Heroes Against Hunger

Heroes for Hope

One day somebody at DC or Marvel got the idea to do a "famine relief" book, and the next day they were both doing one. I participated in both.



In pure comic book terms, the differences between these two covers, as they approach the same concept, show clearly the differences between DC and Marvel at the time. When I started working at Marvel, Merry Marie Severin often contrasted DC's propensity for crying and complexity on covers with Marvel's poster-like simplicity.
