Let's start the week with a finish of Superman #13, which had a character that made me pause:
Green Arrow, is that you?
Turns out it was "the Archer," which is a very descriptive name but not much pizzazz. He's more interesting because he certainly looks like Green Arrow
WHO.... true story, first appeared in More Fun Comics #73, which was the November, 1941 issue.
This issue of Superman? November, 1941.
Mind. Blown. Right?
I'll let you absorb that for a moment.
Okay. Moving on:
Well, that sure went from "official police business" to "release it all to the media" rather quickly. The Fourth Estate had some considerable sway over law enforcement in Metropolis.

And so begins the never-ending cycle of Lois getting in trouble and Jimmy being only slightly helpful by barely keeping Lois alive until Superman shows up:
And then we had this:
Insert your own Walter James Palmer, DDS joke here. We like to keep it topical here at CMNS!
Let's leave today with a cheap gag, shall we?
It was at that moment that Lois decided to give up finding dates on Craigslist.
See you tomorrow!
