The Machine That Made Superman: Jerry Siegel's Typewriter at Auction

Jerry Siegel’s portable typewriter used to create countless Superman stories is up for auction on ComicConnect.com!

“The early adventures—the very foundation of the Superman mythos—came to life from these typewriter keys. Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, Jimmy Olsen, x-ray vision and heat vision are just a few of the characters and powers that came out of this typewriter. It is the equivalent of having Da Vinci's paint brushes, Edison's wrench or Steve Jobs' first motherboard,” said Vincent Zurzolo, Chief Operating Officer.

Jerry Siegel used this portable typewriter during numerous trips between his Cleveland home and his DC publishers in New York City. While riding the rails, Mr. Siegel wisely spent his time crafting Superman stories with the Royal Portable Quiet DeLuxe he purchased in 1938.  Comic books, newspaper dailies and Sunday strips all jumped from the keys and into the imaginations of Superman fans around the world. Interestingly enough, other great writers like Hemingway and Ian Fleming used the very same model Royal Portable typewriter.

“One of the little known stories about Superman is that he owes a lot of his existence to this typewriter...I liked this typewriter so much that it was the only portable I ever had or used.” -- Jerry Siegel, 1995.

ComicConnect is also featuring much more from the Jerry Siegel Collection including his favorite suit, tie, and shirt as well as Superman sketches, scripts, and Sunday newspaper proofs.  Click here to view the entire collection or click here for the entire auction!
