Judging from the artwork, our best guess is that this comic book — possibly an issue of either Superman or Action Comics — was published about 50 years ago. Are today’s “refugees” from Central America fleeing war, persecution, or natural disaster like their predecessors did during the 1960s?
Based on the name of the boy, the likely date of the comic book, and the fact that one must travel over ocean waters to reach the boy’s home country, we have a feeling Sandor might have come here from Cuba.
