GAC Featured Golden Age Cover – Superman #61 (1949)

The cover of issue 61 of Superman from November of 1949 doesn’t tip-off the reader to the monumental story that appears inside.  This issue not only features the first appearance of Kryptonite in the comic book, it’s the first time that Superman discovers he’s an alien.  I covered this story in the Superman episode of the podcast and in my column for Comics Now! #1.  Enjoy!
