PART TWO OF THE SUPER HEROES COVER & IMAGE GALLERY...
Time for part two of The SUPER HEROES gallery, featuring
cover art by U.K. artists that U.S. readers may not have seen before.
The late VANESSA MORGAN was the editor of this title, which puts
me in mind of another female editor - PIPPA M. MELLING - who was
the first editor of The MIGHTY WORLD Of MARVEL back in 1972.
MWOM once promised to print a photo of Pippa, but never got 'round to
it. If by some remote chance anyone who knows Pippa might be reading
this, ask her to get in touch through the comments section, as I'd like to
publish a photo of her and fulfill Marvel's promise of long ago. It'd
be nice to give her the recognition she so richly deserves while,
hopefully, she's still around to know about it.
Anyway, that's enough of the opposition, let's return to DC.
Some great covers (even if the STARRY-EYED SIREN's body
is a little elongated in the lower regions), by the cream of the crop of
British talent around at the time. And wait 'til part three, when we'll
have an absolute stoater of a cover in issue #7, featuring CHRIS-
TOPHER REEVE and the bad guys from SUPERMAN II.
However, that's for next time - be sure to join us then.
