WORLD'S BEST COMICS (1941) #1
Publisher:
DC
Grade:
G-: 1.8
The runaway success of the 1939 and 1940 New York World's Fair square bound comics prompted DC to launch a quarterly compilation comic with many of the same features, thereby establishing the first major superhero anthology comic of its kind to run regularly, and beginning a series that would last, with few variations on its formula, for nearly 50 years. It also boasted the first appearance of the "Big Two", Superman and Batman, on the same cover of a newsstand comic (the 1940 NYWF comic being sold largely at the fair itself), which gave kids around the country the thrill of a lifetime.
