America’s Favorite Adventure-Strip Character!
SUPERMAN Vol.1, No.24, September 1943; Cover Art: Jack Burnley Writer: Don Cameron; Penciler: Ed Dobrotka Inker: Ed Dobrotka
Behind this patriotic cover, Superman indulges his thespian aspirations with Lois playing damsel in distress in a melodrama starring the Man of Steel himself. Next, Clark and Lois are introduced to “Crackpot Lane,” where some of the wackiest inventions to fight the war are hidden; spies based in a sanitarium are often the crazy creations for their own nefarious use. Then, when Superman has to appear at Lois’ surprise birthday party for Clark, he hires a double, unaware that he’s hired a criminal. Finally, Superman must stop an Axis plot to strategically leverage the Arctic as an aerial route.
