“The Born Loser” Gives Shout Out to Superman Exhibit at Cleveland Public Library

Look! There in the Comics section of The Plain Dealer . . . 


In the Sunday, December 17, 2017 edition of The Plain Dealer, “The Born Loser,” comic strip gives a wonderful nod to the Superman exhibit now showing at the Cleveland Public Library, 325 Superior Avenue. The daily strip, which was created in 1965 by Art Sansom, is now created by his son Chip Sansom, who began assisting his father with the strip in 1989.

Since it’s opening on May 6, 2017, Superman: From Cleveland to Krypton, An Exhibit has been wowing exhibit goers of all ages, and why not? The exhibit, which includes more than 500 visual elements and 213 captions and descriptors, have allowed visitors to learn about Superman’s Cleveland roots and The Man of Steel’s far-reaching impact on popular culture world-wide. The original art from this particular “The Born Loser” strip will be donated to the permanent Superman collection, which continues to grow by leaps and bounds.

Superman: From Cleveland to Krypton, An Exhibit, which initially was to close at the end of December, has been extended to run until March 31, 2018.
