I believe it was a back-up feature in Superman.  Also, I think it was Bridwell who wrote most of the back-up version, while Bob Rozakis wrote the mini.

Also, the mini-series was to serve as the definitive story that showed how Superboy became Superman, and bridged the gap between the back-up feature and Superman.

And yes, Miller drew all 4 covers.

Actually Bob Rozakis wrote the In-Between Years--the back-up series that preceded The Secret Years.  Kurt Schaffenberger was penciller on In-Between, whereas he was inker on Secret.

If you check out DCMB (at the bottom of the screen) and go to the archived 80s Superman forum you will find my review of this near the bottom of page 2.  More lively discussion gets going on page 3.

And I note that Miller's covers had nothing to do with the content of the series.  They were just drawings of Superman that could have been used on any title.

I know that one of the online 'Superboy' TV series fansites has these online.  I think they would be an excellent trade paperback these days, to cash in on the 'young Clark' poular due to the WB.  I had this mini-series when it came out, and I LOVED it!  I have always loved Pre-Crisis continuity, and especially when filtered thru the more sophisticated writing styles of the late 70's thru the 80's.  This was a fine example of this kind of 'freshening up' the characters and ideas without disrupting continuity.  I'd give a LOT to have these again, even in just a reprint.
