Actually one of the guest stars is on the cover - CARY BATES and they're standing in front of 909 Third Avenue - the then home of DC! :roll:

An interesting story with some sweet tones, but I'm not sure why the solidified photon menaces being projected by the TV didn't "melt" through the pavement or the grating that Supes uses to carry Big Bertha away from the scene...I need to have a Hostess Fruit Pie and think about it some more... :wink:

AMAZING WORLD OF DC COMICS #7 – Special Superman Issue
Copyright July 1974

The Story Behind the Cover, by Carl Gafford, Sergio Curbelo & Jack Adler – Page 36
The Cover to Superman No. 289 was partly a photo cover with many of the woodchucks posing in fear of “The Phantom Horseman of Metropolis!” -Here’s the story behind it.

Anyone have that issue?

The cover photo was taken by DC production manager Jack Adler on the corner of Park Avenue, New York, and features (left to right) DC staffers Bob Rozakis, Cary Bates, Jack C. Harris, and E. Nelson Bridwell.

The cover art was added later, then it was sent off to the printers.

Editor Julius Schwartz, and publisher Carmine Infantino came up with the idea.
