Now SOLD! Adventures of Superman 1990-1991 Lot

This 5-issue lot is written & penciled by Dan Jurgens and inked by Art Thibert (except for #466, which was inked by MR. Giordano).  I thought Jurgens & Thibert were a great team:  Jurgens' crisp, clean storytelling combined with Thibert's finely detailed inking (in the arguably somewhat fussy 1990s style of Jim Lee and Todd McFarlane).  The comics average Very Fine Minus condition.

  1. Adventures of Superman #465 First cameo appearance of astronaut Hank Henshaw, who would go on to become the Cyborg Superman.  
  2. Adventures of Superman #466 First full appearance of Hank Henshaw, later the Cyborg Superman.  Giordano inks. Fantastic Four #1 homage.
  3. Adventures of Superman #467 Batman crossover, part of the Dark Knight Over Metropolis arc. 
  4. Adventures of Superman #469 
  5. Adventures of Superman #474 Flashback to Clark's teen-age years in Smallville.  Superman appears in costume only on the splash page and the very final panel of this story.
