"The Book of Lies"

I received an advance copy today of Brad Meltzer's "The Book of Lies." A key element in the novel, which is scheduled for release Sept. 2, is the real-life slaying of Mitch Siegel, father of Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel. In his acknowledgments, Meltzer thanks Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster "for building something that has meant more to me than any other art form."

Meltzer, by the way, just won an Eisner at the San Diego Comic-Con International. He and artist Gene Ha won the Eisner for "best single issue" for their story, "Walls," in an issue of "Justice League of America." Congrats.
