DC's entire output this month featured only a single panel with a costumed superhero. I don't think they knew what they had yet.
Can't give all the Action love to Superman, especially if he's going to appear exactly ONCE in costume in a 13-page story which basically features Clark Kent disguised as a miner... The superhero genre wasn't quite set, folks! So instead, enjoy this panel from a Zatara story, the Master Magician who would go on to beget everyone's favorite fishnet-wearing magic act/Justice Leaguer. Zatara premiered at the same time Superman did, only a few pages short of being DC's first "superhero".
It's all fun and games until Slam Bradley's sidekick shorty accidentally flies an experimental rocket into a high rise and snaps it in half! No wait, it's still fun and games after this point, according to Slam's jocularity and four-star review of the event - "Splendid!"
Comics back in the day sometimes doubled as celebrity mags for the kids expected to spend their dimes on it. This issue also had a "Sports Dust" page which did the same for athletes. The issue below uses "Cinema Dust" instead. Talk about dusting off the same old concept again and again! (Yes, that's terrible.)
Oh geez, these Yellow Peril types sure don't mess around! Dale may be the star of this strip, but she always finds a way to be its damsel in distress as well!
Hey, when do we actually start counting down to Batman's first appearance?
