Over the next four days I am going to present the eight pages that were exclusive to the collector’s/bagged edition of Adventures of Superman #500. At first I thought that I was going to have to list where the pages fit in with the newsstand version but I was happy to discover that the newsstand and collector’s edition both share the same page numbers, which makes sense but looks kind of odd. I guess the guys and gals in production didn’t want to have to re-number the pages for the two editions. Instead they simply slapped an advertisement in the place of the extra page. Again, interesting but kind of weird.
Anyway, here are the first two pages.
For those of you that would prefer to have some context with these pages they are from the scene where Gangbuster tries to break up what he thinks is a drug deal but is in reality a sting operations that he messes up. They don’t really add anything major to the scene but at the same time they look really cool, especially that first one. That page is a poster waiting to happen.
Next time: Jonathan Kent’s Not So Excellent Adventure.
