Adventure Comics (1938)

Adventure Comics was originally known as New Comics. After issue #11, the title changed to New Adventure Comics until issue #32, where it changed again to Adventure Comics. The final issue of the original series was in 1983. From 1938 to 1946, Adventure Comics starred a number of Golden Age superheroes, including the Sandman, Hourman, Starman, and Manhunter, with a variety of backup features including Shining Knight, Genius Jones, Barry O'Neill, Cotton Carver, and Steve Conrad: Adventurer. In 1946, all previous features were cancelled and Superboy, Aquaman, and Green Arrow were transferred to Adventure Comics from More Fun Comics, and they remained the series' main features well into the 1960s.
