Superman Fan Podcast Episode #139: An Imaginary Summer 2010, Part III: Superman, Matinee Idol!

The imaginary stories for this episode come from SUPERMAN 19, November / December 1942, published on September 4, 1942. The editor was Whitney Ellsworth. Jack Burnley drew the cover, which protrayed Superman carrying an automobile, without tires on its wheels, with a family aboard, running down the street. That’s road service, Superman style. This issue was reprinted in SUPERMAN ARCHIVES, vol. V.

Three of the issue’s four stories are featured:

CASE OF THE FUNNY PAPER CRIMES was written by Jerry Siegel, pencilled by John Sikela and inked by Ed Dobrotka. This story was also reprinted in SUPERMAN FROM THE THIRTIES TO THE EIGHTIES.

SUPERMAN’S AMAZING ADVENTURE, originally unnamed, but given a title for the Archive, was written by jerry Siegel and drawn by Leo Nowak. Since I don’t have a cupy of the SUPERMAN ARCHIVE, the plot for this story came from MIKE’S AMAZING WORLD OF DC COMICS at http://dcindexes.com.

SUPERMAN, MATINEE IDOL was written by Jerry Siegel, pencilled by Joe Shuster and inked by John Sikela. This story was also reprinted in SUPERMAN FROM THE THIRTIES TO THE EIGHTIES.
