|The other day, I did some of my first writing
for this site in a really long, long
It was an intro to a series of my elementary school class photographs, grades kindergarten through sixth. WHY did I post those pix? Well, it's all explained in the preface. It's all pretty self-indulgent, but hey, if you're at all curious, follow this link.
Otherwise, we're back with another set of sketch cards: a couple of cover redos, a quartet featuring a new theme, and five random selections. Take a look, won'tcha?...
|And here's your customary Ebay link!

|First off, big thanks to everyone associated
with the New Jersey-based Wild Pig Comics--I
had a wonderful time guesting at their comics
convention yesterday! I had fun talking with
the fans who attended, as well as with the
other guests! Gracias, guys--hope to see
you all again sometime soon!!
Now, as to what we have on display here today, we have color cards depicting three pulp icons, a pair of classic covers originally delineated by Kirby and Ditko, but we lead off with an illo featuring Spider-Man versus The Sinister 38!!
That's, right---EVERY single baddie the amazing one faced off against during the webslinger's initial Ditko-drawn era! The Chameleon! The Burglar! Meteor Man (..or was that The Looter?...)! Just a guy named Joe! JJJ commandeering the Spider-Slayer! The Living Brain! The Terrible Tinkerer! And even a few you've actually HEARD of!
(Click the image below for a closer look.)

|Time marches on this last day of March (yup,
it'll soon be the night of March 31st--get a good night's sleep, Clark)--here's
your last look at a group of freshly minted
Hembeck cartoon cards!
And, as always, here's the Ebay link! Enjoy!

|Today we've got all sorts of stuff to share
First off, over thirty members of the Justice League of America (click the image below to see it larger), including my first ever (and likely last ever) depictions of Vibe and Gypsy (I THINK I may've drawn Vixen and Steel somewhere along the line, but those two, nope...)!
Then, a few covers, including another delicious Lee Elias pre-Code Harvey Comics tableau, as well as one of my own personal favorites, GREEN LANTERN #20 (indulge me for posting a larger than life image, as well as the card sized pic), which I believe appealed to my subconscious cuz the color scheme reminded me of Christmas! Plus, I really dug The Flash.
Followed up by a few miscellaneous characters, including Wonder Woman in her brand new TV togs; a patriotic associate of Tomahawk, Miss Liberty; and Hawkman's erstwhile antagonist, Matter Master, who has a wonderfully goofy costume I truly relished drawing!
Grab a peek!
|32 JUSTICE LEAGUERS!!|

Legion of Super-Heroes (29, if you count

|After six issues headlining MY GREATEST ADVENTURE,
the folks at DC Comics simply switched the
book's title over to THE DOOM PATROL in early
1964, which explains how a number 86 can
actually be considered a number 1 issue.
Bob Brown provided the art, as he did for
virtually all the team's covers, even though
Bruno Premiani illustrated practically every
interior story over the title's run. Hey,
that's just how they did things back then.
