Continuing our celebration of DC Comics’ 75th Anniversary, this episode features WORLD’S FINEST COMICS 71, July/August 1954, published around May 27, 1954. This issue featured the first team-up of Superman and Batman in that title. It was not their first team-up in comics, and their original team-up happened even earlier, in the Superman radio show.
For a more detailed history of the Superman – Batman team go to Bill Jourdain’s GOLDEN AGE OF COMICS podcast, episode 58, August 24, 2008: http://goldenagecomics.org/wordpress/2008/08/24/golden-age-of-comic-books-august-24-2008-58/.
Next episode: THE DAILY PLANET, THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 1973!
