George Tuska! Rare 1979 DC Comics Posters! Batman! Green Arrow! JLA!

Sure, I've covered the little-seen WORLD'S GREATEST SUPERHEROES 70s newspaper comic strip before, but have you ever seen these great promotional posters? These were published in order to hype and announce the then-new comic strip, and to get new readers acquainted with the Justice League superhero membership! Drawn by long-time Marvel maven George Tuska (with help from Jose Delbo and Vince Colletta), these are some fabulous and handsome images! This successful strip ran in papers from 1978 to 1985, and was originally brought in to being due to the late-70s popularity of SUPERMAN-THE MOVIEand the attention it brought to Supes and his DC Comics brethren! Click to enlarge!

DC was smart
to capitalize on the use
of mega-popular Batman and
Robin in the strip!

Note the inclusion of such lesser-
known stalwarts as Elongated Man and
Black Canary!
