Which character most enjoyed his appearance in Super Friends #18?

Amazo, the android who really likes his job destroying things and fighting superheroes...






...or self-satisfied Superman?








********************

All of those images are drawn by the great J. Bone, and in most cases they're just small parts of single panels. Bone really fills the panels with so many fun little details that scanning the background players' expressions is enormously rewarding.

If Super Friends #18, which Sholly Fisch scripted, doesn't win the Eisner for best single issue next year, there is no justice in the universe. Because, you see, not only does the comic have smug, smirking Superman and happy dancing Amazo on, like, half it's pages, it also has two other things going for it:

1) Sad Batman:



2.) The Bizarro/Bizarro Flash race:
(Their expressions in that second panel just kill me).

Hooray! Thanks for the love! How can I not draw smiles when drawing such a fun story!

I even drew myself into the third panel on the page where the amusement park crowd thank the Bizarroes for a job well done! I'm in a green shirt with glasses on the far right! Cameos are fun!

Thanks, Caleb.

The happy/excited Superman in the scan where everyone else is sad/frightened is awesome.

Hey - Amazo and Black Adam have interchangeable heads!

And if they ever do a Superfriend/Whatever-Marvel's-Equivalent-Is cross-over, Namor can play, too!

Superfriends is so friggin' cute. It's too bad the "DCU Elementary" project fell through. Oh, well.

In some of those panels, Superman really reminds me of Blossom from the Powerpuff Girls.

Probably because of the smugness.

Blossom would pwn superlamo

Obviously. But she'd be smug about it.
