Check out this very nice DC cover, which was penciled by the great Joe Staton, and inked by the great Bruce Patterson, from the story titled: "The Teaching!" Joe Staton first broke through as a name in comic book art with his co-creation of E-Man at Charlton Comics in the early 70s. In the 80s, he was a major contributor to Green Lantern and SHOWCASE Comics for DC. This nice cover features a whopping "24" DC characters! This hero-packed Joe Staton cover was created for the fifth issue of the 1988 DC Universe event series Millennium. This was DC's big crossover event for 1988 following up on the success of Crisis on Infinite Earths and Legends. Series artist Joe Staton drew this piece that focuses on the "old" Guardians of the Universe (including the female Zamarons that that had recently been reunited with their male counterparts) teaching a group that are destined to become the "New Guardians", a group that received its own comic book title for a time after the event ended. We have The Justice League International [Green Lantern [Guy Gardner]; Blue Beetle [Ted Kord]; Batman [Bruce Wayne]; Martian Manhunter [J'onn J'onzz]; Mister Miracle [Scott Free]]; Flash [Wally West]; Green Lantern Corps [Green Lantern [Hal Jordan]; Green Lantern [Arisia]]; Outsiders [Geo-Force [Brion Markov]; Halo [Gabrielle Doe]]; Infinity, Inc. [Wildcat [Yolanda Montez]; Jade [Jennie-Lynn Hayden]]; Wonder Woman [Diana]; Tom Kalmaku; Betty Clawman; Takeo Yakata; Xiang Po; Celia Windward; Janwillem Kroef; Gregorio de la Vega; Nadia Safir [Zamoran]; Herupa Hando Hu [Guardian of the Universe]; Floronic Man [Jason Woodrue]! Cover was drawn on Craftint board, with Zip-a-Tone used for the space background. There is waviness on the right side of cover on back but front is not noticeable. A small tear on left side of cover towards top but it does not go into the art. Just a great cover! Compare this nice cover art to the published comic book in the red link above!
