Threeboot: Supergirl and the Legion #23 Variant Cover
I'm taking a week off from reviews as I enjoy a brief family vacation.
Had I not be on vacation, this would be the week I would review Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes #23.
That issue had a superb variant cover by Adam Hughes showing Supergirl riding a meteor.
It is just a gorgeous cover, one of my favorite Supergirl covers of this time period. I am not a fan of the belly shirt costume but this is beautiful. But there is more to the story.
In this instance, Valor is surfing a meteor rather than riding it.
They do make nice book ends. It is also fascinating to see Hughes style back then and compare it to his work now.
It has even inspired cosplay and photo shoots. Go ahead ... head to Google.
I have this cover triple signed by Mark Waid, Adam Hughes, and Barry Kitson. I met all three back at the Baltimore Comic-Con in 2010. I love this little bit of my collection.
