Superman House

The number one email we've gotten over the past few months is: What's happening with the Superman House?

And so, finally, a true update (and you can see more on Newsarama):

As some of you know, our goal was to raise $50,000 to work on the outside of the house. In the end, we raised $101,000. So work is now going on in the inside as well. It's just beautiful.

So let this be my invitation to all: On Saturday, July 11, 2009, in Cleveland, we'll have the official ribbon-cutting and unveiling of the redone Siegel house. The roof, the siding, the much has been done to this place. They even repainted it back to historic colors (honestly, I kinda liked the red and bright blue), but history won in this one. The only thing that made me crazy was the dark green trim. Green on Superman's house? A bunch of us screamed bloody kryptonite, but again, it's good to have the history. And from what I hear, we'll have a great showing by the Siegel family for the big unveiling. So if you're anywhere near Cleveland, hope you'll join us.

Finally, the one thing people really need to know is how much work the Siegel & Shuster Society put into this. We all helped raise the money, but they did all the heavy lifting. The people of Cleveland did that. We owe them forever for getting it done.

And finally, finally, based on the success of the Siegel house, we've actually turned our attention to a new cause. So now, if people go to (or on Facebook too), they'll see us raising money for City Year, an organization that my wife and I recently helped bring to Miami -- but is one of the premier service organizations around the world. It's like a Peace Corps for the United States and it empowers kids 17 - 24 years old. All we're asking is for people to give one dollar. Just one. Watch the video. (YouTube link)

So to all: thank you. The government never cared about the Siegel house. Politicians didn't care about it. It was the writing and art community that did this. And it proves to me, once again, why I believe in the heroes I believe in.

Hi Brad,
My name's Bill Meeks and I run a multimedia production company. I am going to be in Ohio the day of the ribbon-cutting ceremony on the Superman house and was wanting to shoot some video and maybe get an interview or two with people (such as you) who were involved. I will most likely post it on the company blog and pass links along to various online comic book sites.

I'd love to help promote the event and educate people about the house.

Thank you,
Bill Meeks
