    Doc Savage Magazine Point of Sale House Ad (Street & Smith, 1934). A very cool lithographed house ad for Doc Savage Magazine, from 1934, in which he is called "Superman"! Superman's creators borrowed heavily from Doc Savage, in creating DC's Superman, such as the Fortress of Solitude -- Doc's fortress was hidden in the Arctic, was used as a getaway, and to store dangerous technology and devices taken from his villains. And how about Doc Savage's real name, Clark Savage, Jr. written by Lester Dent. Plus Doc was also known as the Man of Bronze. What's stronger than bronze? Maybe steel? Coincidence? We think not! Printed in navy blue ink on rag paper stock, the ad measures 11" x 9", beautifully Plexiglas front float-framed to an overall 22" x 20". A unique treasure from the pulp era. In Excellent condition, with a few barely discernable stains on the left side, and a few small wrinkles.
