The Super Friends was an ongoing comic book series published from 1976 until 1981.

The stories were further adventures of the popular Hanna-Barbera animated series, The Super Friends.

It began after the 1973 season of the series was canceled. It focused on the SuperFriends, Wendy and Marvin. Then 1977, when the cartoon was relaunched with Zan and Jayna, the comic followed suit and explained the transition.


  • The series would include Wendy and Marvin for the first eight issue, after which they "retired" to attend college and were replaced by Zan and Jayna.
  • Writer E. Nelson Bridwell, did his best to tie-in the SuperFriends TV series to established canon using footnotes. However, what he did achieve was an entirely new universe for the SuperFriends that fans call Earth-1A.
  • Bridwell said several times in the letter column that he did not want the Legion of Doom to appear; so they never did.
