Wednesday Whacked Comic Cover - Action Comics #457

The cover of Action Comics #457 proofs that sometimes no one looks at the context contained within a cover before it is released.

Really what was DC comics thinking when they put this on the newsstand back in March,1976. A little boy crying in his bed with Superman undressing behind him. Huh, what was cover artist Bob Oskner trying to covey with this image?

The story by Jerry Conway is about Pete Ross’s son is dying of a disease and has lost his will to live. Superman tries to help young Jon Ross but telling him what he most wants to know, which is the Man of Steels secret identity. only problem is Jon won’t believe that the Man of Steel is really Clark Kent.
Sounds like a heartfelt story with one whacked cover. 

Add this one to your collection, sure to be a conversation piece.
