Cover Date: April 1946
Cover Price: US $ 0.10

Issue Tagline: None.

Format: Color; Standard Comic Issue; 48 pages

Story Arc(s):    Add/remove story arcs to this issue

Synopsis:
None entered.

Reprinted/Collected in:
Adventures of Superboy (2010) HC vol. 01

Notes:
In some ways, this might be said to be the issue in which Adventure, at least partially, entered the Silver Age. Yes, it's only 1946, but here you really see the "problem with Superboy". He's positively an Earth 1-only character, and yet, here he is--after a seven-issue run in More Fun Comics--flying around 15 years before Earth 2 is even discovered.

On the other hand, the other heroes in this same issue are very clearly in their Earth 2 personas, otherwise indicating that we're still in the Golden Age.

Anyone who still believes "the Golden Age means Earth 2" would do well to examine DC's output in the mid-1940s, like this issue.
