With the release of Superman #700, Batman #700, and Wonder Woman #600 (Yay for historic numbering restored!), I am remembering anniversary issues of the past. It seems to me that the 1980s saw the best anniversary issues from DC.


Then there was Batman #400 (Oct 86), a similar treat with art by Joe Kubert, George Pérez, Steve Rude, and many more. It even had an essay by Stephen King!

And don’t get me started on Justice League of America #200 (Mar 82), a jam-packed epic by Jim Aparo, Carmine Infantino, Gil Kane, Joe Kubert, Pérez, and more. The story featured all the classic members of The JLA teaming against a cosmic menace.
