Everything must have its beginning -- note here the beginning of the Simon & Kirby DC juggernaut, which may have been overshadowed slightly by their Timely triumphs, but was no less influential and flew off shelves during the Golden Age, ensuring their place as one of the most successful of comics partnerships. This issue debuted their take on GA favorite, the Sandman, who had been revamped into full hero mode (complete with sidekick) only months earlier, making him perfectly suited to the bombastic Kirby style. Readers responded instantly, reviving the wobbly title, and reinstating the Sandman in the top tier of WWII-era DC titans.
