Daily Panel | No job for a girl
From Action Comics #5 (October 1938). Written by Jerry Siegel; drawn by Joe Shuster.
As Glen Weldon points out in Superman: The Unauthorized Biography, Action Comics #5 is the first Superman story to put the classic formula together. It all starts with a dam bursting and Lois' editor telling her that she can't handle the story because she's a "girl" (his words).
