A Look At The Superman Stamps

This year, to celebrate Superman’s 75th Birthday, Canada Post released a series of stamps featuring Kal-El through the ages.  This birthday became an event for the Canadian government because the artist who co-created Superman, the late Joe Shuster, hails from Toronto.

Here are my pictorial essay all about the stamps, which I proudly own.
