Superman and The Invaders



I have been enjoying reading Superman's very first adventures in the collected Superman Chronicles series of TPB's lately.  There's an energy to those early adventures, from a time before superheroes were even a genre, that just cannot be replicated today.  I can only imagine what it was like for a young kid to have been reading those ground-breaking tales right off the newsstands.

Where is that Invaders cover from? It looks interesting and I'd like to read the story it's from. Thanks for doing these every day.

It's a pin up by Gabriel Hardman. Thanks, Hoy!

Yep! The superhero tales of today might be putting more "science" into their science fiction. But, part of the charm of the Golden and early Silver Age tales was their clear-cut, child-like innocence.

Something that was irretrievably lost (and not entirely for the better) in the post-WATCHMEN years.

On a lighter note; how about a sequel cover featuring both Miss Americas?

"Energy" is the perfect word for it.

That is seriously amazing. I am angry that it isn't a cover to a real comic I can read.
