Dick Giordano (July 20, 1932 – March 27, 2010) Tribute
I figured the best way to pay tribute to Dick would be to share a favorite of mine of his work....
Jonni Thunder is a female private detective who first appeared in a four issue miniseries from 1985 named Jonni Thunder AKA Thunderbolt, written by Roy Thomas. A small gold statue gave her the power to turn into a human thunderbolt, while leaving her body behind. In later issues of Infinity, Inc., the thunderbolt was revealed to be a hostile alien energy-being, who was defeated by being reimprisoned in the statue, leaving Jonni without powers. Jonni existed on Earth-Two before Crisis and was briefly scene on the merged Earth resulting from Crisis, attending a detectives convention.
