Special thanks to the Almighty Aldous for sending in his scans of the complete issue!

So now we've got three versions of this Sand Saga installment:

The U.S. color version;
The B&W linework only version;
and Aldous' original over-sized scans as he sent them in, for people who just can't get close enough to that artwork!


"The bottom line involves choices.  Neither gods nor humans have ever stood calmly in a minefield forever.  Good or evil, they are bound to choose.  And when they do, you will see the truth of all that motivates us.  As a thinking being, you have the obligation to choose.  If the fate of all mankind were in your hands, what would your decision be?  As a writer and an artist, I've drawn my answer."   - Jack Kirby

Alright, two questions:  Who's going to write the Quarrm entry for Supermanica?  I'm willing to do it, but not until I've read the rest of the sand saga.

2nd:  I'd never noticed this until seeing the oversized scans - but what is that thing around Superman's neck in this issue??

That artwork is wonderful.  Thank you Aldous.

It's a miniature microphone that enables Clark Kent to continue his TV commentary while he's in action as Superman.

I know men aren't renowned for their multi-tasking abilities, but this is the Man of Steel after all!

Thank you Aldous.

You're very welcome... And thank you to Great Rao for making the black and white version available on the website.

I really love how it looks in B&W, I prefer it over the colored version.
Thanks a lot for sharing.
