Thanks for the heads-up on this one. I keep hoping DC would do a Showcase volume of this type of stuff but I suppose it's unlikely. I found a copy on ebay for $6 although there were others up to $40.

Got the book. Surprised to see they used the same "protect the secret identity" plots from Superman,etc. in Johnny Thunder and the Trigger Twins.
But the goofiest part had to be Johnny Thunder's ability to change his clothes on horseback at a full gallop.
