SUPERMAN'S WHO'S WHO...
SUPERMAN'S WHO'S WHO was a four parter about The LEGION Of SUPER-HEROES,which ran in SUPER DC #s 4, 5, 7 & 8 sometime in 1970-'71 (Scottish edition). It was a rather dull text feature in that it had no visual accompaniment, being part of the editor's page - DIRECT CURRENTS (as in the U.S. DC mags), and was hosted by a fictional seafaring character called The SKIPPER (in reality MICK ANGLO). What on earth had a sea captain to do with the world of DC Comics you might wonder?
Well, the ocean has currents, so there's a bit of a connection I suppose, strained and uninspired though it may be. Anglo had done the same thing before with TV TORNADO, where the 'editor' was also a sea captain, this time called ED STORM. (Tornado, Storm - geddit?)
So, by special request, here are all four parts on their pages to help Dougie relive his childhood.
