World's Finest 58 - the Arrow-tank, and Tom Sparks - Boy Inventor ends

The heroes come to the west coast for the cover of World’s Finest 58 (May/June 1952).

World's Finest 56 - Tom Sparks and the phantom house

That’s a remarkably unexciting cover on World’s Finest 56 (Jan/Feb 52).

It’s not a spectacular issue, either. The only story that stands out is the Tom Sparks one, and even that is not exceptional. 83 more words

Too busy for sports on the cover of World’s Finest 51 (April/May 1951).
