Limited Collectors’ Edition No. C-39 Secret Origins of Super-Villains Cover by Dick Giordano

September 13, 2023|In General

Here we have another fine example of a new cover wrapping memorable reprints from the DC Comics archives.

Dick Giordano has heroes and villains squaring off with one another in an epic battle. He also did a double-page centrespread of the major DC villains of the period.

New colour by me.
