Art is by the incredibly talented Fred Hembeck.

On a related topic: favorite all-time issues? Well, I obviously have
great affinity for that Star Wars, and I hold Uncanny X-Men #125 in
high regard, as it was my first association with the merry mutants.
But my favorite comic of all time still has to be Justice League of
America #200. It's the later-eight members of the League vs. the
original seven, who were possessed by the aliens they fought in their
first adventure. You had 72 pages (with a spine!), a cracking good
story by Gerry Conway and art by George Perez, Brian Bolland, Pat
Broderick, Dick Giordano, Carmine Infantino, Joe Kubert, Jim Aparo,
and Gil Kane. In my mind that will always be tough to beat.
I broach this topic with you for a
couple of reasons. I’m always genuinely interested as to why or how
people get into certain things. And I wonder why the readership is
regarded as “shrinking”. Consider the surfeit of comics films that are
out these days, couple that with the popularity of Justice League on
Cartoon Network, and multiply by the old-school issuances on DVD.
Factor in ABC Family’s prodigious Marvel animated block, and I wonder
why the transition isn’t being made. Are kids just sticking with video
games? Is the audience gravitating to manga? Or is the loss of the
grocery store spinner rack more devastating than we thought?
