Always a treat to read a NEW oldie but goodie although I could see this one coming a universe away.  Nice to see some Plastino too! Smiley

Man, another fine story, sure its filled with some questionable historical references, but its ironic, simple, and tells a tale of time travel paradoxes that a kid can remember... :wink:

Al Plastino rules! Sadly he is many times overlook for the big three, even though I think he is one of the very best. If you all would look at your favorite Superman stories and some of the most important, you might be suprise just how many were drawn by Al Plastino.

The following is just my opinion, but, because, as part of the charm of that era and too oft abandoned...Supes being attributed with super intellect took a back seat in story lines to him trying (this time out of loyalty to Lori) and having the results being learned by the reader (kids) and Superman AT THE SAME TIME...a joint resolution of the mystery...a way of bonding reader and character, especially readers of a young age.

I also think that a kid questioning some lines of outcomes in a good story led to them learning more about the real world for themselves...I'll take that over the "super continuity" of the post-Weisinger grand DC universe anyday... :lol:

I truly dig Al Plastino myself...

A spoiler for the ending:



SPOILER IS COMING!


...




Anyone know if this is the first story with travel between parallel Earths?

If so, it would mean that not only did Jerry Siegel create Superman, he created the entire DC multiverse.
