Y'know, Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez is a damn good artist, and drew the iconic images that people associate with various characters because he did the art the licensing department used, but he never really had a major run on any book.

Garcia-Lopez pencilled the first twelve issues of what turned-out to be a twenty-issue series; that's a somewhat major run.

He also designed every aspect of a rather well-realized sci-fi universe, which resulted in this being a much better comic-book than its title would lead most to believe.

God I'm old- I really enjoyed that book.  There were a lot of attempts at producing interesting multi-species spacefaring groups in that period, and it was one of my favorites.

He's...awesome.  That ageism crap needs to stop in the comic-book industry; people are missing out on some great artists who can draw the hell out of pages far better than some of the people doing it now.

The iconic Wonder Woman artist.  'nuff said.

I don't think Dan Jurgens or Jerry Ordway could get pissed on by the NuDC, but they can still draw circles around most of the artists currently used in comics.

...and on a monthly schedule, too.

In today's comics, it seems you either have artists who are on time and horrible, or good and bi-monthly (if you're lucky).

You know, if someone within DC actually reprinted out some WW stories with JLGL's art and put them out as brand-new stories they'd sell like hotcakes.

Did they sell the first time around?

Hell, yes.  I credit him in the 80's and Timm/Dini in the 90s with making DC a good brand again.

Considering her first series lasted all the way up to COIE, I guess it did. ^_^

Jurgens = Awesome, simply awesome.

Ordway...sigh, I'll always be greatful to him for "The Power of Shazam".  The art was...okay; having the Marvel family in their own series: awesome.

Ordway only did the art for the Power of Shazam OGN and issues 42-47 of the series. The rest of the series was drawn by Pete Krause, who also did Irredeemable with Mark Waid.

/had Power of Shazam hardbound a few years back since I knew it would never be released in trade. Great series. Too bad Cap has been screwed up approximately half a dozen times since then.

The only two drawbacks about TPOS was the whole "Marvel family divides the TPOS" bit and how they still seemed like they were stuck in the 50s with their lingo and mannerisms.  Would've loved a more updated but still down to earth versions of Billy, Mary and Freddy.

Captain Marvel, like Plastic Man, really doesn't work outside of the original 1940s-1950s runs. Or, it's very hard to find people who can write the characters correctly without wanting to rastify them 10%.

Well...they could've just read 70s/80s era Spidey and gotten a good idea how to write the three of them.

Ah, 80s Spider-Man... that brings up a couple of names that would probably still be capable of damn good work, but aren't working on a TV show so they don't get to write comics anymore...

Roger Stern and Tom DeFalco.

To be honest, who the fark cares?  If they can write the hell out of a character or characters, bring 'em on board.

Aaaaaaaand speaking of another character that can't catch a break: the lovely Firestar.

So, the way that went down, I'd guess she did the damage to herself before Hank Pym beat her immune system into protecting her from her powers?

According from what I could read in her last appearance, pretty much yeah.  The years she spent using her powers caught up with her, resulting in breast cancer and a masectomy.  Didn't read too far but a least one had to be removed, all the while she had been attending college.
