Action Comics Weekly begins

So it was twenty three years ago today when Superman took a sideline role in his inaugural title. For the next nine months or so, he would only appear in a two-page serial strip in each issue. It's not necessarily one of the highlights of Action Comics' storied 70+ year run, but it featured art by Curt Swan so it was at least pretty to look at.

Here's a shot from that first issue, with Superman getting ready to take action!

Script by Roger Stern
