SUPERMAN'S WORLD ADVENTURES...
If I remember rightly, these WORLD ADVENTURE LIBRARY text stories (with illustrations) never read 'quite right'. There was always something about them that suggested the writer wasn't too conversant with the characters whose adventures he was relating. However, having had this SUPERMAN 'book' when I was a kid, I couldn't pass up the chance of owning it again when I saw it on eBay recently, and it now joins the ranks of the two BATMAN companion publications in my collection. I got a replacement for the 2nd issue of the Batman one in Gosport in 1981 (meaning I've now had it for far, far longer than I ever had my original '60s copy), and I got a replacement for the first ish a couple or so years back.
Guess I really must get around to actually reading them one day - hopefully before too much longer.
(And, yes, I agree - the above cover does seem like little more than a 'rough'. The space for the shilling price has been indicated by the artist, but ignored, and there's too much space between the logo and the illustration underneath.)
Did you have any of these publications when you were a kid, readers? Share your reminiscences of them in the comments section.
