In 1993, DC editor Mike Carlin and I did a 4-issue METAL MEN mini-series. This was going to be the cover for the first issue, but after it was drawn, DC decided to add a metallic effect to the cover. In order to take better advantage of the technology, we decided to produce a new cover, highlighting the powers of the Metal men. As a result, this was unseen for almost twenty years — until now!
