe, and Jerry get the book Boys Of Steel,by Mark Tayler Noblem.Joe and Jerry faced problems.When DC took there comic and sold it for a lot of money,that they did not give to Joe and Jerry.Lateron they fought for money for sevral years.When they died DC was going to give them a lot of money.But they never lived to see it.Joe and Jerry were very brave men but shy.They both had a very good life. But next time you read Superman,think of Joe and Jerry,the creaters or Superman.
    I think from reading the book that little kids that like Superman should read this book.Why I that it is a good book is because this boook tells you about Superman and who relly made it and how it was created.

  14. He can leap tall buildings in a single bound. Have you ever wondered who created the Man of Steel?
    I loved the book because you could find out, in the book Boys of Steel by Marc Tyler Nobleman, how Jerry Siegal's [author] and Joe Shuster's [illustrator] Superman rose to glory. It will teach you about the ups and downs of their comic writing career. I think people of all ages would like this book about the creators of Superman.

  15. Have you ever wanted to make millions by just makeing a comic strip? I had mixed feelings about the book Boys Of Steel. One reason you should read this book is because it has a lot of excitment in it. The author Marc Tyler Nobleman put in that Jerry and Joe fought back for the money since they were not getting thier fair share of money. One reason why kids shouldn't read this book is because it is mostly about publishing and kids are not really into yhat kind of stuff. My last reason why kids shouldn't read this book is because it alltakes place in the past and usually kids like to read books that take place in the present because it could get boring to kids. Robert would like this book because he reads the morning comics in the paper sometimes.

  17. Did you know that D.C. comics did not create Superman?If you want to know who realy created Superman you shoud read Boy Of Steel byMark Nolbleman.There is an interesting part where a company bought the idea of superman for little money.This book is a little sad because at the endthe real creaters of superman die.adults and older kids would like Boys Of Steel because little kids would get confused and bored.

  18. Did you ever wonder what superheros can do, well if you read this book you can find out.
    One night in 1934 Jerry couldn't sleep. he was thinking of something real terrific. If you read the boys of steel you will find out what Marc Tyler Nobleman the author writes next. I think someone should read the Boys of Steel if they like superheroes, they would like this book. It talks a lot about superheroes and what they do. I think adults should read this book. It talks about publishers, and publishers are more interesting to adults than they are to kids. I think this book would be interesting for adults because it talks about a pulishers and publishers are boring for kids.

  19. I think Boys Of Steel is a good book for people who like comics and for people that like super man for people who are lerning about DC characters. The auther is Marc Tyler Nobleman and the book is Boys Of Steel.I think someome would want to read this book because it is about two people that make comics and they made the first comic book.They made super man and it was the first comic character to have his own series and was the first super hero. I would prable be a good book for a fourht or fith grade book but I think it would be confusing to some kids and some would not under stand it.sean.s park school

  20. Have you ever wondered who wrote the real, Supperman? Then this is the book for you.
    I think the book Boys of Steal by Mark Tyler Nobelman is an ok book, but there is some action. It was not interesting to me. The book was not my favorite book in the world, becauseit didn't hold my interest.
    The book Boys of Steal by Marc Tyler Nobelman would be a good book for people who like comics should read this book because this book is like a comic book.

  21. Would you believe that two men together make Superman in their shadow?One reson that some people like to read this book because you can be a Superman fan.Another reson would be that you love comics.One more reason would be that you love to read.This book would really make you laugh!I think alot of children would like this book because its writing about Superman and mostly everybody loves Superman-up up and away!

  40. This book reminds me of the while ago when some of the first superman comic books came out.This book is very interesting.It talkes about to best friends who create SUPERMAN!!!!!It is sooo cool when they make the very first superman comic book.One of the best friends is a great drawer an the other is a great illistrator. I would recomend this book to people who are interested incomic books about superman.

  42. Boys of steal


    I think this was great for young kids who like super man .Boys of steal is also trying to tell people who read this book that two heads are better than one .When people work together all sorts of things can happen you could pretend to be an astronaut and have to save your friend that’s trapped in outer space . When a writer an illustrator work together they can make an amazing book . I think this book told a good story and lesson I would recommend it for every one its great , fun , and exiting .

  43. I think this book is really good. It’s about two boys who don’t have any friends. So they wrote a comic book that took three years to write. The book was Super Man.

  44. Boys of Steel was a great book. It was really intresting how Ben and Jerry never gave up. It really influences kids to not stop going for their goals. Like I said before I loved this book.

  45. It tells how it started at the beginning. Boys of steel is a good book.Jerry is like a twin with Joe. They made Super man.
