ACTION COMICS (1938-) #337 (released May 1966) DC UNIVERSE INFINITE
While the infant Marvel was first introducing the Silver Surfer, and Daredevil was battling Spider-man, DC dared to be different with the above: Hobo / Rich Guy Superman Mystery!
Nuff Said on that one, but if you crave that “Marvel Style” teen age angst storyline instead, Action Comics delivered that as well with the Supergirl backfeature:
Wait, “Ant Man?” uh, er….nothing happening here, Mr. and Ms. Marvel Lawyer sirs and ma’ams….
Adventure Comics #306 (released March 1963) DC UNIVERSE INFINITE
Superboy faces reality turned mad in Smallville, in black and white only though!
(if you like, read the fabulous early Legion story in the back of this issue (in color!) for extra credit concerning the Legion of Substitute Heroes)
Daring New Adventures of Supergirl #3 (released 11/3/1982) DC UNIVERSE INFINITE
Part 3 of Supergirl’s battle with a weird cult in Chicago…I think?
And…a Lois Lane story continues in the back of the comic!!!
SUPERMAN’S PAL, JIMMY OLSEN (1954-) #135 (released January 1971) DC UNIVERSE INFINITE
“Evil Factory” The Jack Kirby 4th World Rollout of the early 1970’s in the pages of Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen continues! This time: a tiny bit of cloning around with Jimmy and Supes!!! PS: you may be surprised how many clones you are actually seeing on this cover!!!
SUPERMAN’S GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE (1958-1973) #11 (released June 1959) DC UNIVERSE INFINITE
THE LEOPARD GIRL OF THE JUNGLE! Lois decides to go “back to nature” before it was cool to do so!!
And…you’ll find it hard to resist reading this other additional Lois Lane story among many in this ancient issue!!!
Please consider sampling some or all of these classic Silver and Bronze Age wares, and let us know your thoughts! Feel free always to post favorite panels / scenes etc from these exciting, entertaining and imaginative tales.
And again, be sure keep an eye out for our twice a month Wednesday evening Listen A Longs of the classic 1940’s Superman Radio Show adventures (in the Watchalong aisle).
Up Up and Away!!!
