  Another story that seems to have been retro fitted for this Fair issue. I suspect some shenanigans are afoot!

  Hmmm, maybe the 1940 Fair wasn't as exciting as the 1939 Fair. I'm only guessing here, but with war going full force in Europe, it's possible the mood of the country was changing and the Fair just wasn't a priority. The stories here do seem like a step backwards from what the main strips were producing at the time.

Having said that, the Sandman story here was still an entertaining romp. 3 stars
