Funny thing about this cover, it was on the newsstand around the
same time my Mother got her very first refrigerator. We had always
had an Ice Box up until then.

Never thought I'd ask this about Superman but what is he doing with his finger? I do not understand the gag here at all.

@Badger - Back in the old days, before they had self-defrosting freezers, ice would build up around and below the freezer section. Lois is holding a hammer that she was going to use to try to break off the ice. Supes is like hey, I’ll just chip it off with my super-pinkie!
At least, that’s what it looks like to me.

Before I bought my first BATMAN and SUPERMAN, I bought this
CAPTAIN MARVEL ADVENTURES #34 in April 1944.

Building a collection wasn't easy...so many titles only lasted for
two or three issues. I spent an awful lot of time searching the
newsstands for issues that never existed...but it was fun!

According to Overstreet, this Four-Color #190 FLASH GORDON is only
the fifth Flying Saucer comic book story...I guess that's why I
bought two copies.

@martymann - I used to have a few Doll Man comics from the 1950’s. They were by Quality Comics and had amazing covers. I can remember one issue had the Human Bomb on the cover. All the Quality Comics had great covers - Blackhawk and Plastic Man, for example.

One of the more unusual SuperHero transformations.
"By touching the strange birthmark on his wrist, Lance Gallant
can merge with the spirit of his dead twin brother Michael to
form the indomitable CAPTAIN TRIUMPH!
WOW!

Wow is right, Marty! Kind of morbid and sweet at the same time.

With THE FLASH, THE HAWKMAN, THE ATOM, THE BLACK CANARY and
THE GHOST PATROL...this is really worth the re-read.

I remember seeing this cover before and thinking that WAS the Spirit. Thanks for setting me straight, Marty.
