DC Special Series No. 26 Superman and His Incredible Fortress of Solitude Cover by Andru & Giordano

One of DC’s best tabloid editions was nearly its last. An all-new tale by Roy Thomas, Ross Andru, Romeo Tanghal, Gaspar Saladino and Jerry Serpe, it used the rich mythos of mementoes in Superman’s Fortress of Solitude as its backdrop.

With the oversized pages, it afforded Andru & Tanghal the ability to pack layouts with rich detail that draws readers into Superman’s world in a way we haven’t been able to enjoy since the original DC universe was shelved in 1985.

The covers were just as fun, and here’s some fresh colour on them.
