Author Bio: Brad Ricca

From Ricca's website

Brad Ricca lives in Cleveland, Ohio, which is where Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, creators of America's beloved superhero Superman, lived.

He conducted ten years of research on those two men and the history of Superman before publishing his findings in Super Boys: The Amazing Adventures of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster - The Creators of Superman. Since that publication in 2010, Ricca has been interviewed by just about everyone (the BBC, NPR, The Wall Street Journal, Comic-Con) about Superman and his creators. He also created a film in 2010 called Last Son telling the Superman creation story (meaning writing/drawing the character, not his origin story about Krypton and whatnot).

Before Super Boys, Ricca earned a PhD in English from Case Western Reserve University, and he published a book of poetry titled American Mastodon in 2009.
