The Golden Adventures of Brett Hull is a three-issue comicbook mini-series originally sold at McDonalds restaurants in St. Louis in 1994, cross-promoting Coca-Cola and The St. Louis Blues. Full creative credits below.

The series mimics Silver and Bronze-Age superhero comics of its day, with a thrilling, three-part, “time-travel-meets-hockey-meets-robotics” story (not another one of those) starring now National Hockey League Hall-of-Famer Brett Hull.

There’s even a hologram of Brett on the cover of issue #1. Here it is.
