Adventure Comics

 ADVC   (DC, 1938-1983, 2010-2011)

™ and © DC Comics, Inc.
Series continued from New Adventure Comics #31

This classic series featured most of DC’s favorite heroes and villains in its 45-year run. The Legion of Super-Heroes, Starman; Saturn Girl; the Sandman’s sidekick, Sandy; the Golden Boy; Hourman; and Cosmic Boy, and others made their first appearances in this series. Superboy and Supergirl each starred in its pages for a time, and it was here that Superboy and Lois Lane first met (although Superboy would later encounter and date his mermaid girlfriend Lori Lemaris, in this same series).

In December of 1972, DC started featuring pure adventure without super-heroes, and in 1974 artist Mike Grell did his first comic work for this series. The change in format was short-lived, and in 1975, DC switched back to the super-hero format, featuring Aquaman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and many of the first adventures of the Spectre.
