DC’s 1970s ROBIN Anniversary Cover Is a Treat For MEGO Fans

EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK at the groovy Robin 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1 variant…

Decade-tribute covers have become The Thing for big anniversary and milestone issues and in January, we showed you the eight for March 11’s one-shot Robin 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1. (Click here to check them out in all their unlettered glory.)

Now, as a 13th Dimension EXCLUSIVE, we can show the final versions of all eight — with era-appropriate logos.

You can click here to check out seven of them. But one of them — the 1970s tribute — deserves a spotlight all its own.

See anything familiar, Mego fans?

Far out.
