The Noah's Ark From Space
What with the "new and improved" DC Comics line, almost everything that was fun and interesting from the Golden and Silver Age of comics no longer exists. There's quite a bit of sadness involved with that. By no stretch of the imagination were those stories the greatest or most thought-provoking tales ever printed, but they aren't without their own unique charms; totally denying that they ever existed seems wrong somehow. Have the head honchos at DC never heard of the concept of alternate realities?? Yeah, I'm sure they have, but they just don't know how to pull it off.
Anyhoo, enough ranting. Just sit back and enjoy this li'l bit o' fluff from the old, old days when comics used to be fun. Presented in wonderful black and white (because it's from a UK reprint, where comics were always black and white, had more pages, and were printed in a larger tabloid size, to boot. Those kids over there really got their money's worth).
One more thing, I'm not exactly positive, but I seem to remember the adult Superman encountering a similar situation as the one in this story. Perhaps a well-versed trivia buff could verify this??
