MICK ANGLO'S SUPER DC BUMPER BOOK 1971 (UPDATED)...
As promised a little while ago, here's the cover of the one
and only SUPER DC Bumper Book for 1971, which completes
the run of TOP SELLERS' monthly reprint title from the early '70s,
as edited by MICK ANGLO. It included various U.S. DC COMICS'
strips (Superman, Batman, Jimmy Olsen, etc.), plus U.K.-produced
text stories, features, joke pages and humour strips. I'm not sure why it
was called a 'Bumper Book' rather than an 'Annual', as it's a fairly slim
volume with absolutely nothing 'Bumper' about it. Incidentally, The FRIENDLY SOUL cartoon strips below were drawn (and prob-
ably also written) by famed comics historian and collector,
the late DENIS GIFFORD.
KRYPTO's had a colour change - don't ask me why
Below is the leaflet included in various issues of Super DC,
advertising some DC-themed companion Annuals which were
available at the same time - and for only 10'6d. Wow!
