1st Appearance of SUPERBOY anywhere - As more newspaper syndicates signed up for the popular SUPERMAN Sunday comics page in their papers, it was necessary to explain the Origin of this amazing hero to an ever growing audience. So on May of 1942 McClure published a newer, more comprehensive Origin story of Superman but this time showed a young Super-Boy growing up with his powers.
In a two panel sequence we see Superboy bringing justice to a bully and racing against a locomotive. The idea of Superman as a boy with super powers never was conceived or considered before. It was not until the Winter of 1944 that DC experimented by expanding on this concept of Supermanís youth and ran the very first Super-Boy story in MORE FUN COMICS #101 (January 1945), eventually making him a super-hero complete with costume...... Also in this amazing Origin story we are told of his Telescopic and X-Ray vision.... Back side is a complete Winnie Winkle adventure..... The Condition of this page is High grade and the paper quality is Superior.... With Early Superman comic books reaching world record prices, these Sunday pages are an extremely good buy, with this particular issue being of extreme importance..... Why this is so Rare: Due to the very fragile nature and large size of the early Sunday pages, very few survived over the years. Unlike comic books these Sunday pages had no thick higher quality covers to protect them. Even a single day of exposure to sunlight would ruin them, and nearly every young boy would tack them to their walls at home, or cut them up for scrapbooks. Consequently, this Sunday page is truly a Rare item today
