All New Collectors' Edition C-62 - All New Collectors' Edition ends

The final issue of All New Collectors' Edition, C-62 (1979) is devoted to the Superman movie. 

It does not, however, contain a comic book adaptation of the script. Instead, it's more like a giant press pack, with lots of articles and photographs.

Occasionally some panels of old Superman stories are included, when they discuss the various characters, or the Phantom Zone, for example. But these are the exception in this volume.

And, of course, as a promotional item all the text is glowing and laudatory, about the actors, director, producers, and crew. The original art for the shots, provided for the scene where the bus almost goes over a bridge, is the best page in the book. I was a big fan of the Superman movie, but when I flipped through this as a kid it looked like a waste of money to me.
