Well, at least in Mike Allred's DC book called SOLO.

If you are a Pre-Crisis fan and you can look at this artwork from the book without smiling, then you are not a pre-crisis fan.

The SOLO books are fine. You catch Darwin Cooke's? Now that was a funny book! Smiley

He's a big fan of the Batman TV show, so that's a real A-plus in my book!  Cheesy

I feel like kicking myself when I read he almost was on to do a METAL MEN series but it fell through. Now there's a concept that's been mistreated in the past 20 years and unjustifiably obscure even when it was good. Steve Gerber's METAL MEN run was a humorous highlight of his career, as great as his DEFENDERS.

Wow!  Nice picture -- it's definitely Pre-Crisis, but can anyone pinpoint a particular time?  We have Rita Farr, Mary Marvel in her red dress, Phantom Girl in her "Big P" uniform, a young John Stewart, a (still) youthful-looking Alan Scott, and the Earth-2 Richard Grayson in that horrid gray and yellow Batman/Robin composite costume.

Thanks for the tip about Mike Allred's Solo.  I still need to get Darwin Cooke's Solo, too.

Solo #1 (spotlighting Tim Sale) had a very nice Pre-Crisis Supergirl story, which actually resolved a dangling plotline when her comic was suddenly cancelled back in 1984!  I was very pleased that Diana Schutz remembered this loose end and provided a poignant coda.

Right under Ms. Marvel and above Hourman.

None, Mike is just cherry picking his favorite version of each character.

My favorite issue. And Tim Sale's was great, too.
Can you tell me anything more about the Supergirl story? I didn't know it concluded an old story.
