While working with Art Director Josh Baker on other projects, we both realized we shared a passion for comics and when it was time to start this book, he asked me to help out in the initial phases of research and organization.
I got a chance to travel to NYC and spend time at the DC offices researching and documenting work from their archives, as well as cataloging image details, and combing through stacks and stacks of comics and collected editions scanning and helping to make some sense of 75 years worth of comic book publishing.
It was difficult to call something as fun as that work, and it was a big honor to be able to make a contribution to this project.
