Supercomix!

These were easy to find in the 70's and 80's. Published by Republican Press were Supercomix - South Africa's Own Comics. They often had a Pop Star poster as a centrefold. Popular DC Titles reprinted were Superman, Superboy & Wonder Woman. Popular Marvel titles reprinted were Spiderman, Hulk, Captain America & Thor. Popular cartoon titles like Donald Duck, Popeye, Mighty Mouse, etc were also reprinted.
Here is a Supercomix advert and the covers of Amazing Spiderman 6 & 12. 

Thanks Mahdi from Readers Den (Cape Town) for this scan. It is an article on Supercomix written by Edmund Harmse from his fanzine Comic Collector #10 (1995). Visit Readers Den's website:
