Cover Me: Frank Miller at DC

When most folks think of Frank Miller in the 1980s, they more than likely think of Daredevil, Wolverine, Ronin, The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Year One, or Elektra. How many of you remember what Frank did to pass the time while he was working on those ground-breaking masterpieces, though? One thing he did was draw covers for a handful of DC mags. Remember any of these?

No? Yes? What about the hoopla surrounding the fact that Miller was the cover artist for DC's Superman: The Secret Years mini-series?

What other comicbook work did the talented Mr. Miller do during the 80s? Come back next week for the answer!

I love that 'Mazing Man cover. When is DC going to reprint MM, anyway?

i definitely remember those Superman: The Secret Years covers... i also remember the jarring bait and switch feeling i got when i opened the book and saw the Swan/Schaffenberg artwork inside...
