Well, it seems that my Jon Juan posts were so popular that they actually costs me to exceed bandwidth on my Photobucket account. This hasn't happened since the internment camp post back on the original scans_daily. I'm impressed.

Jon Juan - Story 2 - Header

But enough with self-congratulating. Here is the last story in the only issue of Jon Juan:

Jon Juan goes to his namesake's home turf and actually comes off as sympathetic for once (10 pages under the cut) )

Well, that's it for the immortal super-lover - unless, of course, someone decides to revive him. Jon Juan is in public domain.

Tune in next time as I belately fulfill a months-old request and repost the Captain Courageous story where we see something I haven't seen in any other Golden Age story - interned Japanese-Americans treated even remotely sympathetically.

In this installment, we find out the secret origin of one of Jerry Siegel''s more offbeat creations (and considering some of the stuff he created in late 40s - early 50s, that's saying something). But first, a little background.

Jon Juan was published in 1950 by Toby Press, a fairly minor publisher that's best remembered or lots of licensed adaptations, a horror superhero called the Purple Claw (who wound up playing an important backstory role in AC Comics' Femforce) and the dementedly amusing Super-Brat (a Denis-the-Menace-Meets-Superman-Parody character that deserves a post of his own). While Toby Press clearly intended to turn Jon Juan into ongoing series, only one issue was actually published - the issue where all the scans come from.


And, on a bizarre note, I recently discovered that Jon Juan was cited in Seduction of the Innocent. Somehow, I am not surprised.

In any case - on with the origin.

In which Jon flirts alot but doesn't get any action - again (6 pages under the cut) )

Tune in next time to get a peek inside Jon Juan's trophy room (of love) and watch him try to woo a woman on Don Juan's home turf.

After Jerry Siegel got screwed out of the profits he should have rightfully earned from Superman's success, he tried several times to create something that would be just as successful, something that he would own this time around. Unfortunately, it never really worked out this way - but that's a whole other really, really sad story.

What I am about show you may well be one of the most bizarre, WTF-worthy thing Jerry Siegel ever wrote - and I've read his run on Mighty Crusaders. Meet Jon Juan - the Super-Lover.


The comic opens with a long intro that shows why Jon Juan was totally the coolest character in, like, ever:
This, dear readers, is why they invented the show - don't tell rule )

Wow that's a lot of hype. Can any creator possibly live up to that? Read on

In which our hero meets the most <strike>Aryan</strike> blonde Middle Eastern princess ever (17 pages under the cut) )

Tune in next time, when we reveal Jon Juan's fabulous origin - and what a fabulous origin it is.
