My lovelies, it's good to be back! I know it seems like I wasn't gone, but that's because I had my posts finished a week in advance. I had a health situation that landed me in the hospital for a couple of days and I'm just now starting to get life back to normal.
Enough of that. Time to check out Superman #11, which had the first appearance of x-ray vision!
I have been told that the original text may have read "x-ray eyesight." This panel is from The Superman Archives, so maybe it was changed? It wouldn't be the first time stuff was altered to fit modern lore, although I kinda wish they wouldn't do that. When I read a reprint, I want the original experience.
Mind you, they changed the name of "x-ray eyesight" in the reprint but didn't touch this goober:
To be fair, I'm sure snakes are far easier to draw than scorpions.
And now, The Adventures of Superman, Kleptomaniac:
This has been The Adventures of Superman, Kleptomaniac!
Check out this ad for All-Flash Quarterly:
"A Fit Companion to Superman and Batman."
So, are we still talking about the comic? I mean, the Flash was certainly a fit guy, what with all the running and such. It sounds like Jay was their butler who did a lot of calisthenics.
See you tomorrow!
