When we closed out last week, I was hopeful that maybe this time out we’d start to get some answers. Let’s find out if all that hopin’ was in vain!
Before we get into it, however, I wanna share a recent discovery. Generally speaking, I consider myself a detail oriented fella… somehow, I missed the fact that something happens between issues #618 and #619 of Action Comics Weekly. Here, take a look:
So, yeah… the logo scoots over to the left, the issue number and price pops over to the right, and the DC “Bullet” is now partially under the logo itself!

I’ve often joked that Superman-day is kinda like my “day off”. I’ve also joked that I almost feel guilty doing such “light duty” every Monday… but, this? I mean… this could have been done in two panels, much less two pages. What an absolute waste!
I’ve got nothing more to say… I’m sorry!
Tomorrow: The Final Catwomaning!
