Also, I loved coloring the JLAers being teleported. I thought I did a good job with those scenes. One last pat on my back before we move on to what I didn't like....for some reason, I really
REALLY like the drawing of Hawkman reproduced below. As a kid I never liked JLA artist Mike Sekowsky's version of Hawkman. I much preferred Murphy Anderson's version, and then, later, Dick Dillin's version. In the mid 70s I came across an illustration of him by Terry Austin that I LOVED. From that day to this, that is the "template" I use in my head when I draw Katar Hol.
The one thing I really don't like about this issue is Green Arrow's nightmare. I wanted to do something Escher-like or Dali-like, but I ended up doing something simple and not at all good! The idea was fine, I think, but the execution was not.
Besides that, the one thing I sort of regret now is that I didn't manage to wrap this story up in one part. I kept thinking that two-parters when done sparringly would be okay. However, except for maybe the first one (The Time Lord story) NONE of my two-parters really worked. In hind-sight I wish I had had Hawkman and Elongated Man rush off to find Dr. Destiny and stop him in a few pages here. Of course, you haven't read the conclusion yet so I should probably not say anything....never mind. Let me end this AFTERWARD with this image, the composition I swiped from TEAM TITANS' artist Kevin Maguire. For some odd reason, I didn't end up using it as the cover of the next issue! :-(
