Drunk Driver Smashes Through Action Comics #1 Fence Around Joe Shuster's Former Home

250px-Action_Comics_1Finally, we understand exactly why Superman seems to be so angry with a car on the cover of Action Comics #1.

For the second time in two years, someone has driven a car through the fence surrounding Joe Shuster's former home in Glenville, Cleveland.

It's not just any old fence, this fence is made up of  large metal plates that reprint the Superman story from Action Comics #1.

Seven pages have been destroyed or missing, as well as one one that explains the link between the creation of Superman by Siegel and Shuster and the local area.

Cleveland.com reports that Antwann Houston, 41, of Cleveland, has been charged with drink driving, leaving the scene of an accident and driving without a license.

This is the second time such an accident has occurred, with another car driving through the fence two years ago, the damage costing $2,600 to repair.
