Cover Gallery: DC Special Series 1-10!
Great first issue to lead off this series... obviously, Carmine had his choice of characters to include on the cover; why else would he have fit his favorite Detective Chimp on there?
I swear, I've seen the house ad for this book more than any other DC house ad, ever!
It's so funny how DC was trying to play lip service to the Women's Lib movement... and yet, it's "Girls" the super-ladies are referred to as!
Great cover on #4, isn't it?
Issue 5 is another of those great artist-themed issues! I love those!
One of these days, I've got to get a copy of this issue and read this story!
Issue #7 reprinted Strange Sports Stories from the Brave and the Bold issues (and possibly from some of the DC sci-fi books)! Good stuff!
Yes, sometimes DC Special was the Showcase of reprint titles, as the subsequent "Wanted" series spun off from this will attest!
Issue #9 has more Strange Sports Stories, as you can see!
I know I used to have a copy of issue 10 here... but I don't recall it being anything special, to be honest.
