Adventure Comics # 382, July, 1969

After a relatively original solo debut, Supergirl falls back into familiar Superman Family territory here with splendid but old-fashioned looking art from longtime Lois Lane artist Kurt Schaffenberger, ties to previous continuity in the Super-teacher robot, more continuity implants and even a dose of the now infamous "superdickery" from her cousin. 

I once owned some of the original art by Bob Brown and Wally Wood from the SUPERBOY issue advertised below, a fact that would have astonished 10 year old me when the issue came out.

The 13 tales in the issue below were all post-code stories from the fifties--dull but often clever and with good art including some by a man who was perhaps contemplating his return to DC around this time--Jack Kirby.

  1. GOSH! Look likes if Keith Harding is helping out with that figure on the splash page!!!

    BTW, I do like Schaffenberger's look, since he have the best-looking "S" of all the Super-family artists.
