BONUS: SECRET ORIGINS COVER GALLERY EXTRA...
Let's take a little detour from our regular SECRET ORIGINS
series and cop a gander at the covers of the original mags from the
'60s that started the ball rolling. First up (above) is the SPECIAL
GIANT ISSUE from 1961, followed by the 80 PG. GIANT #8
(below) which, despite its numbering, was the second issue in
the 'Origins' series and which was released in 1965.
A new series appeared in 1973 and lasted seven issues, and
you can see the covers by clicking this link. At the foot of this
post are the replica editions of the two comics shown above and
below, the first from 1998 and the second from '99. DC COMICS
issued a follow-up issue in the style of the two '60s mags in 2003,
and I've included that for good measure so that you've got all
three. I'm not one to do things by halves, as you can see.
Anyway, have fun comparing the two original covers with
their replicas, and leave a comment if you have any interesting
thoughts, theories, or observations you'd like to share.
