Superboy #189, August 1972

Now, come on — isn’t that a cover image that makes you want to go and read the issue? Who could resist plonking down their 20c — or 5p over here — to get the chance to peruse this little beauty?

Now, I wouldn’t want to spoil it for you, but I’m guessing it might not come as too big a surprise that this scene is just a tad, er, exaggerated compared to what actually happens inside. But, hey, as cover, doing the job it’s designed to do, grabbing the potential reader, this is a winner!

Of course, there are probably some mad fools out there who would find the runaway antics of Superbaby just as enticing…
