"The earlier covers are old-style DC covers. DC's cover style changed in the mid-60s. Early Silver Age DC covers tell a story, and are wordy and restrained. The mid-60s ones are sensational. They show an action scene, use more exciting…"

I usually hop back on the boards every couple months. I'm usually buying my books in 2 large orders every six months so it makes it hard to follow some of the discussions since I haven't read the books yet.

This one is just about my first ever attempt to draw anything with a computer.  I used Photobucket doo-dads.
