SUPERMAN LOSES HIS HEAD - FAVOURITE COMICS OF THE PAST BONUS...
When I was a lad, due to the sometimes sporadic nature of U.S. comic distribution in Britain, I would often visit newsagent in different and far-flung neighbourhoods in search of MARVEL and DC comicbooks. This was because I was almost always guaranteed to find some mags on sale in some shops that weren't available in others, thus making my investigative expeditions to distant territories well-worth the wear and tear on my shoe-leather.
One such mag was ACTION COMICS #406, containing two SUPERMAN stories and an ATOM and FLASH team-up. The back- up Superman tale (An Untold Tale of Clark Kent) was an interesting little adventure set in London, and one that made quite an impression on me as a 14 year old boy. It had atmosphere, an interesting premise (even if the Superman impersonation was pushing things a bit far), and great art from CURT SWAN and MURPHY ANDERSON. Plus a superb colouring job by persons unknown. (To me, that is.)
But why talk about it when I can show you? So, roll up your eyelids and feast your peepers on the cracking little classic below.
