    I have never seen that before now, but it looks pretty cool. Adam the son of Miro?

    Would it imply its UK based?
    For the early UK Annuals had used name Miro for a bit with Randor...

    Seen it before on Euro eBays, either German or UK I think. Fairly uncommon poster, good find.

    Given this usage of "Miro," the style of the photography (similar to 1983's World annual), and the figures featured, I'm going to say this is from 1983, possibly included with an annual or maybe it's from a comic? We see the art on the back again in the Marvel UK reprint of issues 2-3 of the U.S. DC miniseries (1985 Summer Special). I took at look at the Master's Club ad from Egmont, as Scrollos mentions sending badges to folks who write in once or twice, but that club took mail at Zelah, and Egmont was in Manchester, so who knows... anyway, it's super cool!

    I got it in the mail today. It's pretty awesome. No holes in the poster so I'm guessing it was not taken out of a comic. The info on the bottom about the mail away badges intrigues me.

    It could be one of the premiums you got for signing up to the MOTU fan club run by the Egmont comics, as Streamside mentioned. It's AFAIK not one of the posters ever included in the UK MOTU, MOTU adventures or MOTU annuals issues.
