I'n on record as greatly admiring Jerry Siegel's plotting while feeling his dialogue was often more overwritten than Stan Lee's. FUNNYMAN, seen here, was Jerry's attempt at a second lightning strike with childhood pal and SUPERMAN co-creator, Joe Shuster. There's a reason they say lightning doesn't strike twice. The character's main problem was that he was obnoxious rather than funny. The best thing about the short-lived series was Shuster's art. Even though his eye problems had already begun the work seen here, aided and abetted by others including a young Dick Ayers (noticeable on this one unless I miss my guess), was quite lovely! Makes you wonder where his talents would have taken him in better circumstances.
