This week we here at the Legion of Super-Bloggers are reviewing the 300th issue of The Legion of Super-Heroes!
As part of that celebration we are presenting today just the cover art for that issue....and reminding you of the "Name The Artist" contest that was mentioned in this issue!
Editor Karen Berger listed 34 artists and told us that each of the 28 characters above was drawn by a DIFFERENT artist/artistic team.
So who drew which character?
Take a good look and make some guesses.
The answers after the jump!
The answers to this contest were printed in LSH #306. The winner was David Zimmerman from St. Louis, who correctly identified 21 of the 28 Legionnaires' artists!
