Not so Secret Secret Revealed!

That was quick. The secret project I mentioned on Saturday is already out of the bag!

Bleedingcool.com posted the news today that DC Comics will be celebrating MAD‘s 60th anniversary with variant covers of some of their main titles including Justice League Of America, Justice League, Batman, Green Arrow, Aquaman, Flash, Wonder Woman, Superman, Supergirl, Detective Comics, Batwoman, Green Lantern and Teen Titans drawn by the Usual Gang of Idiots. Since they specifically name me as well as Sergio Aragonés, Al Jaffee and Peter Kuper, I guess there is no sense in being coy.

If you could go back in time and ask my 8 year-old self what my dream job would be, I’d answer “drawing Batman comics” without hesitation. I’m THAT CLOSE to actually doing it . . . sure, it’s a kind of technicality, but so what?

Mind you, I have not officially been assigned which title I’ll be doing the cover of, and I know for a fact it’s not going to be Batman. That one is already in the works with another artist. There is still Detective Comics, though, and I could do one of the Justice League titles and sneak Batman in. However, even if it’s one of the others sans Batman, I’ll still be living the dream.

    Draw the Flash tripping over the string on a batarang. Or have Green Lantern use his ring to make a gigantic green penny.
