"I should have asked this before, but is it considered dirty pool to look up the stories? I would have tried to answer the all the questions off the top of my head, but I didn't do so well."

"6) Excellent catch by those who thought of Sunboy: in Adventure #302, Cosmic Boy, putative leader,addresses Sun Boy as "Dirk Morgna" one panel before CB tells him that he must be expelled; it happens on page 5 of the story in 302, and on…"

"SPOILER ALERT  The really weird thing about that picture is that Superboy's image was lifted from the cover of Adventure 318, which in turn was, I believe, taken from Superboy 105, in which red kryptonite gave him 5 fingers and a thumb on…"

Welcome to the Comics Round Table,

Glad you are still here.I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( mrs.katekwame5@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.


Kate Kwame.
