"DC Indexes lists Swan as having drawn three "Superman" stories and one "Batman" before Superman #76. When the team-ups started in World's Finest Comics he was the initial artist. I suppose that means he was used on #76…"

"Although they certainly met in the Golden Age-- including a cameo with the Justice Society-- the early World's Finest team-ups were limited to the cover. Regular in-story team-ups did not begin in World's Finest until #71 (1954)."

Richard Willis replied to PowerBook Pete, the Mad Mod's discussion Anything, Everything, or Nothing At All
"Odd that they treated this 1952 team-up as a special event since they had been teamed-up in World's Finest for over a decade. Lois is such a challenge that it takes both to save her?"

I usually hop back on the boards every couple months. I'm usually buying my books in 2 large orders every six months so it makes it hard to follow some of the discussions since I haven't read the books yet.

This one is just about my first ever attempt to draw anything with a computer.  I used Photobucket doo-dads.
