Not a Gag -- Sorry, Laura, I wasn't kidding about Seth's Coober Skeber cover being the best superhero cover of the past decade.

Seth's subtle, post-iconic treatment captures the lost innocence of the Silver Age with grace and an appealing sentimentality, being far kinder to the characters and their fans than anyone who has been officially charged with maintaining the franchise in the past 15 years or so.

For another example of the same thing, there's more entertainment quality and sense of wonder in this Seth JSA drawing than in every issue of the current DC series combined. (This one comes from the sublime and beautiful Vernacular Drawings book published by Drawn and Quarterly.)
