Adventure Comics #126 - March 1948

Comics Weekend "The Man in the Iron Shoe!" by Don Cameron and John Daly.

It's Adventure Sunday!

Aquaman investigates a series of criminal suicides...could there be more to the story?
The gang of Botoxed crooks walk toward Aquaman, but he jumps back into the water. A couple of the crooks, dressed in scuba gear, chase after him, but of course they are no match for the Sovereign of the Seas!

Aquaman then heads back to finish the job:
...and so ends another adventure with Aquaman!

I loved this story--a completely crazy, unnecessarily-complicated plan, Aquaman firing a gun, plus a character named "Snatch Uzell." He definitely needs to come back...

Boy, did Bill Finger have a finger in that story?

Nice aversion to the opening "lots of suicides" panels (though yes, figured they likely weren't dead, even for this era's storytelling).

Re: Superboy: Superboy nabs a criminal posing as a substitute teacher with help from his students. Apparently the story was written partially in rhyme (the story's titled "Superboy: Crime-Fighting Poet"). Nothing to do with kids putting together a puzzle...

Viva Adventure Sunday!

So, when exactly did the Earth-2 Sea Sleuth swear to never kill or maim a prisoner? And is ol' Blackjack considered exempt? Sounds like there's an untold tale to be told here.
