Inspired by The Lost 100-Pagers and Super-Team Family: The Lost Issues, I've decided to create my own take on comic book covers. These will be all-original art illustrated by myself. Thank you and a good afternoon. Excelsior!

Exit: Light, Enter: Night

When I first thought up this cover, I was of the mind that Doctor Destiny would fit really well as a foe of the Sandman. Little did I know that the two had already crossed paths in a Justice League of America annual.

I only had the first issue of The Sandman. I never saw any of the six issues that came after, except for images on the web. The next time I saw him, he was guest-starring in Wonder Woman, and then found out that he committed suicide (in Neil Gaiman's Sandman title) due to loneliness in the Dream Dimension. Bummer.

So, Beware You Deadly Demons...

No other comics character, to my knowledge, has flip-flopped between hero and villain as many times as Namor. I guess that's why I find him interesting. I think I first encountered the character in Super-Villain Team-Up, then was surprised to watch him as one of the superheroes featured in Marvel's 1960's cartoon line-up (they aired those in my country during the 1970's, hence me watching them more than a decade late). That's why my younger self was confused if he was hero or villain.

I miss the days when the comic book annual were treated as specials. Often, the stories in the annuals were, dare I say it, better than those in the monthlies. Sometimes they even had painted covers, a rarity during the 1980s.
