Something I drew back in the 1980's for DC Comics

This piece was done for the 1980's Who's Who in the DC Universe, published by and TM and copyright DC Comics 2007, featuring a slew of DC characters with names starting with the letter "R". It was inked by my pal Mike Machlan, (who I shared a studio with at the time) and then rejected by DC editorial because I broke their format of having figures in a real space, relating to each other size-wise instead of collage-like, as I did them here. Artist Ernie Colon did a quick substitute, and that's what was printed. And hilariously, a few issues later they started doing collage type layouts themselves. Too late for this piece though. Well, that's showbiz folks. Enjoy! Best, JER
