Supergirl and Female Friends! Drawn by Bob Oksner! Nuff Said! 1972 DC Comics!

1972. DC tries to experiment with different formats, both in the physical size of the comics, and their page count portions! One of the many treats to come from this experimentation was the fabulous oversized "Super Spectacular" format, with tons of reprinted (and sometimes new) stories, puzzle and letter pages, special features, and, as seen here, wonderful wrap-around covers! This one was created by the versatile Bob Oksner (who would soon be drawing some Mary Marvel tales in SHAZAM! as well as the WELCOME BACK, KOTTER comic book), and it could not look better! Bob had a way with sexy (but playful) female friends and foes, and this cover depicts them all! We get not only the main star, Supergirl, but also wonderful takes on Batgirl, Dumb Bunny, Black Canary, Hawkgirl, and (a very odd) Big Barda! Click below to enlarge this great cover, and the convenient character key to these cute characters (for all you newcomers)!
