Trapped in the Phantom Zone

"Trapped in the Phantom Zone" from Superman Adventures #22 (DC, 1998) by Mark Millar, Aluir Amancio and Terry Austin
Yeah, Mark Millar used to write all-ages comics, and pretty good ones too. I was a huge fan of the Superman Animated series and of the WB Animated DC Universe as a whole, and am not ashamed to tell you I got Superman Adventures every month, right alongside Superman's in-continuity books, and even after I'd dropped them. At 66 issues, the tie-in book lasted 2½ years longer than the TV series (which is a shame for the underrated TV series) and was filled with fun stories, often serving as sequels to those of the show, return engagements for villains and the like, as well as animated versions of beloved Silver or Bronze Age stories (they did Kryptonite No More, for example). Need to reread some of these to cleanse my Super-palate, I think.
