Superman in The Triumph and the Gem, 1940

Here's a quick look at the first issue of the second run of Superman in the April 6th 1940 issue (#807) of The Triumph and Gem

(If we leave aside the advert in issue 771 for the strip starting in issue 772 then) Superman first appeared in issue 772, week ending August 5th 1939, of The Triumph - his strip there (his first appearance outside the USA & just a year after his debut) would run for 21 issues (so to issue 792).

This 2nd run would last from issue 807-814 - there wouldn't be any cover appearances for Superman - unlike his first run in The Triumph where he graced the cover 4 times.
