Superman #400 (Oct 84)

I just read Superman #400 yesterday from October 1984.  It’s a thick anniversary issue with no ads, mostly written by Eliot Maggin and featuring stories set at different point in the future when Superman is no longer around. The art is great throughout except there’s no Curt Swan in it! The stories are a mix — mostly good. The last one is written and drawn by Jim Steranko, and it starts out like it’s going to be the greatest science fiction story ever written but ends with a terrible cliche.

Anyway, I’m not here to review this thing. (You can read the whole thing here: http://theages.ac/400/cover.html) I just wanted to post a gallery of some of the amazing pin-ups that are in it.
