party Payson, Vice-President Time Warner 75 Rockefeller Plaza New York, NY 10019 Dear Mr. Payson, This will be one of the most difficult letters I've ever written and one I wish I didn't have to write. As you know, your friend and my brother, Joe Shuster, died on July 30. Joe and I were very close. Every week we talked on the phone. Back in the late 1940's and 1950's when Joe was struggling, I helped support him by sending him a weekly check so he could go on creating new ideas and hopefully sell them. My brother Frank knows this because he took over supporting Joe after I married in 1955. I was happy to do this because I loved him. Joe always assured me that I would be taken care of after his demise. I have just returned from Los Angeles .where I spent a very stressful two weeks arranging for Joe's funeral, disposing of the belongings in his apartment and trying to get the financial affairs in order. In going through his papers I was shocked to learn that Joe did not only not have much money in the bank but that he had almost $20,000 in credit card debts and unpaid bills (copies of bills enclosed). He only had one active bank account at Security Pacific National Bank with $23,773 in it, in which he received his direct deposit checks from Time Warner. I do not have access to his account until the legal things are settled while the 20% interest continues to accrue on his credit card debt. I could not find any other assets except two dormant bank accounts with $167 and $11 in them. I thought Joe might have had a small life insurance policy through his pension to pay his final debts and expenses. .• Unfortunately, he did not. As heir to his Will, I am responsible for paying off his credit card debts, along with any bills that will be coming in and forwarded to me-utilities, half month's rent, unknown credit debts, legal fees, etc. Today I received another bill from the County Coroner. Thankfully, Paul Levitz said Time Warner would\cover it. I find myself in a financial plight. How could Joe Shuster end up with an estate of almost nothing? And what if more debt and bills come in? His estate may not even be able to cover it. It's bad enough to lose a family member with whom you are close but it's devastating when they leave a burden of large unpaid debts and bills which the estate can barely cover. On top of this, my son and I had great expenses flying out to California, staying at a motel, renting a car, etc. My husband and I are of modest means. We live on my husband's modest pension and this was very expensive for us. In addition, we still don't know how much the legal fees will be. The estate may not cover it at all.

This is very embarrassing for me to have to write to you this way. It's unbelievable to me that Joe could have so little considering the

generosity shown by Time Warner in raising the pension income of Siegel and Shuster. Through his 1991 tax return and 1992 pay memos, I found out he was receiving $2,627 twice a month after withholding or $63,000 a year after taxes. I had my son itemize Joe's 1992 checks and bank statements to see where his money went. We've been able to account
for most of his checks. From January of 1992 to the middle of JUly, we

found he wrote almost $31,000 in checks, plus there are other checks still unaccounted for. In a little over six months, he spent everything he took in. Almost $1,500 a month went for rent. Almost $500 for utilities. We also found that over $1,200 a month was being paid to Joanne Siegel for some kind of commission for including him in the pay raise. It appears that for quite a few years, she has been taking 20% of his income as an agent's commission for getting pay raises for Siegel and Shuster. All of this consumed about $3,200 a month. The rest went for groceries (home delivered), personal and health items, and lots of clothes and stereo systems that filled his large apartment from floor to ceiling which he gave to charity at the end. Joe was very generous. He likedto spend on himself and he liked to give things away. In Joe's interview by a reporter from the Toronto Star who came to Joe's apartment, he wrote, "Ohe corner of his apartment is jammed with stereo components--three turntables, several tapedecks, and a dozen high-power speakers--that will be donated to the visually impaired." This must have cost thousands of dollars. Yet, when I came to his apartment, more equipment had been bought and every room was jamm-packed from floor to ceiling full of stereo components and speakers. This time he promised this to the Music Department of the Los Angeles Valley College. When they came to take the equipment, they showed me a letter authorizing them to get it for this good cause. This equipment must have cost thousands and thousands of dollars. He also had every closet stuffed full of jackets and clothes piled everywhere. Joe's ladyfriend admitted to me how generous he had been to her and her son. Her son is a psychology professor and I asked if he could tell me why Joe spent so much money. He said thatJoe was a compulsive buyer triggered by years of deprivation, so when he had a chance, he went on shopping sprees. He was also very generous and gave when he heard there was a need. I am glad Joe spent the last years of his life happy. Joe Shuster was a kind, generous, and creatively brilliant man. He made great contributions to this world. Unfortunately, Joe left his family with a crushing burden of unpaid debts and bills and only a tiny estate to cover it. Joe did not like to deal with business. And now he has put a terrible burden on me which

I know he never intended. The kindness and generosity of Warner Communications and now Time Warner has been demonstrated in the past. Any help that
Time Warner could give to the family of Joe Shuster to pay his final debts and expenses would be warmly appreciated at this time of mourning. The Shuster family looks forward to seeing you at the memorial service on September 24.

11928 Darlington Ave Apt. 102 Los Angeles, CA 90049 May 27, 1986

Dear Joe, Your commission check to me dated May 15, 1986, which we thought had gotten lost in the mail, finally arrived. As you have given me another check to replace this one, I am returning this one to you as you requested on the phone. To avoid future confusion, please make a notation in your checkbook that this one was returned to you. Enclosed also are 3 copies each of the two documents you requested as a favor to you,( I made a special trip to have these xeroxed for you). One document is dated April 21, 1979 and the other March 23,1983, covering your agreement to pay me 20% of all bonuses and /or increases in lifetime income from D.C. Comics and/or Warner Communications which I have secured (and shall in the future secure) on your behalf. I hope these copies will be helpful to you. From now on, would you please mark your commission checks to me,"Re: percentage fee for income increase negotiation", or if applicable, "Be: percentage fee for bonus", rather than putting the inaccurate "manager's commission", or "agent's commission", as you have in the past?

This will accurately state that I only negotiate bonuses and income increases for you on your lifetime income, and do not seek employment for you.
garmest regards.

As ever,

Joanne Siegel P.S. I will go to the W.L.A. postoffice to mail this with signed receipt requested to make sure your enclosed check and the documents reach you safely.

Jean Shuster Peavy 316 Horton Lane NW Albuquerque NM 87114 Dear J I'm sorry to have taken a few weeks to reply to your letter of July 10th, but as you may know, summer is comic convention time as well as vacation time, and our offices are both deserted and chaotic during this season. As I hope you recall from our meetings in New York, we've done extensive research into the copyright act and any potential rights that you and Frank may have as Joe's siblings and survivors. It is our firm conviction based on that research and expert counsel, that you don't have any legal rights or claims whatsoever. Nonetheless, we do recognize the fact that Joe would want you to benefit from his great creativity and we have acted accordingly. As you know, Joe's agreement with Warner Communications (and thereby Time Warner and DC) only required us to pay $5,000 a year to Frank after Joe's death. During the 16 years that agreement was controlling, Joe did not ask us to increase that amount. After his death, we raised $5,000 to $25,000 a year without any legal obligation to do so, in deference to Joe's memory and your role in his life. When you asked us to raise the amount to gross you up for what seemed to be an unlikely effect of taxes, I promised that we would review the effect of the taxes on you after you had experienced the IRS's effect on a year of the income. In the spring, when you and Frank have filed your taxes, I'll happy to examine your situation in detail and we'll discuss the results of our examination with you. In the meantime, we are not prepared to consider your request that you receive the same income that Jerry and Joanne Siegel arc receiving. Perhaps Joe would have wanted that, but during his long relationship with us he gave no indication of that desire. And even if he had, in fairness, there is a vital difference between being the actual co-creator of Superman and being his surviving family. Jerry and Joe were, in every way, in a class by themselves. We are, however, pleased that the launch on September 12th of the new Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman television series will give a new generation a new chance to fall in love with Jerry's and Joe's wonderful creation, In celebration of that

Paul Levitz Executive Vice President & Publisher DC COMICS 1325 Avenue of the Americas New York, N.Y. 10019 Dear Paul: I am planning to come into N.Y. to visit with my brother Frank the first two weeks of May. We hope you will, be in town at that time so we can come in and visit with you. As you had suggested awhile back we are sending you a copy of our tax returns. Perhaps you and Marty Payson will be able to examine them before we come in to see you. We hope you will make the adjustment to a higher income to cover our tax loss. I have it summarized on the Statement of Earning and Deductions sent by the Time Warner payroll office. If you could consider also including a cost of living increase as is done for employees, we would be most grateful. Frank and I want you to know that we appreciate very much your past generosity. It was a delightful surprise for us to receive the bonus of $25,000 for the LOIS & CLARK SHOW. That was a wonderful gesture. Also, we have not forgotten how you picked up Joe's debts to get us through. that stressful period. Our need for requesting extra money is mostly to help our two children and three grandchildren. Joe was very fond of his nephew, Warren, now 32, and neice, Dawn, now 28. He was generous to them while he was alive. They were like his own children since. he had none of his own. Our daughter depends upon us to help her financially since she is now divorced and struggling to raise three kids on a low income. With the extra income you send us we are able to pay her big dental bills, buy necessary appliances and just helped her to buy a small car as her old one broke down. She needs it to get to work. Our son lives at home with us, not married. He is a research health journalist. He co-authored the book with my husband SUPER NUTRITION GARDENING. He is now working on his second book covering the field of health and longevity. He spends most of his time at the New Mexico Medical Tethrary to'get his facts. His dream is to have a Health Spa, in the Caribbean Islands or elsewhere, to teach people how to prevent illness by following the advice of what has been found in medical research. We would like to help

2 him realize his dream which would be of so much value to many people. From the income you send us we are hoping to be able to build the Health Spa and participate in it as well. Unless we can find a sponsor for this we need to save and save until we are able to act upon it. That is the reason we Were so bold as to ask for more money as we have a goal. You said that Joe never personally asked for anything more for us after his death. That's because Joanne handled all of the business and he paid her generously to be his agent. Joe realized he had no business sense of his own. He was an artistic genius, all right brain. Joanne just never thought to ask for more for us after Joe's demise although she knew how close Joe was to his family. It was an oversight on her part. She knew where Joe's heart was when it came to his family. He was very devoted to all of us. He would have wanted us to be included in some of the fruits of the labor of the creation of SUPERMAN. Frank and I were there at its creation and were the first to ever see SUPERMAN on paper and get excited about this character. Hundreds of millions of people have witnessed what Joe and Jerry's character SUPERMAN stood for, truth, justice and the American way. SUPERMAN is still the moral example for both children and adults in an age where morality seems to be taking a back seat. He is an American hero. We hope that the co-creator's family can continue to benefit from the standards of justice set up in the character of SUPERMAN. Can Frank and I make an appointment with you for either Mon., May 2nd, or Tue., May 3rd? Anytime in the afternoon would be fine. Please set a date and phone or fax me at my no. here in Albuq. We'll be there. We look forward to seeing you again. It would be nice to see Jenette again during our visit. Frank and I have not met Marty Payson as I don't remember him being at the memorial service for Joe. It would be nice to meet him, if it was possible. Until our next visit, Very sincerely, "ft 4 Jean Shuster Peavy

P.S. I was going through. my files of my early days of our Shuster family life and came across this article from the SATURDAY EVENING POST. I made a copy which I am enclosing as I thought that you and the others might enjoy reading it, If you haven't already seen it.

July 11, 1994 Jean Shuster Peavy • 316 Horton Lane NW Albuquerque NM 87114 Frank Shuster 98-120 Queens Boulevard Apartment 4K Rego Park NY 11374 Dear Jean and Frank: It was nice to have you visit in May, and I'm pleased to see that you're both well I've finally had an opportunity to discuss your various requests with my colleagues, and would like to share our feelings with you. While we have a great deal of personal sympathy for your desire to take care of Joe's nephew, niece and her family as you would have hoped (or expected) Joe to respond had he lived, we can't accept that as our corporate responsibility. We have acted in what we believe is a fair and decent, even generous, manner to you beyond our contractual obligations to you both in the spirit of our agreement with Joe. While he may have been willing to go even further, we can't act in his stead. We must, therefore, decline to either raise your annual stipend by the eight or nine thousand dollars you requested or to add an ongoing cost of living formula. We are willing, however, to share the good fortune that Superman brings us with the family of his creators. We're pleased to acknowledge our pick-up for a second season of LOIS & CLARK: THE NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN (which happened the day you came in) with the c.iiclosed bonus check for $10,000. On behalf of the DC, Warner Bros. and Time Warner team, we want you to feel Joe's genius is remembered and honored. I hope that other occasions will arise in future years which we will find suitable for material acknowledgement that can assist your family, but we cannot promise to do more than consider them as they may occur. Wishii both continued health and happiness,
