Almost everyone that has read a comic has seen the cover of Superman Vs. Muhammad Ali and the huge crowd that Neal Adams drew surrounding the ring. Everyone pictured had to give their permission for their likeness to be used (Some folks didn't, which led to some embarrassing portraits since the artwork was done prior to getting permission, but we'll get to those, don't worry.), but for fun, let's try to identify the almost 200 people surrounding the Fight of Last Century. Let's see who is..... RINGSIDE!!!!

I will give you a hint with each one. They can be either:
A: Show-biz personalities
B: Celebrities from either Politics, Sports, or the Arts
C: DC Staffers
D: Warner Communication Executives
E: Neal Adams Continuity Associates
F: Muhammad Ali Cornermen
G: Editors/Writers/Artists
H: DC Characters

Granted C, D, E, F, & G will be tough, but you can do it! Just remember that it's 1978!!!

This fella up in the cheap seats on the back cover is both a writer & an artist (G). The answer will be in next week's RINGSIDE!!!!

I was gonna guess Tom Selleck, but I'm stumped.

Well, you're 'marginally' close. You'll be 'mad' when you discover who it is.

Dude! No way! I saw him rushing to the bathroom last year at ComicCon, and the guy has packed on the chins and manboobs. I only got a quick glance at his badge, but I'm pretty sure.
