Synopsis for The Spectre: "The Unsafe Safe"

Thieves mix fake gems with those of a jewelry store. Percival Popp offers to sort the gems to determine which belong to each party. The crooks tail Percy back to his lab and steal the real gems, then lock Percy in his newly bought safe. Spectre frees Percy and tracks down the crooks. Together they retrieve the real gems and return them to the rightful store owner.

Notes

  • Earth-One:
    • The Earth-One universe first appears in the Superboy story in this issue. Earth-One is first named in The Flash #123 (1961), but this issue is retroactively cited as its first appearance because Superboy has no Earth-Two counterpart.
    • Since Golden Age Superman stories were retroactively assigned to Earth-Two-A and Superboy stories were flashback stories, it can be argued that this issue is also the first appearance of the Earth-Two-A Superboy.
    • One usually reliable online source consistently lists Congo Bill's appearances, beginning with his debut in More Fun Comics #56 (June 1940), as being set on Earth-One. No explanation for this designation is given on any of the Congo Bill pages at that site.
  • The Spectre:
    • This issue's story is The Spectre's final golden age solo appearance. His next chronological appearance is in Showcase #60.

Trivia

  • No trivia.
