I have more in B&B but I can't really name those.
Whew! that took a long time! I had to go through the database on the realms to get them all.
The Le: Of the ones you worked on, which ones are you the most proud of?
James: It is hard to pick a favourite but I would have to say the Ultimate Hulk I did for Avengers is one of my all time favourites. The Batman from Worlds Finest also ranks up there. Storm, and Nightwing and Starfire I really liked as well. One of my favourites was Powerman and Iron fist but the production copy of that figure was altered from my original and I was really dissapointed by the finished product.
Actually many of my favourite and best work is in HOT and B&B so I can't mention them, that is why I was happy that they will finally be released.
