If Comics Are Good, then BONUS Comics Must be AWESOME

Remember the Bonus Book experiment by DC?

What a cool idea.

In the late 80s, DC would randomly insert these 15-page BONUS comic books starring the characters of the book they were inserted into...for FREE.

The idea was that DC wanted to see how some new artists and writers would do on a comic book, so they gave them their try-outs in the Bonus Books.

Most of them never did much of anything, but some of them became pretty well-known.

For instance, I believe Rob Liefeld was even a DC Bonus Book Baby! So was Gordon Purcell.

Anyone else remember the Bonus Books?

Or anyone who made their debut working on a Bonus Book?
