Was going through the junk pile this weekend and found a bunch of old Superman giveaway comics.

This one is Overseas Comics distributed to the US Armed forces. Each issue had full pages of the current newspaper characters including Superman. This is #27 a 1944 issue.

Last one I've got today is this simple one color 4 pager given in the 1958 Superman Halloween costume. Kind of scarce.

I know there are several cool 1940's ones that I don't have. If anyone has any not shown here, I'd love to see them!

Um ...Superman...that last panel is VERY disturbing.  There are laws against that.   The second last panel is just disturbing.
