Seeking syndication (and eventually, vindication)

This 12/7/33 articlette from the Glenville Torch, the high school newspaper of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, fixes a date to their efforts to syndicate a comic strip, though 1933 is not necessarily the first year they tried:


In any case, this date predates the creation of the Superman we know today; though alleged timelines do vary, I believe Jerry first dreamed and Joe first drew him in the summer of 1934.

Once in a lifetime indeed.
