"Letitia Lerner, Superman's Babysitter" is a comic book story by Kyle Baker, co-written with Liz Glass.

Publication history

The story originally appeared in DC Comics' parallel universe anthology Elseworlds 80-Page Giant #1 (June 1999). Baker drew, colored, lettered and, with Elizabeth Glass, wrote the 10-page story. DC destroyed all copies of the issue intended for the North American market after deeming some of the issue's contents unsuitable, though copies were still distributed in Europe.[1]

Collected editions

In May 2001 the story was reprinted in the Bizarro Comics hardcover (ISBN 1-56389-779-2). In April 2003 a softcover edition of Bizarro Comics (ISBN 1-56389-958-2) followed.
