Great Covers

Concept and copy-oriented, this Curt Swan SUPERMAN cover succeeds by teasing the events of the story inside. In a day when comics typically contained three separate stories, the promise of a longer tale “in three great parts” was like getting the promise of a movie. Clearly this had to be an important story to warrant all of that space. The black background make the white and yellow come-on copy pop like a firecracker.
