Superboy #89, Page 8, by George Papp!

superboy089_08_papp
Had to make a bonus post for today, given that it's my dog Krypto's birthday - and of course, Krypto appears on this page!

Pepsi Glass!

Not sure why this artwork, which appears to be based on Neal Adams' "Kryptonite Nevermore" cover, was redone for this glass... unless it predated that comic, and Neal was referencing it himself?

1977 Frame-Tray Puzzle!

superman_77frametray

This photo looks weird because the puzzle is still in the shrink wrap... well, that and the puzzle's a bit odd-looking anyway, isn't it?

I have no idea why they didn't use the Superman logo on this puzzle!

I find it amusing that the packaging shows Superboy flying a Superman inflatable kite!

Presto Magix!

Take temporary tattoos and put them on a Colorforms background, and you have Presto Magix! Even those who had these have no idea why they were called a "game."

Kind of a boring puzzle, isn't it?

I'm guessing there were several glasses in this series, tied in to some thing or another...

Placemat!

I may well have posted the one side of this placemat on here before, but since I came across photos of both sides, I thought it was worth bringing back!

Superman Giant Coloring Book Art!

This is just part of an auction of original artwork for this entire coloring book by one of my favorite eBay sellers to browse, Golden Treasures NYC. I haven't bought anything from them, but they have lots and lots of very cool stuff, all from Whitman Publishing -- not just original art, but also storybooks, coloring books, and more!

AHI Parachutist!

superman_ahiparachutist

Wow, where to begin with this? Well, I suppose if you're really up on your Superman lore, you could consider this the "Shrunken Superman parachuting into the Bottle City of Kandor" toy...

...but there's no explaining those red gloves or the serrated cape, except that they were obviously reusing some stuff from their Batman parachutist!

French Super Friends Record!

As you can see, this was just a record with the themes from the Superman movies and the Wonder Woman TV series... and not Super Friends!

I'm guessing these were done for Super Powers licensing, but I could be wrong! More tomorrow!
