Canadian Superman stamp previews Friday
Canada Post will be issuing a stamp next month to honour the iconic comic book hero, Superman.
While the stamp will be issued September 10th, people attending the comic convention, Fan Expo Canada in Toronto, will get a sneak peak at the stamp tomorrow.
Canada Post says it will produce a limited series of five Superman stamps which will each depict the artwork from various eras.
Superman was unveiled in 1938and the stamps are to commemorate the 75th anniversary.
The superhero was the brainchild of Jerry Siegel and Toronto-born artist Joseph Shuster.
Shuster has said that he had used his home town and a newspaper of the time, the Toronto Daily Star as the inspiration for the fictional city of Metropolis and the newspaper The Daily Planet which employed Superman's alter ego Clark Kent.
