  Blooper Alert! While attending the 1940 World’s Fair, Clark tells Lois about a crime he covered 4 years earlier (1936) in London. We all know Clark became a reporter in his 1st appearance; Action Comics #1, cover dated June 1938! Is Clark just a pathological liar, or is there an untold tale to be told? Hmmm...

  Even if they don't crossover, it's still pretty exciting to see Supes, Bats, and the Boy Wonder sharing the cover. I believe this is the first time they've been on a cover together.

This Superman story itself is a little generic. It reads like they just threw together a generic Superman story together and slapped "World Fair" on it. I dig that Jack Burnley art, though.

  Fairly routine, and not up to the usual standard in a Superman story. However, it was interesting to contrast Burnley's visual style to Shuster's. And always funny to see Lois display her typical lack of respect to Clark. 3 stars
