Superman #300: "Superman 2001!"
Download Superman #300
In keeping with the superhero genre I'm currently focusing on, here is a good one from 1976 celebrating Superman's 300th issue. Basically, this issue asks the question, what if Superman arrived on Earth in '76 and was acquired by the United States with a jealous Soviet Union looking forlorn? This anniversary issue was written by Cary Bates and Elliot S! Maggin and drawn by Curt Swan (natch!) and Bob Oksner.
To many longtime readers, Curt Swan was the artist on Superman. He drew the Man of Steel for close to forty years, developing a style that was attractive and seemed highly suitable for depicting the residents of Metropolis.
