The Last Wonder Bread Card

Saving the loveliest for last, here is the final card of the ones I collected (I think) from Wonder Bread.
It's the cover of The Daring New Adventures of Supergirl #1.
Maybe this is cynicism caused by adulthood, but it kind of amazes me that the DC powers (Jenette Khan maybe?) approved that phrase as a title. I mean, come on! Calling the series The Daring New Adventures is like saying, all of her PAST life was not daring, or new, or adventurous.
Also makes a promise nigh on impossible to keep!

What's interesting is they have a typo on the back of this card. "The Daring New Adventures of Supergirl" debuted in November 1982, not 1972 (although curiously that was the date of the first "Supergirl" series).
