At the time, this pissed me off as World's Finest was one of my favorite DC titles, plus it foreshadowed the revisionist nonsense where Batman and Superman were suddenly no longer best buddies and Batman's new personality was resentful, arrogant, mistrustful, and all-around unlikable. And Superman was suddenly a naive dupe. I don't blame Frank Miller as he was just telling a story in an alternate universe timeline. I blame the shortsighted editors and dopey comics readers who decided they needed to ape Frank Miller because that meant comics were "mature," "serious," and "gritty." I guess they forgot we're reading about a millionaire who dresses up like a bat and a space alien with x-ray eyes.

top one looks like it could be a Dave Stevens cover
Edit: nevermind, it's Matt Baker
Cool thanks, I was slightly familiar with his work on Phantom Lady but these Romance comic covers show a more developed style. Baker is a fascinating guy. Not surprised his specialty was drawing 'good girls.'I cheated, but my guess would be Matt Baker.
