Original Art Stories: The REAL Von Eeden Black Canary
"When always-absentee Editor Denny O'Neil finally came into the office weeks later, and I broached this to him, he told me Gorfinkel had said that I'd refused to make the changes - so the poor dear had no choice but to resort to DC's Production Department, in order to correct the mistakes. So every picture of Black Canary in that Huntress issue was inked over some faceless Production Department person's repencilling of my original work." The series was cancelled after issue #12, by which time Trevor had ceased drawing the covers, only completing the cover art for issue #10 and leaving the book completely after handing in issue #11. Even now, nearly twenty years after the event, the saga still leaves such a bad taste in Trevor's mouth that he has expressed a desire to see the original art for the issues in question destroyed forever lest people think that he drew all of the art credited to him.
Revealed here, for the very first time, are some of Trevor Von Eeden's original penciled pages, side by side with the finished/published versions for the contentious issue #9. You can decide if DC was right in having it redrawn or if Trevor's costume design was superior...and you can catch up with Trevor Von Eeden at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con - stop by and say hello.
