Are we still allowed to use algebraic expressions or was that for a limited time only?

345 = (359 - 15) + 1

I've thought about getting my copy signed by Jim Shooter as well. I would have to send it to him as I doubt he will ever make to the Canadian east coast.

@Maritimer - He's a very nice guy to talk to. From what I had read about him, you would think he'd be pretty unapproachable as he reportedly butted heads and rustled feathers at a few places. When I saw him a few years ago at a convention, there was not another person waiting to see him, so we chatted for like 10 or 15 minutes. He even had a couple of binders with him with artwork from various people that he had worked with and some copies of comics too. At the time, he did not charge for his autograph. In fact he said that he didn't believe he should, since he was being paid to appear there, and especially since he was mostly an editor. He also said that he didn't consider himself an artist (but he's listed as an artist on Adventure #346 and on several other issues), claiming that the inkers did all the work to make his work look presentable.

Right, Adventure #346 was Shooter's first Legion issue, and the story's penciled art is his, but heavily "finished" by Sheldon Moldoff. That story was really the one Shooter truly drew; as a fan he'd drawn the story on his own, and sent it to Weisinger, who was impressed by the storytelling. Weisinger bought the story and had Moldoff work on it, making it presentable for publication. This was the start of Shooter's tenure as the Legion writer.

As a teenager writing the Legion series and other DC stories, Shooter would write his scripts in comic book format--that is, panels, drawings, word balloons, captions--instead of in the typical typed script format. Since Shooter drew his scripts, the Legion pencilers, usually Curt Swan, could use Shooter's drawings as a "guide"...though of course Swan would make changes and made the art "100 times better" (as Shooter has said). In some books about the Legion, such as TwoMorrow's Legion Companion, there are reprints of some of Shooter's art, and you can the differences in what Shooter would draw and the actual finished product by Swan, Pete Costanza, etc. However Shooter is still credited as the layout artist for those issues.
