The Platinum Anniversary of Superman

July 28, 2008

Action 303 was one of the first DC comics I ever owned. It was cover dated August 1963 but due to its slow boat trip across the Atlantic ocean I wouldn’t have seen it until perhaps 1964. Along with a fun Red Kryptonite story it contained this advert for the 80 page giant celebrating Superman’s first 25 years. I spent months visiting all the shops within cycling distance until I had tracked down a copy. Now Superman is celebrating his 70th birthday (along with The Beano). Little did I realise I’d still be buying Action Comics today. Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun !!
