Another fantastic cover image by DC Comics mainstay artist, Nick Cardy! This (below left) is the unused cover art to SUPERBOY #187, from 1972, by Cardy, compared to the published version (below right)! Why the switch? Was the figure of Superboy deemed too dominant in the composition? Was it not clear as to what was occurring in the scene? Not enough room for captions, blurbs, and word balloons? YOU decide!
