Just wanted to give a shout out to a resource I've been relying upon while I plow into the earliest Justice League stories - the Justice League Companion. I picked this Twomorrows publication up somewhere several years ago. Sadly it is not as densely packed as many of the tomes from that group, but it does offer some good interviews with past talents who have worked on the venerable series such as Murphy Anderson, Joe Giella, Denny O'Neil, Mike Friedrich, and others such as Jerry Bails and Roy Thomas on the origins of the team.
The cover is by Bruce Timm, a direct homage to the classic cover for issue forty-eight of The Justice League of America by Mike Sekowsky and Murphy Anderson.
|Unused Alternate Dick Dillin & Joe Giella Cover to JLA #66.|
