Superman Man of Steel #75 – January 1998
Welcome back to Covers from the Unknown! This week we look at a villain who has made his DC Rebirth debut very recently! No spoilers here……but if you aren't reading the Rebirth Superman series, you are missing out. It's the first Superman series I have enjoyed in a long time! Now back to the column! This week I give to you Superman Man of Steel #75, from January 1998. It features a homage to Superman #75, the death of Superman, only this time it features the death of Mr. Mxyzptlk! He has always been one of my favorite villians, just not used as much as he should be! Some of his adventures in the old Action Comics were some of the first comics I ever read!
This comic has a great cover, and I am not sure it will ever be appear on any “hot” or “Top 10” list anywhere. But it is a great homage cover, with a great villain behind it! If DC ever decides to use him correctly, you never know what this comic could do, as there are not a lot of comics featuring him. These are dirt cheap right now, and you should be able to find them easily with a print run of about 40k.
Good luck and Happy Hunting gang!
