DC Comics Presents was a comic book published by DC Comics from 1978 to 1986 (97 issues plus 4 annuals) featuring team-ups between Superman and a wide variety of other characters of the DC Universe. (The final issue is an exception, instead featuring Superman in an "Untold Tale" involving the Phantom Zone, by Steve Gerber, following up in his limited series of the same title.) A recurring back-up feature "Whatever Happened to..." had stories revealing the status of various minor and little-used characters.
The series featured several notable stories. Issue #26 included an insert introduction story to the then-upcoming New Teen Titans series by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez. Len Wein and Jim Starlin co-created the supervillain Mongul in issue #27 (Nov. 1980). Another insert in issue #41 previewed the "new direction" Wonder Woman. In issue #47, Superman traveled to Eternia and met the Masters of the Universe. Issue #87 featured the first appearance and, in a back-up story, origin of the divergent Kal-El of the Earth Prime reality, who would become known as Superboy-Prime. The series also contained the classic, oft reprinted Alan Moore Superman/Swamp Thing story "The Jungle Line" in DC Comics Presents #85 (Sept. 1985), which featured pencils by Rick Veitch and inks by comics legend Al Williamson.
In 2004, the title DC Comics Presents was revived for eight one-shot issues, each a tribute to DC editor Julius Schwartz who had recently died. Each issue featured two stories based on a classic DC Comics cover of the past, reflecting Schwartz's frequent practice of commissioning a cover concept, then telling the writers to create a story around that cover.
