DC Comics Watermark - 1986

This is the, er, watermark that appeared on the back of 1986-era letter DC Comics sent to Mike Sterling, of the awesomely entertaining blog Progressive Ruin.

During my misspent youth, I would occasionally send a letter to DC and always got a reply, and they would contain some stock art watermark, usually featuring Superman, Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, or some combo thereof. I never got one like this, which I would've cherished.

Thankfully Mike was generous enough to let me use this for the Shrine, which makes him the newest member of F.O.A.M.! Thanks Mike!

Not only does it look great, but it's pretty clever too.

I have never seen that one, I like it, and as siskoid said very clever.

It made me think of the only one I have ever seen, s I dug one up, scanned it, and am sending your way, maybe for use on your JLA Satellite page?
