K-Metal from Krypton

"The K-Metal from Krypton"
is one of the most important "lost" stories by the original creators of Superman
, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. Written and drawn in 1940, but never published, the story would have vastly altered much of the Superman mythos for the next 65 years. Aside from the early introduction of Kryptonite
, the issue would have disclosed Superman's secret identity to Lois Lane, leading to a completely different relationship in which the two worked together as a team. Thanks to the work of readers and fans, including writer Mark Waid and artist Alex Ross, original art and scripts are slowly being recovered, and the entire issue is being reproduced online
, with full color treatment and missing pages being replicated in Shuster's original drawing style.
