COMIC SECTION of the San Francisco Chronicle, December 8, 1940

* Superman (color comic strip) - #58
* 2nd year of publication
* Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster


This is a second year printing of the "Superman" color comic strip (by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster), which began in limited newspapers (through the McClure Newspaper Syndicate) on November 5, 1939 (a daily, black & white comic began on January 16). The weekly color Superman strip had a story-line continuity which was separate from the daily comic. At its peak the color comic appeared in 90 Sunday papers with a readership of over 90 million.
Inside is Superman strip #58 with the artwork by Joe Shuster. Included is not just the Superman strip by the entire 16 page color comic section of the San Francisco Chronicle dated Dec.8, 1940, containing many color comics.
Small binding holes and a little wear along the spine, generally nice.
