World's Finest # 259, November, 1979

Sadly, we've lost the wraparound covers. We've also lost some story pages as we picked up ads again starting this issue. The inside front cover one was sure a good one! Looking at it in perspective with all the better TREK films since, it suffers a bit but at that time, the STAR TREK feature was the culmination of a full decade of TREK fandom, of which I was a part.

Don Newton takes on GA, inked by Dave Hunt.

The return of the ads also meant the brief return of Wonder Woman! At least the one from Earth-Hostess.

The Green Arrow feature actually leads into the Hawkman one this ish, although the addition of Vince Colletta as a horribly inappropriate inker for Newton.

This is sad. This really should have been awesome. Marshall Rogers layouts, and Netzer art...but then  Vince is back on inks. Sigh...

  1. Beautiful Colletta inks in the examples you posted. You are probably into Archie comic art and other cartooney-type stuff.
