While I have stopped buying the monthly Superman titles I haven’t stopped working on my Superman collection. These posts are meant to show off those acquisitions.
About eight years ago I made a concerted effort to build up my Pre-Crisis Superman collection. It was an era that I had never given much thought to or wanted to focus on but I figured if I was going to be a fan of the character I should try to learn as much as I could about all of his incarnations. Of all of the titles that have been hard to find Superman Family has been one of the toughest. I don’t know if the print runs were low or what but it’s hard to find them, hard to find them at a good price and hard to find them in good condition. A week or so back I lucked into a lot on eBay that fit both the good price and the good condition criteria. It was a 20 or so issue lot mainly in the 190’s and 200’s of the book. I scanned all of the covers and over the course of a few posts I’ll share them here because some of are quite awesome.
Personally I would hate to be surrounded by clones of Jimmy Olsen and attacked by my action figures. I really feel for Superman in this one.
Covers like this are just awesome. I don’t know if the story is any good but the promise of a throw down between Superboy and Superman is too good to pass up.
I like future covers like this, plus it is a nice piece of art. This is one of my favorites, at least prior to reading the stories.
Unfortunately that is all I have time for today. I’ll post the rest of them soon. Hope you liked them.
