DC Super Friends #1 (2008)


Based on the toy line from Mattel was the comic book series called DC Super Friends. Published in 2008 during the big marketing push of the toys, this is the first issue featuring Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Green Lantern (John Stewart).

In this issue, after saving a group of school children lost in a cave, the team does battle with Professor Ivo and his super android Amazo. There’s one page with a “Superman Fact File” and a “Help Superman Come to Earth” maze.

The story was written by Sholly Fisch. and the interior art was done by Dario Brizuela. There’s one panel that looks like a direct homage to the art of Ed McGuinness with a buff and squinty Superman working together with Wonder Woman to try and break free from a Kryptonite cage.
