Dateline: Silver Age comic book newspaper headlines

Clark Kent and Peter Parker aren’t the only plainclothes superheroes to make use of print media; virtually every caped crusader in comic book history has had occasion to learn of her/his unmasking, a new villain, or growing civic unrest from the front page of the city daily, which the blog Dateline: Silver Age catalogs exhaustively. Some memorable headline copy: “Bomb Yankees,” “Two Babies Make Invaders Disappear” and “Aquaman Betrays Finny Friends,” a rousing exclusive from the Sea News. (Neatorama)
