1980 DC Comics Talent Search Ad! Batman! Flash! Joe Orlando!

From the pages of a 1980 COMICS JOURNAL, here is an ad shouting for young art aspirants to send in their stuff! I was too young still (10th grade) to participate then, but this woulda been darned exciting to newcomers! I assume any winners got to spend 1981 doing art and cover corrections for free, or very little pay...Dig that great art by Jose Garcia Lopez! The inks look to be by Dick Giordano, and the Joe Orlando portrait seems to be by Ross Andru!
I later got to work with Joe Orlando while doing artwork for the DC Special Projects Department. Click to enlarge!
