Superman's First Appearance In Australia (Kind Of)
The Mail was eventually replaced by The Sunday Mail which continues to publish comic strips to this day, although they did incur the wrath of myself and few others when they decided to drop Ginger Meggs a few years back. Through the efforts of the late James Kemsley, a lot of others and myself we got Meggsy back in the paper and it's remained there ever since. Sadly Superman was dropped decades back and the comic section these days consists of fare such as The Phantom and Garfield.
In the meantime click the image below and enlarge the 1st appearance of Superman in an Australian newspaper!
