Adventure Comics # 420, June, 1972

Made legendary by the Internet, this is the infamous "Supergirl flinging a giant metal penis" cover.

Inside, if you ever wondered what our heroine might look like as a redhead, check the miscolored first panel.

More romantic escapism/pinup art .

Here's the announcement that this is the final 25 cent issue, as DC reduced page size and price to compete with Marvel.

Last issue's blurb panel promised more Zatanna and Vigilante. Instead we get the odd little inventory sci-fi story that follows (drawn by Howard Purcell) and a repurposed Superman reprint that makes Supergirl look to be its star when she originally wasn't.
