365 Days of DC House Ads, Day 245: Aquaman and Nova begged to be in this one

House ad for Marvel Treasury Edition #28 [Superman and Spider-Man] (July 1981); printed in Batman #327 (September 1980)

...which technically isn't a DC House Ad, as this second tale of Crossover-Earth (Earth-7642) was published by Marvel (altho' co-produced by both DC and Marvel), but it's close enough for a book in which this titanic battle happens:

...not to mention this one!

Oh, and because it's in black-and-white in the ad, here's that cover in glorious crossover color!

God bless you, Lord Bully! I remember this was my very first "special book" along X-Men/New Teen Titans. So many great memories and personal milestones including :

- First John Buscema drawn story
- First Marvel/DC Crossover
- First time I got to meet Doctor Doom and Parasite
- The possibility of Spiderman x Wonder Woman

Ah, the sweet nostalgia!
