    DC Comics
    George Perez Justice League of America #192 Cover Original Art (DC, 1981).

    This cover spotlights the "Quest for Genesis" story that begins the true (and secret) origin of the Silver Age Red Tornado. This was an early DC cover for Perez, who was already a fan-favorite from his time on Marvel's Avengers. His first DC work was on a Firestorm story less than a year previous to this in Flash #289. Red Tornado (II) was an android from Earth-2 who came to Earth-1 and joined the JLA. Featuring almost all of the JLA heavy hitters... Flash, Green Lantern, Superman, Aquaman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Firestorm, this cover is power-packed! Created in ink and white paint over graphite on DC Sparta Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". The logo, DC bullet, header info, UPC box, and cover blurbs are all stat paste-ups. Signed in the original art by Perez just under the chair (it looks like the chair's shadow), and again in the lower margin. Most of the paste-ups are discolored and there is a bit of glue residue on the Flash's arm. Overall in Very Good condition.

    (excerpt)

    Anyway, I get to the end of the tale and read the letter column: "I just finished reading issue #192 of Justice League of America. Stunning. This month's tale was the best of all my DCs I picked up. Centering around one member of the group (Red Tornado) and at the same time involving the other heroes was an excellent idea. Even though there were 25 pages, I thought that my reading ended too soon. Red Tornado has fast become one of my favorite heroes. It is about time that he starts acting like the hero I know he can be. As for the art, what can I say? Welcome back, George. Your pencils have been missed (although Buckler did a very admirable job in your absence). Besides being my favorite artist, you draw the best Red Tornado this side of the border (and the other side, too!) Todd McFarlane - Calgary, Alberta, Canada"

    I love finding gems like this. I wonder where good old Red ranks now? This is unfair to dredge up a letter from almost 20 years ago. What I wrote in 1981 I would not want to see published today. But I only employ this example to prove a strange point about myself.

    Odds are Todd McFarlane has not read a DC/Marvel superhero comic book in a very looong time. Lawsuits, merchandising and traveling with Mark McGuire's (home run) balls is the kind of stuff that occupies his days at this point in his life. I don't begrudge him this, I'm happy that company-owned books and characters are beneath him now, as the characters he creates can make him more of a profit then the income he was cheated out of when he did not own the characters. Whatever. I've never been able to read Spawn myself, but I'm glad enough people can that Todd can pay his bills and then some.
