Don't know if anyone has mentioned this here before- I couldn't find anything in the Links area of STTA about it but I apologize if this is old news!

You can view many of the episodes from Superman's 1940s newspaper strip online at a wonderful website... several of the sequences are available from start to finish, and there are Sundays there as well. Even the story of Superman rescuing Santa Claus from enslavement by Hitler! No kidding.

That's an absolutely incredible find!  Thank you for the heads-up, I'll certainly be adding links to the site.

Anyone have any idea when the story in which Clark revealed his identity to Lois and they got married was published?

I'm glad you all like my site.  It's really starting to take shape in the past few weeks as I have more time to spend on it these days.  Currently I am working through indexing the daily strips from 1948 to 1950, and there are some really interesting stories (the Ogies come back, for example).  I also have a lead on the rest of the 1943 Sunday strips.

Please let me know if any of you can assist my research with information about the strips or knowledge of other sources to continue the project...

Thanks again,
Jared

S!


I've heard about this story...and something about how much later it turned out all to be a dream or something?  I am way too young to have read these strips when they came out (I guess I could have read World's Greatest Superheroes...but for some reason I didn't).  These strips are a fascinating read, and this story is just one more example about why attention should be given to them.

Anyways, I have yet to come across it.  I have read a full decade of the dailies (3,000 strips so far), and am now fully into the Wayne Boring era. I would bet it would be sometime in the mid-fifties, but my predictions have been wrong everytime I made a guess about the strips so far Smiley  The stories keep me surprised at every turn...

I'll be sure to let you know if the story appears in the next 18 months that I have yet to read (then it's back to tracking down or begging others for more of the strips).

I'll keep updating the site.
Thanks.
