Notes

The superman image is from the wraparound cover on Superman 252, June 1972 (Art: Neal Adams). The image was subsequently used used on most Superman covers from issue 256, September 1972, to 275, May 1974. The advertisment image is most likely from one of those covers. Thanks to Spiros Xenos for spotting the original.
