Superman may be viewed as cinematic damaged goods these days, but the same can’t be said about his co-creator, Joe Shuster – His mob-funded bondage art past is about to become the subject of a major motion picture.The Gotham Group has picked up the movie rights to Craig Yoe’s wonderful Secret Identity: The Fetish Art of Superman‘s Co-Creator Joe Shuster, which reveals Shuster’s work on the controversial BDSM underground comic series The Nights of Terror from the 1950s, during a time where he had become estranged from Superman’s publisher DC Comics. The comics – which feature lookalikes of Superman, Lois Lane and Lex Luthor in various scenes of S&M play – were named as an inspiration behind a crime spree of the era that involved murder, torture and humiliation of victims.
