The Captain Jim of the Texas Rangers wiki last edited by turoksonofstone on 08/11/13 01:51AM View full history

New Comics received a makeover with issue #12, becoming New Adventure Comics, its symbolic cover featuring a fresh faced baby 1937 ushering out Father Time's past relics. While still stuffed with short humor strips, including, "Hard luck Harry," New Adventure Comics increasingly emphasised action in far away lands through such features as "Castaway Island" and "The Vikings." Rounding out issue 12 was another installment of "Federal Men" though readers could have been forgiven for puzzling over its bizzare sci-fi twist. Unapologetic Sci-fi fans Siegel and Shuster had shoehorned in a professor who explained the "future of scientific crime detection." This framing device gave the two a licence to delve deep into their favourite obsession, telling a tale set in the year 3000 that involved ray guns, rocket ships and star pirates. It also starred an "ace sleuth" named Jor-L (a name later to be re-cycled as that of Superman's father).
