    In the 60s when comics truly were king, you either bought DC or Marvel, never both. (Your dad bought either Chevrolet or Ford, never either.) i’m sure there were great artists working for both publishers. What I remember as the highlight break-through of revolutionary art was when Green Arrow joined up with Green Lantern—the artwork jumped off the page—and the characteres actually left rheir frames! Deep dark inkings! That was great comic book art!
