PART FOUR OF 'NEW' SUPERMAN COVER GALLERY...
When these comics first came out nearly 28 years ago,
for some reason #20 wasn't put aside for me (I had a standing
order for them). I only acquired it a few short years ago, from
the late Neil Craig's FUTURESHOCK in Woodlands Road in
Glasgow. I only remember that because of the back issue 'lot-
tery' ticket I found within its pages when I flicked through
it relatively recently.
The ticket must have been there for years as it comes
from a time when the shop had relocated for a while to Byers
Road in the '90s, so it had long-expired by the the time I bought
the comic from the shop's original premises a couple or so years
before Neil Craig passed away. It always gives me a sense of
achievement when I manage to fill a gap in a collection -
still got a few more to go.
Anyway, well done. You've endured my self-indulgent
wittering for long enough, so enjoy your reward of these six
covers from a period when a SUPERMAN comic was still
a super read. (It's been a while in my view.)
Incidentally, doesn't it look like there's something missing
from the 'Power Failure' blurb in the above cover (#19)?
