Amazing Mystery Funnies v. 3 #1 - pt. 2
First we get a lot of establishing of a real world setting, with references to place (Metropolis, California, Mt. Arrowhead) and time (topical reference to Amelia Earhart's disappearance). This is the first mention of a city named Metropolis in comic books and, while Mt. Arrowhead is fictional, there is a Lake Arrowhead in California.
Wax statues of guardians seems like a good trick to put in your hideouts.
