World's Finest # 20, Winter, 1945


This issue's Burnley cover offers a rather tame example of the Man of Steel's much noted "super-douchery."

The terrible Toyman was another of Superman's long-lasting villains, this one lasting more than most and even being revived reinvented a few times.

Another important bit of postwar propaganda from this series below but they're getting a little preachy.

Possibly a leftover from another title, FOXHOLE SOLDIER is a one-off tale credited solely to Joe Simon, something that just didn't happen all that often during the Simon and Kirby years.

The Caped Crusader's adventure this issue is artistically courtesy of the easily recognizable Winslow Mortimer who was about to become a major cover artist for this title. Over the years, Win Mortimer also will end up drawing many of the PSA one-pagers in DC comics as well as quite a few romance and humor comics including STANLEY & HIS MONSTER and PLASTIC MAN. He would also do work for Marvel.
