Several weeks ago, I introduced you to my favorite superhero, Sadman. As luck would have it, while browsing a stack of old comics at a flea market this week I came upon a tattered copy of Sadman #146. That rare issue from July 1961 was the first to tell the complete origin of Sadman. The seller didn’t know what he had, so I bought it for a song.
I scanned the whole issue and edited it into easy-to-browse images. Click the cover to start reading. Don’t miss it. It’s a classic.
“The Origin of Sadman” contains material from:
- The Adventures of Superman #146, by Otto Binder and Al Plastino, published by National (DC) Comics, July 1961.
- Amazing World of Superman, “The Origin of Superman,” by Carmine Infantino, Curt Swan, Murphy Anderson, and E. Nelson Bridwell; published by DC Comics, 1973.
