A great metropolitan newspaper

Posted: February 8th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | 2 Comments »

Back in another life I used to work in the newsroom of a daily paper, and I’m happy to say Curt Swan and Al Williamson got the look of one pretty dead-on in this great picture of the Daily Planet. Well, except that everyone is smiling and looks as if they got more than four hours of sleep. (Everyone but Perry White, that is, because he’s a REAL newspaper man, dammit!)

This page was originally published in Who’s Who in the DC Universe #6, and I blatantly yanked it from the Tumblr site for the Fire and Water Podcast. The podcast is co-hosted by friend of the Post Rob Kelly (also of The Aquaman Shrine) and Shag (Firestorm Fan); the show is well worth following, so be sure to check it out.

Another reason I love this page? The first four paragraphs are just pure, uncut crazy.
