The Archive's Sunday Comics - World's Finest Funnies

This week we feature a scan of an ultra rare comic book - Just Like Junior first appeared in 1941's issue 1 of World's Best Comics - in fact this was the only ever issue of World's Best, since for the second issue the title was changed to the now familiar World's Finest Comics.

The idea for World's Best #1 originated from the identically formatted 1940 New York World's Fair Comics featuring Superman, Batman, and Robin with 96 pages and a cardboard cover. The year before there was a similar 1939 New York World's Fair Comics featuring Superman but without Batman and Robin because Bill Finger and Bob Kane had not yet created them.
