'Sir Loin of Beef' has been renamed to 'Don Coyote', for reasons I cannot fathom. The strip remains almost exactly the same, except for the main character getting a name change, and his sidekick Cowhide being renamed Hamburger.
On a similar note, 'Sagebrush 'n' Cactus' (a cowboy humour strip) is now called 'Cal 'n' Alec', which is a vastly inferior name. Again the strip is pretty much unchanged. Both renamed strips are by Bill Patrick, which can't be a coincidence.
An adaptation of the novel 'She' by H. Rider Haggard begins in this issue. It's illustrated by Sven Elven, who seems to be the go-to guy for novel adaptations. This one has a lot of the tropes of adventure fiction of the time - jungles, hidden tribes - but I gather that Haggard's work was massively influential in this genre.
'The Golden Dragon' is a new strip by Tom Hickey. It's set around Mongolia, and as such it's loaded with the casual racism of the time.
There's very little of Steve Carson in 'Federal Men' (by Siegel and Shuster), but the one panel he's in shows him belting someone across the mouth with a gun. Even without Steve this is the most insane strip yet, as a bunch of criminals in jumpsuits and gas masks drive a gigantic tank through Washington, blow up the Capitol Building and hold the president at gunpoint. All of these events happen in just two pages; suck on that Bendis! This is by far my favourite serial at the moment, and proof that Siegel and Shuster had more to offer than Superman.
