DC Super Powers Coloring Book - 1980s

Another from the collection of F.O.A.M.er Jon Knutson, this one's a real riddle--Jon didn't have anything from this except the cover, and I've not been able to dig up any further clues to its contents.

Judging by the...wobbly cover art (traced over Jose Luis Garcia Lopez stock art shots by someone who had a few too many Whiskey Sours at lunch), this looks like a bootleg item, but there's DC's copyright right there in the corner, and ABC books was a real children's book imprint, so this must be legit. Since it says "Super Powers" on it and Supergirl is rocking her Flashdance look, this book can safely be pegged as being from the 1980s. Other than that...its a mystery.

In any case, its nice to see Aquaman, Green Arrow, and Supergirl on the cover, since they didn't always get to be on the front and/or cover of whatever piece of merchandise was produced.

Thanks again Jon!

I would LOVE to know what was inside this! Could it possibly be foreign? I've certainly never seen this one before.

Chip--I'd love to see any Aquaman-centric pages the book might have, thanks! Just send them to my email address (you can find it on the right)

Sure thing, man. Love your site! I've got a few other Aquaman things you might not have seen...most are Super Powers related. Stuff like this :

I'll take the coloring book off the shelf tonight or tomorrow and look for Aquaman pages. :-)
