In the Headwaters

Still wading the headwaters, reading Showcase Presents: Superman Vol. 1. Just letting the sediment settle as I go. (You kind of have to do that, if you want a chance at seeing the bottom of the stream.)

Intellectually, I know that, once upon a slightly more innocent time, comics were written for children. It's the questions in the narrative really hit the concept home, though.

Reprinted from Action Comics #242.


Just in case you're curious, this is the "hint" from the previous page. And this is, of course, the answer.
