PART TWO OF A PICTORIAL TRIBUTE TO MICK ANGLO...
Here are some more covers from my collection of SUPER DC,
the TOP SELLERS reprint title from the late '60s, early '70s. Also
shown are the free gifts from issue #1. Traditionally, British comics
had free gifts in the first three issues, but that was usually only with
weeklies. Perhaps because it was a monthly publication, editor MICK ANGLO decided to put all three giveaways in the 1st issue - or it could
have been that, individually, they weren't much to write home about,
hence the 'quantity' rather than 'quality' approach.
If anyone has issue #14 of Super DC (if it exists) and wants to
sell it to me, get in touch. Then I can feature it on a future post.
With two or three exceptions (where interior panels were enlarged
for the purpose), Mick Anglo is believed to have drawn the covers,
using images from various DC sources as reference. If anyone knows
anything different, I'd appreciate you letting me know.
