DESCRIPTION
ow/white pgs; QES Certified - Criteria met: preferred staple placement + deep color strike (blue,red & purple)
Curt Swan cover; origin & 1st app. of Bizarro
Created by the team of Otto Binder and George Papp, the hapless Bizarro made his first appearance in this very issue, being bought to life by a malfunctioning duplicating ray fired at Superboy, Bizarro was born, with all the powers of the Kryptonian, but not much of his brains. The character would strike a chord with DC Superfans and go on to become a regular nemesis, and occasional companion, to the Man of Steel. Silver Age DC keys are difficult to come by, especially in higher grades, and this book is no exception, a serious must have comic for anyone with a soft spot for the amusing antics of the beloved backwards Bizarro.




Artist Information

Swan was a house artist at DC working on titles like Tommy Tomorrow, he began gravitating towards Superman and his related books, Superboy, World's Finest and Jimmy Olsen, he would eventually leave DC thanks to his personality issue with Editor In Chief Mort Weisinger. He would eventually return and go on to be the artist that defined the look of Superman in the Silver Age, eventually becoming the editor of the title, but after thirty years of keeping up standards of all things Superman, Swan was given the boot in favor of John Byrne's Superman reboot, Swan's comic work began to taper off after this dismissal and he eventually retired, but will forever be recognized as the Silver Age Superman's finest artist.
