2000 DC Comics Promo 8327-C
As promotional pieces go, this was pretty tame. It's the cover art for Silver Age: Dial H for Hero #1 (July, 2000) by Jim Mooney and Karl Kesel, cut to the specifications of a cover. The intention was for this to serve as a placeholder on the shelf after the book sold out, to inspire customers to request reorders. I'm pretty sure reorders on any of the books from this poorly received retro event were slim. I do enjoy J'onn throwing a missile at Robby Reed, since the little jerk stole the cover slot to House of Mystery back in the '60s. Kind of nifty to see that strip's artist draw J'onn as well, especially with Joe Certa long gone.
