Along with the treasury-sized edition of the second DC Comics-Marvel Comics crossover, “Superman and Spider-Man”—as well as Bob—got the mass-market paperback treatment, in an edition copublished by Marvel and Warner Books.
In advance of the 1981 release of the treasury-sized DC Comics-Marvel Comics crossover “Superman and Spider-Man” (a sequel to 1976’s “Superman vs. The Amazing Spider-Man: The Battle of the Century”), Marvel and DC ran this house ad in their comics.
What’s really unusual about it (beyond the cartoony painter’s hand that represents Bob, which seems to be more of a DC design touch) is that, on a full-color page in full-color comics, they chose to reproduce Bob’s cover painting in graytones!
