    Short summary describing this volume.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Based on a popular radio program in which Edgar G. Robinson gave voice to Steve Wilson, the crusading editor of a major newspaper in an unnamed town it eventually also became a film, a television series (but without Robinson) and a comic book series at DC.

    This would be about as close as DC would come to the then very popular and very disreputable “Crime Comic” genre, most examples of which did not really last all that long.

    Big Town however, being based on a popular radio & TV series, and coming from the home of Superman, lasted far longer than average.

    During it’s publication in 50’s it served as an outlet for many of the talents of the coming Silver-Age.
