2016 April Foolishness Art Sources

The Rolling Hoop Superman image is from April, 1963's Action Comics #299 -- a story called "The Story of Superman's Experimental Robots!" with art by Al Plastino.

The other image, of Pa Kent munching on a toaster, is from March 1960's
Adventure Comics #270 -- by the way, that's actually an alien impersonating Jonathan Kent.  This dinner-table trick is how Superboy proves that this guy really isn't his adoptive father.  Art is by George Papp.

Put 'em both together, and you have ...

See you May 2nd!
