Other media promo - Action Comics #51

By 1942, Superman was making waves in virtually every media of the time — a newspaper serial running seven days a week, a growing-in-popularity radio show and and the animated shorts in theaters. This ad from ACTION COMICS (1938) #51 makes note of all three and uses the Fred Ray-drawn cover from SUPERMAN (1939) #18 to not let readers forget where the Man of Steel came from — no, not Krypton, but the four-color world of comic books!
