As mentioned in this thread, here is the original "How Superman Ends the War" 2-pager as it was published in Look Magazine back in February, 1940.  I've also included the one page intro article which, as far as I know, has never been reprinted:

Awesome!

What a great find, and I like it better with that odd but cool color printing than the other version.

Thanks!

Check out the new cover I made, using this one as a source.

I know I should probably comment on the social and historical significance of this particular story, but I just can't help but notice that Superman isn't wearing any pants! :shock:

Now we know why DC re-colored this thing.

Yeah, Supes in shorts is a little unnerving... Cool

Cool to see the coloring though...

Everything is beautiful!  I would never have guessed the cover was improved.  Great work!  I love the whole article --the pandering tone, the great photos.  The whole thing just goes to prove, 65 years later we still like our fantasy raw!

Quick question: did Supes ever go up against Joe Stalin again?  During the Cold War, say?  (He's not in the TGSB)
