Action Comics vol.1 #79 - Cover date December 1944
Dom Cameron returns to the scripting duties for another outing of J.Wilbur Wolfingham, the con-man who can’t seem to con anyone but himself. This is the second of three appearances of Wolfingham in the same year - once each in Action, Superman and World’s Finest. Two of Superman’s other “funny little” villains (Prankster and Toyman) received much cover fanfare in their appearances, and even Superman impersonator Adelbert Dribble showed up on the cover of his single appearance.
This issue marks Wolfingham’s first gracing of a cover, although he doesn’t so much as share it with Superman as much as he imagines Superman’s presence. Still, it’s an important graduation for a solid, recurring villain.
