DC Special Series No. 1 Cover by Neal Adams

August 3, 2019|In General

DC Special Series was a catch-all for the one-off specials DC released over the following years, beginning with Five-Star Super-Hero Spectacular in 1977. The series spanned comics, tabloids and digests, and the Special Series was likely done to reduce the number of US postal permits DC had to apply for. A paperwork hassle to be sure. But the Special Series is well-remembered by Bronze Age DC readers for some truly great comics.

DC tapped Neal Adams as the cover artist for this issue, and it gets the re-design and re-colour treatment by me here.
