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!

Another Wonder Bread Card

This card, reproducing George Perez's art, is of course Perez's own rendition of Joe Shuster's

cover for Superman #1 back in 1939.

The New Year from U.N.C.L.E.

Well, I'm only four discs into the complete U.N.C.L.E. series set.

Besides the show episodes, the set also came with two "bonus discs" in little cardboard sleeves. I immediately tossed those sleeves back into the nifty briefcase box the series comes in, and made my own full sized DVD insert as a wrapper for a 2-disc case.

To quote the Cabana Lady from MAD TV , "You Like? I Like!"

It's a Wonder!

Of course, in the 70+ plus years since Action #1, there have been many more promo cards than just the Superman Vitamins we saw last week.

Dated 1978, I'm pretty sure that these were packaged with Wonder Bread. I could be wrong, of course. I DID buy the product they came with myself, and I think it was Wonder.

Builds strong bodies twelve ways!
