RIP Michael Jackson: King of Pop's Superman #400 Appearance

I'd intended on doing something completely different, but the shocking passing of 80s Icon and King of Pop Michael Jackson can't go unnoticed, even on this humble comicbook blog.While many might know that MJ appeared as Captain EO in Eclipse Comics' 1987 adaptation of the Disney movie/ride, how many of ya knew he popped up in this Jerry Robinson Superman tribute in the magnificent Superman #400 (July 1984)?
We'll return to our regular stuff next week. Thanks for your kind indulgence.
