One of the great pleasures for me since my move to New York is the ability to hop a train and be at the offices of DC Comics just a few minutes later.
When DC's Adam Philips let me know that DCU Editorial Art Director Mark Chiarello was a big Overstreet fan, I asked to meet him.
Adam introduced us, and I'm happy to say he turned out to be a great guy. The reason that made me particularly happy was that I've been a big fan of his work for a long time (I think the Terminal City covers were the first time I noticed is work).
At any rate, we chatted and I asked if he'd be interested in doing a cover for the 40th anniversary edition of the Guide. He said yes rather emphatically, and here we are!
