1972 Neal Adams SUPERMAN Original Pencil Cover Rough! DC Comics!

Neal Adams rough sketches? That's something you don't see often at all, and here is his rough for the cover to SUPERMAN 252, a double-page all-flying heroes spread! This was also one of the covers to front the first of the new "Super Spectacular" format comics from DC, well-remembered 100-page whoppers that had new material, reprints, puzzle pages, letters, and more! Does Neal's main Superman figure look familiar? It should. It was used on puzzles, shirts, signs, and other Bronze Age merchandise of the day! Click to enlarge!



Below: Yep! That's me, Christmas 1973, with my own Neal Adams-flavored SUPERMAN puzzle!

I remember that puzzle! The round can made it distinctive. I also had one of Superman and Batman battling a giant dinosaur (Batman wasn't doing too well in the picture).

I THINK that's a western motif, with covered wagons and such...

Always a fashion-plate.....
