In response to a question about professional disappointments, Pope revealed he was on board for a “third year of ‘All-Star Superman’” that would have seen him “share art duties with J. H. Williams III and Richard Corben.”

That would have been one of the greatest projects ever conceived!!! Imagine Dave Stevens' Superman!!!
Imagine Cliff Chiang's Batman!!!
All-Star Superman by J. H. Williams III and Richard Corben would made best-sellers!!!!
