*DC: Another selection of Bronze Age first issues, beginning with DC Super-Stars from 1976. While DC Super-Stars eventually featured new material, it kicked off with a reprint celebration of the Teen Titans – no, the proper ones! DC Special Series #1 is often mis-filed as ‘5-Star Super-hero Spectacular’, its apparent cover title. This ‘Dollar Comic’ premier edition of the rotating anthology title had five all-new stories starring Batman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, the Atom and the Flash. Dynamic Classics #1 was a short-lived casualty of the infamous ‘DC Implosion’ of 1978, lasting but a single issue before cancellation – but it does give you a superlative Neal Adams Batman story and Simonson’s Manhunter, so a class act while it lasted. The Legion of Super-Heroes’ Karate Kid got his own solo title in 1976, doubtless intended to emulate Marvel’s Master of Kung Fu; written by Legion scribe Paul Levitz, it’s… well, actually, it’s not very good at all, but us sad Legion completists (raises hand) have to have it anyway! Following his ‘Fourth World’ series’ cancellation, Jack Kirby turned his hand to other tales at DC, and 1976’s pulp-inspired Kobra told the tale of twin brothers, one intent on world domination, and the other determined to thwart him. And the Fourth World ‘proper’ commenced with 1971’s New Gods #1, the debut of Orion, and the launch of a new cosmic tapestry for the DC Universe. This is a clean sound affordable copy of a key issue, with only three book centre stamps (two faint) and a scribble over the cover price precluding a higher grade.
