Neal Adams
Heroes Against Hunger v1 #NN (no number), 1986 - Responding to the crisis in Africa, DC produces this one-shot comic to benefit the victims. This full-length tale features Superman and Lex Luthor, but other superheroes and characters appear as well. Neal Adams and Dick Giordano provide the empathetic and tragic cover, while a community of artists take turns on the interiors. Bernie WrightsonMarshall RogersWalt Simonson and Joe Kubert all make memorable contributions. The work by John Byrne and Jack Kirby, not so much. Jim Starlin has writing credits but no artwork. While never paired before in comics, Barry Smith and Jeff Jones deliver probably the most impactful two pages (see interior page below). This also may be Smith's only work for DC. Other artists in this copper age comic include Howard Chaykin, Carmine Infantino, Tony Salmons, George Perez, Keith Giffen, Dave Gibbons, Jose Luis Garcia Lopez, Jim Aparo, Gray Morrow and others.
