THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN COVER GALLERY - PART FIVE...


Images copyright DC COMICS

Another half-dozen covers from The ADVENTURES Of
SUPERMAN for you to drool over, frantic ones.  One of the
things I liked about this period was the use of JACK KIRBY's
GOLDEN GUARDIAN and NEWSBOY LEGION characters,
who I'd enjoyed reading about back in the 1970s.  In my humble
view, JIMMY OLSEN (wherein GG and NL had appeared) was
the best thing that Kirby produced during his time at DC, and
at only 15 issues, it was, sadly, far too short a run.

So feast your eyes, then leave a comment of appreciation
for the talents of JERRY ORDWAY, artist extraordinaire.

Got most of these as well with th eexception of issue 453 which looks excellent I think I will be looking at the back issue bins this weekend!

Kid said...

Nope, it's just a hand that looks like the Thing's, CJ. Deliberately so, I'd imagine.

You gotta get that ish, McS, even if it's just to fill a space.

Fortunately these are dollar or two dollar comics now. Cheaper than new comics. So instead of wasting my money on new 52 or new rebirth I'll get these instead.

Good thinking, Phil. I prefer back issues (or reprints) these days over most of the new stuff.
