Cuckoo for Comic Books

That crazy bird in the television commercials was always telling us he was Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, and last fall that same bird was putting nice little comic books into his cereal boxes!

There were four different Justice League comics, one placed randomly in each box of certain flavors of General Mills cereals. These were not Bazooka Joe waxed paper comics, mind you, but rather they were 16 pages each and nicely sized at 5 inches by 7 inches. The one I'm showing you above is graced with a Dan Jurgens cover. (My thanks to hayfamzonder Etan T for giving me this one as a gift and, while I'm at it, thanks also to hayfamzonder Ami Z for gifting me with a copy of Walter Simonson's Thor #340!)

Unfortunately you won't find the comic-filled cereal boxes on the shelves anymore. (If by some miracle you do stumble upon one, be sure to pluck out the comic and then discard those too-old Cocoa Puffs!) But, if you'd like, you can look at the online continuations of the four Justice League stories by visiting .
