[Superman Fan Club] Presents: DC Challenge #8 / Challenge of the Superfans Season 3 Week 6

Challenge of the Superfans Season 3 Week 6 DC Challenge #8

Welcome to Week 6 of Season 3 of a very special [Superman Fan Club] challenge / contest, reading **one single issue a week from the currently- digitized DC Universe Infinite collection of Silver and Bronze Age Superman and Family comic over an interesting space of time (we had to read issues #1-3 for the first week to keep up with each new issue being freshly-digitized) – open to one and all!

As always, you can go back and read an issue and comment on it weeks after it is posted.

This time around: DC Challenge # 8, written at the very precipice of the Bronze Age before the Crisis rolled in the Modern Age officially at DC Comics . This is the Pre-Bryne Superman, the pre-Perez Wonder Woman.

#8 “If This is Love, Why Do My Teeth Hurt?”

Writer: Gerry Conway Artist: Rick Hoberg

Even though there are 4 issues to go I believe, this one really ties a lot of the loose plot threads together!

  1. I vote for the New Gods. I didn’t expect them, although everything not expected is to be expected in this series.
  2. A good question! I studied the 1943 pages looking for clues but found none.

I definitely did not expect to see the New Gods, especially in 1986.
