1985 San Diego Comic Con Program

With the 2009 San Diego Comic Con about to start, I thought today was a great time to post this DC-centric cover to the 1995 con, featuring many of the company's biggest stars (plus a few favorites of the past!).

If you look close, you can see Aquaman hanging out alongside Blue Devil and Swamp Thing:
I can't quite place the art style, although the giant Darkseid head looks like Keith Giffen's work to me.

But since the rest of the piece doesn't look like his stuff, I'm betting whoever did draw this used a shot of the character by Giffen as a guide, the way Starfire looks like the classic George Perez pose. Sadly, we don't have a bigger version of this beauty to be able to do a closer inspection.

Thanks to F.O.A.M.er Ilke Hincer for the tip!
