Superman The Night Of March 31st
In the first story, Superman faces off against the anti-Superman gang with "The Secret Identity of Superman", story by Jerry Siegel and art by Curt Swan and Stan Kaye, and the second (featured on the cover) dealt with the time "The Interplanetary Circus" came to Metropolis and tried to recruit Superman (cover by Curt Swan and Stan Kaye, and this story by Robert Bernstein and Al Plastino).

Lana Lang attacks Superman, with Luthor, Brainiac and Bizarro coming to his rescue?

This story has been reprinted a few times, in Adventure Comics #339 (December, 1965), The Greatest Superman Stories Ever Told from 1987, and in glorious black and white in Showcase Presents Superman Volume #2 in 2006.

What's great is that not only at least 12,000 fans read this story, but actually participated in the event! And one guy was from Troy, MI! Several weeks for the judges to go through all the entries? Holy Mackerel! Talk about the good old days of comic book fandom!ReplyDelete
When comics were still fun. Not heavily-muscled baboons tearing one another limb from limb, nor destroying everything in sight. The creators showed imagination, originality, humor. Very few people working in mainline comics today have any idea what those terms even mean.ReplyDelete
