    Excerpt: And what was interesting in working on that book with Gerry Conway — the creator, with Al Milgrom, of Firestorm — is that he was giving me the same exact scripts he gave Al. … So basically I have to draw this without looking like I’m drawing Al’s book now.

    So, I deliberately couldn’t look at Al Milgrom’s artwork so I could pace it my way, lay it out my way, have the angles being my interpretation of it, but I thought, “Gerry got paid twice now.” (Laughter.) This is the same script! But it was fun.

    What was interesting is that if you saw the credits on the first issue that I did, it says Romeo Tanghal is the inker, and it wasn’t Romeo. It was the inker who did the rest of the series, Bob Smith. So, it was just a mistake on their part.
