DESCRIPTION
ow/white pgs; Sl.(A-1) small amount of color touch + right edge trimmed (great eye appeal)
classic Wayne Boring Superman sneak peek cover (3-4/49)
On the cover of this classic a young fan asks Superman "What were you like when you were a boy?" One can imagine the writers at DC asking themselves that very same question, and, lo and behold, a new title, character, and concept were born. Starting a trend of exploring the youthful days of several of their big-name heroes which would culminate with the original Teen Titans, this book was the spark that lit the fire which would find DC mining a younger, more-innocent demographic that could be weaned on tamer tales of adventure and slowly evolve into full-fledged adult comic book fans.


Artist Information

Wayne Boring is a legendary American comic book artist who's best known for his work on the Golden Age era of Superman and to this day is considered among the top fifty artists to make DC Comics great. Wayne began on the Superman comic strip and in the mid-1940s transitioned over to the main comic book title where he introduced such long standing pieces of canon as the Fortress of Solitude and Bizarro World. Boring would go on to create backgrounds on Hal Foster's Price Valiant from 1968 - 1972 and would draw several titles for Marvel Comics.
