WHO'S WHO #22 (Dec 1986)
DC Comics
Excerpt: It was natural for me because, again, the characters are not just costumes, puppets that are on a string. They are living characters to me. So, when I did the first cover I got people commenting on it, which I didn’t expect. Like OK, it’s just what I do.

Of course, I couldn’t do all of them, I was doing Crisis as well, so the ones I missed, the other artists were trying to emulate the same thing. Some better than others. I know that it was John Byrne who did the one where Superman appeared. Superman is just standing there looking at the reader, he’s not interacting with anyone else on the cover — that’s the whole point of it! But for some it was easier to draw pinups of characters than it was to remember what each character can do and then have them interact with each other.
