Walking with Superman: Day 209

In one of his earliest pieces for the Daily Planet, a young Clark Kent investigated sightings of a ghostly clipper ship appearing around a shipyard near Bath, Maine. Kent's inquest ultimately revealed the sightings to be a clever hoax, meant to disguise the devious dealings of a traitor--dealings that were undone by a rookie Superman. Today, Clark Kent finds himself back near those old shipyards, once more walking the docks in the foggy night. But this time, when the seaweed-draped hull of the Nancy M materializes in the murk, its skeletal crew looming over the sides, his senses prove that this ghost ship is no hoax! Why has Captain Joshua Murdock sailed his spectral seamen out from Davy Jones' Locker, and how is Superman involved?
