The Best of DC

    (DC, 1979-1986)
™ and ©1980 DC Comics

The day-to-day life of everyone’s favorite great metropolitan newspaper is chronicled in this digest-sized collection of some of DC’s most memorable stories involving Superman and his day job. Remember the time Clark Kent had to pose as Superman for a Planet-sponsored publicity stunt? How about the tale of “How Lois Lane Got Her Job”? Regardless of how you stand on the question of Super-continuity, these pre-Crisis stories give new readers a chance to brush up on their DC history and long-time fans get a chance to revisit some great adventures.
