Bill Sienkiewicz 1985-1987: Selections from Who’s Who: The Definitive Directory of the DC Universe

Marvel’s 80s-era Handbooks really rocked my world. Mark Gruenwald, Eliot R. Brown and company really brought something wonderfully nerdtastic to the world of comics. And if imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, DC must have though so too. While I have a distinct preference of Marvel’s Handbooks over DC’s Who’s Who, one area where DCs offerings surpassed the Handbooks is the treatment of the art for the characters. Every character go his or her own logo and the 1-color background art provided a great way to put the character in context.

Shown above are all of Sienkiewicz’s contributions to the series and — appropriately enough — they are brimming with character.
