407 – Tommy Tomorrow in Action

Tommy Tomorrow’s first appearance in Acton Comics #127, October 1948

Tommy Tomorrow makes his way from “Real Fact Comics” to something more fitting: a feature in Action Comics #127 (October 1948). In this first story, he is given the task of collecting alien fish from the solar system for a new Space Aquarium and we meet some stock supporting characters (Joan Gordy, a radio reporter). The stories take place in 1988 (forty years in the future), Tommy has a “ring radio”, and “women share all pursuits with men”. Not bad!
