Rather than burdening @Applejack and her much appreciated Office Hours (a standout as some of the best customer service ever in the history of customer service), I’m going to throw this one to @HubCityQuestion (who, ironically, given the name, has proven time and time again to have all the Answers).
I’m curious as to what the deal is with the “By special arrangement with the Jerry Siegel family” in the book credits when Superman is featured? I took a long sabbatical from comics and returned with the advent of DCU and MU on tablets to find this added credit. I assume it’s a legal issue, but I was curious if there is an interesting story behind it nonetheless.
I suppose I could Google it, but, hey, the forums are fun here! Thank you!
