So, so clean.
Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez was born March 26, 1948. The 68-year-old is perhaps best known for his work on DC’s merchandising. His images of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest are everywhere. Heck, just last night I bought a Batman and Robin cup with his classically old-school style on it at the supermarket. And just recently, a style book he did for DC in the ’80s made the rounds to much fanfare.
Anyway, here’s our 13 COVERS selection for Mr. Garcia-Lopez’s birthday. I also want to mention that he will be a guest at East Coast Comicon just across the river from New York City in April. If you want to come meet him, ticket info is here.
(My standard caveat: This is a subjective list and not a ranking of any kind. This is pretty much what I dig and you may feel very differently. So, rather than beef about a cover you don’t see, instead join in the fun and share your own choices in the comments section or in whatever social-media thread you saw this.)
