Tommy Tomorrow (1947) by Virgil Finlay

Real Fact Stories #6 (C) DC Comics
If you're going to introduce a new Sci-Fi hero in the late 1940's then who better to handle the art then Virgil Finlay, artiste extraordinaire of the Pulps. Alas, poor Virgil did not count on the crumby pulp paper of the comics to ruin his fine line work.

The script is credited to Jack Schiff, George Kashdan, & Bernie Breslauer by the good folks at The Grand Comics Database.


Plus, some "Just Imagine" inserts by Virgil from the same series:
