Superman LP - 1975

The last of the four Superman LPs Power Records released, with Neal Adams sleeve art and Ross Andru on the insides.

As a kid, I found the "Tomorrow the World" story a bit disturbing--the idea of an uncontrolled Superman wreaking havoc was unsettling to my young mind. And the audio portion of the sequence where Superman starts melting Lex's mask as he's wearing it I still find difficult to listen to. In a good way.

I have this! It's very cool! Love the Ross Andru art, and Ron-Za rules!

Hell yeah!!! I used to have this, Batman Gorilla City/Scarecrow Corpse(?) and Spiderman Bells of Doom as a kid. Those and my love of reading is what I honestly think led me down the path to collect comic books as a lad.
Thank you so much for posting these. Now I am off to eBay to track these down.

Not me ... I enjoyed listening to it ... over and over ... I couldn't help thinking, "Finally, Superman has had enough of Luthor's crap." It did my adolescent heart good to hear a slime like Luthor beg for mercy ... as an adult, I find it even more satisfying. In a good way ;)

I still have this record, too! And the Spider-Man werewolf one. Thanks for the site. It's great to finally hear what some of these are like. I used to look at the ads on the inside cover and wonder what they sounded like.
