If only Superman was real, I think World War II would have ended more quickly. Of course these posters were for the noble effort to send comics to soldiers in the field and not to send the Man of Steel overseas, but a guy can dream. Hake’s is selling this rare poster (this is the first time/place I have seen it). I think it would make an excellent addition to any collection.
According to Hake’s
Paper poster has been folded twice as issued and opens to 10×16-7/8″ with nice 2-7/8×10″ tall image area at left with smiling Superman in costume. Issued by AEWS in cooperation with Associated Program Sponsors. Text at right reads “Ask Your School Librarian Or District Victory Council How You Can Send Comic Books And Other Popular Magazines To Soldiers Who Are Stationed In Europe, The Pacific, And Guarding Our Home Front.” Text across bottom “This Summer, Remember Them With V-Mail And Packages From Home”. Superman image is ©Superman, Inc. Slightest aging and folded as issued but totally clean and Exc. Wonderful display item. One of only a few known and first we’ve offered in our 45 years.
