Fleischer cartoons promo - All-Star Comics #8

This ad from ALL-STAR COMICS (1940) #8 was published one day short of a month after the release of the first Fleischer Studios Superman cartoon. The Superman image is recycled from the cover of the 1940 issue of WORLD’ S FAIR COMICS. “Superman’s secret message” was a recurring feature of the Supermen of America page featured in most issues of ACTION COMICS and SUPERMAN at this time. However, despite claiming to use Code Mars as its deciphering key, the code doesn’t appear to match up to any of of the nine key codes on the Supermen of America decoder card.
