1996–1997 Wizard : Series 4 Chromium Cards



1996–1997 Wizard Magazine Series 4 Chromium - #14-69 - Superman Blue

Wizard Series 4 Chromium Cards were released by Wizard magazine from April 1996 to November 1997. One card was included with each monthly issue. The promos are printed on chromium card stock. The mid-1990s have jokingly been referred to as the "chromium age" of comic books due to overuse on variant covers and gimmick novelties.

Wizard #69 (May 1997) included promo card #14 featuring "Electric Blue" Superman from the 1997 "Superman-Blue" storyline. The image was penciled by Dan Jurgens and inked by Brett Breeding. The biography text was written by Dan Jurgens.
