Starring: Clark Kent as Superboy.

Superboy had been making appearances as the lead feature in Adventure Comics since early 1946, but he finally debuted in his own series in 1949. Any Superman fans who were unaware of the concept of the "adventures of Superman when he was a boy" may have been reassured by the fact that the man of steel himself introduced the series on the cover of the first issue. The Superboy series would feature work by the likes of France E. Heron and William Woolfolk and its success would last for over 30 years.
