Looks like John Carter has some competition
DC published a John Carter tribute in this issue of Superman, which came out during that weird limbo period of time between the end of "Crisis" (issue #12 was cover dated March 1986) and the beginning of John Byrne's newly rebooted adventures in "Man of Steel."
Those of you with knowledge of comic history will know what I'm talking about...the next 6 issues of Superman (under the editorial hand of the legendary Julius Schwartz) basically had a "let's try whatever" approach as they had nothing to lose, knowing that a new direction would be starting soon. I may explore this topic further in an upcoming post. Stay tuned!
