    Secret Origins (1986-1990 2nd Series) 1

    From the ashes of the epic Crisis on Infinite Earths arises a new DC Universe - a single, united world where the heroes and villains from the once-various earths now reside. To celebrate this historic event, and to chronicle the new dimensions of our heroes' lives, DC presents...Secret Origins. Secret Origins is exactly that - a revelation of the beginnings of DC greats! For the premiere of this unprecedented, ongoing series, writer/editor Roy Thomas teams up with renowned artists Wayne Boring and Jerry Ordway. The first issue features, appropriately enough, the original Superman. Boring returns to the Man of Steel from his early penciling days to link artistic forces with Ordway. If you've seen their Jor-El page in Who's Who #12, you know the combo is a winner! In Secret Origins, the odd-numbered issues retell the origins of DC's Golden Age heroes in chronological order (for example, #3 - Captain Marvel, #5 - Crimson Avenger), and the even-numbered issues retell the secrets behind the modern heroes, such as members of the Teen Titans, The Outsiders, etc. Cover of the premiere issue is by Boring and Ordway. Cover price $0.75.
