In the previous post, I described my reaction to reading the previous issue of Action Comics. The main story was a two part Superman story. This post is about the next issue, which contained the conclusion of that story.
After an excruciatingly long month, it was time for the conclusion of the tale I read weeks earlier. Action Comics #435 showed an obviously infuriated Superman crushing a globe of the Earth (or was it the Earth itself?). The cover exclaimed, “Look out Earth! It’s Doomsday when Superman screams… ‘I Want to Wreck the World!’”.
I had to buy the issue anyway, but if there had been any doubt in my mind, this cover would certainly remove it! Luckily for me, this was just a two-part story and the sweet resolution did come within those pages.
The “backup” story was, again, one starring The Atom and it was entitled, “The Unmasking of the Atom”. It was very enjoyable as I had begun to expect they always were.
The Superman tale was penned by Cary Bates and the one starring The Atom was done by Elliot S! Maggin.
Without even knowing what would be in store for me in the next issue, I did know that in another month, a copy of it would be coming home with me!
I was falling in love with comic books and didn’t realize it. I guess love works like that a lot of the time.
