Famous' Firsts - Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale

We've been lucky enough to have three or four legendary Superman tales that have been released over the last twenty years. One of those modern-day classics is Superman For All Seasons, by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale. The two creators have since made themselves a nice little cottage industry, working together to tell out-of-continuity stories from both Marvel and DC.

Their first work together was the reintroduction of The Challengers Of The Unknown to a post crisis world. Their eight issue mini-series is one of the lost gems from the 90's that doesn't get nearly enough recognition as it should. But isn't that always the Challengers' fate?

But you know what? This isn't a Challengers of the Unknown blog. Luckily for us Superman made an appearance in the second issue, giving the world its first published Superman work by Loeb and Sale.
