Cover to Cover: Adventure Comics #492

Another installment of Cover to Cover, continuing with the digest issues of Adventure Comics, where Aquaman's "Search for Mera" storyline was reprinted in order.

This month's cover is by Keith Giffen and Mike DeCarlo, and the established format--having to cover all seven features--didn't give the artists a lot of room, but overall I really like the design. It's clear and smooth, and kinda old school.

Aquaman in particular looks like he's taking a leisurely swim, not engaging in a desperate search for his wife, but what the hey. I'm still just happy that those classic Skeates/Aparo stories were reprinted somewhere.

Those are some freaky pictures

Satan eating Captain Marvel.

A demon smashing the Earth on the Spectre's head, with most of the southern hemispere destroyed.

Supergirl getting her feelings hurt.

And Black Canary in bondage.

I had most of the Adventure digests, but I gave them to a friend who was a big Legion fan. Now I wish I had them back!
