JL #40 ".....Dangerous Brain Storm!" Forward
So....THIS issue got bumped to the back-burner again, for a whole month. I decided to actually take it to Japan with me, where I managed to finish the majority of it. I came back last month and "cleaned it up" and then started coloring it.
Of course, the death of Yvonne Craig last week casts a pall over the whole endeavor. I originally wrote this story as a loving tribute to two great Carmine Infantino characters; after I had started on it, the great artist passed away at age 88. Now Ms Craig has passed on, too. So it has become a sad tribute to two great influences on my life.
While writing this story, nearly a year ago, I went around and asked some of my friends for randowm menaces for the Justice League to face. I figured that if Brain Storm relied on his stellar helmet, I could rely on others' ideas. So I took a few of their suggestions and created the Final Battle of this story. Hence their credits on the Title page.
You'll finally get to see the conclusion to "Like A Moth To A Flame" this week. Hopefully it will entertain you!
