"Pirates, I can work with that.   An artist whose work fascinates me is Alex Nino.  He is literally the only artist that I will buy a comic he drew simply for the art.  Okay, maybe Alex Toth as well.   After Supergirl left…"

"One of the "tiny cameo appearances" was in Showcase #100.  This features (almost?) every character to have appeared in the first 99 issues.  The story by Pauls Kupperberg and Levitz was great fun, and Joe Staton pulled out all…"
