Wednesday Cover: Superman

A marvelously well-drawn cover by the legendary Neal Adams graces this late Seventies issue of Superman, enticing the adolescent audience with a shocking scene designed to compel kids into shelling out their 30¢ to discover just why Kara would be doing such a heinous thing.

It worked on me.

I truly miss covers like this.

And, for once, it would appear that it isn't Superman being a dick... :)

I miss these kinds of covers, too. Comic book covers SHOULD make you immediately snatch it up and want to read it.

Sadly, this opens to be a lost art form today.

It also didn't hurt to show Supergirl's legs at a dominant angle. :)

hands down the '70s had the BEST looking comic book covers. I've never seen this one, but it's awesome especially for us Supergirl fans!
