I've been thinking for a while of doing some reviews of pre-Silver Age features, covering their whole runs or periods within their runs. "Pre-Silver Age Reviews" reviews would be a clumsy title for a thread, so I've titled it "Golden Age Reviews" instead, although I'll be including features from the 50s.

 

I've done a couple of reviews along these lines previously in the "What Comic Books Have You Read Today?" thread, so I'll start by reposting those.

15/05/15 I've changed the title to "Golden Age and Transition Era Feature Reviews", as I've started another thread, here, for issue reviews.

Here's the Wyoming Kid on the cover of World's Finest Comics #42 (1949) with Superman and Batman. He appeared in the title from #42-#64.

The GCD credits Superman here to Wayne Boring and Stan Kaye, Batman and Robin to Win Mortimer, and the Wyoming Kid to Howard Sherman. I can buy Sherman did the Kid, but Superman and Batman look like they were done by the same artist, or at least the same inker: they have the same chin shadow. Compare #26, which the GCD attributes to Jack Burnley and Charles Paris.

Since the Wyoming Kid was set in the Old West, I guess Superman, Batman and Robin took one of Professor Nichols' "trips" again!
