World's Finest #208

World’s Finest #208, December 1971

A typically fine cover from Neal Adams at the height of his fame. This is from the brief period when Julie Schwartz turned the World’s Finest title into a Superman team-up book. In that capacity it was, I suppose, something of a dry run for the later DC Comics Presents. It’s quite useful to find Doctor Fate here, actually, as I’ve just been contracted to write an article about the good Doctor’s 1970s adventures for Back Issue magazine.
