DC Comics Superhero First Day Covers Part 2

Here are the other DC Comics Superhero First Day Covers I made. These four had special commemorative postmarks. The Batman postmark is the coolest and the Flash postmark is amusing but I really like the name of the post office that canceled the Superman envelope. The Wonder Woman envelope was a bit of a disappointment as they used the regular postal cancel over the commemorative postmark.

DC Comics Superhero First Day Covers

Well it's Comic Con time again. Dan and I were not able to get down to San Diego so we went to see the Zap! Pow! Bam! The Superhero: The Golden Age of Comic Books, 1938 - 1950 at the Skirball Cultural Center. It has a very long name but was a fun and interesting show. Dan posted a review of the show on his blog.

Here are some first day covers I made for the DC Comics Superhero stamps that came out in July of 2006 at a special event at the San Diego Comic Con. They made stamps for ten DC comic book heroes. I only made covers for seven of the heroes. I included Walf with my favorite, Plastic Man. This is the third appearance of Walf on a first day cover.

I will post the other heroes soon.
