Yesterday was the what, Today is the who. Read on for the actors John picks to play the Justice League!
So how DO you go about bringing the World’s Greatest Superheroes to film? John has a few ideas.
In the world of comics, Bernie Wrightson was one of the greats. He was the Master of the Macabre, an artist’s artist, and by all accounts, a very nice guy. John shares his memories of one of best artists comics have ever produced.

But before John Byrne got a regular gig telling STAR TREK stories, he was just like the rest of us – A STAR TREK fan who’d occasionally make reference to it in his everyday life. It just so happened that Byrne’s everyday life was as a popular writer/artist of comic books. So I thought it’d be fun to see how many ST references I could pick out of Byrne’s classic comic book work.

I thought I’d dig up some of the ones I remember.
