Superman Across The World! "Nembo Kid?!" Silver Age DC Comics Surprise!

Wow! From a 1968 JIMMY OLSEN special, here is a panic-inducing piece about the many SUPERMAN overseas editions distributed then! We all knew that such a famous superhero was known all over the globe, but dig just how wide-spread his influence truly was! And how about those translations? Superman is the "Nembo Kid?" Supergirl is known as "Stalflickan?" Batman is called the "Leather Patch?" And, will USA readers ever get to see those custom-made Italian SUPERMAN tales?! Click to enlarge!

BONUS! Look below for a rare glimpse at a cache of DC overseas comics, in 
this blurb from the AMAZING WORLD OF SUPERMAN, a 1973 oversized DC tabloid edition comic!
