Tales From The Quarter Bin--Superman Family Headlines!!

For no particular reason--just because they amused me--here are the titles of all the stories from Superman Family #209 (1981):

Linda Danvers gets a job as a soap opera actress--and quells a mysterious riot at Yankee Stadium!

Clark Kent's first boss--George Taylor, former editor of the Daily Star--is murdered because he knows Superman's secret identity! (No tricks-he did know, and he does die! Earth-2 was a brutal place, kids...)

Uhhh....there's a bust...on a bus!! Way to go, Clark Kent!!

Oh, Lois, always sensationalizing your headlines to try and get that Pulitzer!!

Jimmy Olsen's date finds a real diamond ring in a Crackerjack Krispy-Snax box!! Hilarity (and crime!) ensue...

52 pages!! For $1!! And no ads!! Those were the days...

Nice Meatloaf reference.

Unintentional (on my part)...but who knows if that's what Martin Pasko had in mind...

I actually thought you were going for a Firesign Theater "Nick Danger" reference.

"Why, that's nothing but a two-bit ring from a Crackerback jox!"
