Isn't this the story where Superman reveals his identity to JFK, and the President masquerades as Clark Kent? I remember reading that issue around the time Kennedy was assassinated, and getting all choked up.

WOW. That must have been quite an experience to have to go through.

Thanks for posting that.

Wow, that Adventure 247 in 9.4 is a freak of nature. Love the Bethlehem pedigree !

Here is my humble copy of 247......

I know what happens in this issue, but I can't help feeling outraged on Superboy's behalf every time I see this cover.

Great books. That's the first time I ever saw Adv 290 . Do you have a 247 ?

No, sadly not that one. I'd actually be content with just having a #267.

Yes. When I sold off my SA DCs some years ago, the only books I kept were my Legion books (Adventure, JO, Superman, Action).

Nice books. It`s always been a huge source of frustration that after all these years, I`ve still only been able to acquire one of the sub-300 Adventure Legions. :frustrated:

Who's the blond girl holding Supes's hands?? No wonder Lana's mad.

Wise. The Mort Weisinger comics weren't fetching nearly as much as the Julius Schwartz ones at that time.

 

Here are scans of five more of my Adventure Comics with Legion covers:

Zynthia of Xanthu, Star Boy's girlfriend. You see Superboy had got wind of Lana's inane plot to make him jealous so he turned the tables on her for a laugh.

.... wonderful news, Tim......I thought you had gotten rid of them all. Your 247 is too cool to sell..... if you were to sell it, the very fabric of reality could be severely damaged...... and as we all know, there's no evidence that the 9.6 is even better than yours except for the label. GOD BLESS...

P.S. I can see the 247 right now in your glass cabinet...... nestled between a Faberge Egg and a Tyrannosaur Egg ....... underneath the watchful gaze of NC Wyeth's painting of Captain Nemo :cloud9:
