The Coolest Gift EVER: Justice League of America #126, page 9
I was stunned, thrilled, and surprised. I never thought I would be privileged enough to own a piece of art by my all-time favorite.
Now I do, and I am beyond pleased.
There is no better gift then one that you really wanted and never expected. Jim really scored the brownie points on this one.
The kicker is that it wasn't an anniversary, holiday, or even my birthday. Jim got it for me because I have been under a great deal of stress lately and he wanted to cheer me up.
I wanted to share this with you and give some love to my hubby for getting me this. I remember this page clearly and this issue as well. Dick Dillin is one of the all time greats in my eyes.
For a quick back story, this issue was published in January 1976. The title of the story is "The Evil Connection". The story was "men only" as neither Wonder Woman or Black Canary were featured in the issue. That is the only bummer. Otherwise this story stands in my eternal memory as a part of a well done run. Good stuff.
