The Boston Globe reviewed Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman:
"...reveals a whole new side of Superman—one both heroic and surprisingly touching"
"...a well-crafted afterword..."
"The illustrated section of Boys of Steel...is upbeat, entertaining, and informative...the afterword shows the shadow side of the great American dream. ...Nobleman is equally adept at both stories. Illustrator Ross MacDonald creates a strong visual counterpart... Together they do justice to their subjects' remarkable journey."
