Adventure Comics # 189, June, 1953

Still several years away from the debut of the "real" SUPERGIRL, here's the latest of many tales of Clark's female friends getting super-powers. This one MAY be the first to use the term, "Girl of Steel," later associated with Supergirl.

Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis were absolutely huge in 1953--starring in nightclubs, on radio, in movies and on television. When they broke up a few years later, Jerry got custody of the comic book.

Adventure Comics # 188, May, 1953

A relatively dull Superboy story came for this cover but the other three series all had great splashes this time around. TH GREEN ARROW story featured here is yet another Batman and Robin style piece but done very well.

Adventure Comics # 187, April, 1953

This issue's cover story's writer is unknown--to me at least--but the story of Superboy's visit to the 25th century is similar in some ways to the later tales of his visits to the Legion of Super Heroes' 30th century.
