"What's that on your head, Super-Chief?"
"Fine! Latersville, man! You don't have to be so rude about it -- and you're not my dad!"

I loves me the 100-Page Super Spectaculars, and reprints (especially Golden Age ones) always fascinated me, but let's be honest: Do Air Wave, Kid Eternity, and Super-Chief really constitute an "all-star line-up"?

I'm just wondering what's up with that look on Superman's face. Is he smiling? Grimacing? Does he smell something bad? Is he having a bad photo day?
