Z is for Zorro

Tweet Well folks, we’ve reached the end of the series. Z is for Zorro! It took significantly longer than 26 weeks, but here we are. I’m a little bit more experienced, you’re a little bit more aware of the absurdity of many comic book characters- I’d say we both came out ahead. I’ll be starting […]

W is for Will Magnus

Tweet Creator and leader of the Metal Men, Doc Will Magnus has survived cancellations and disastrous revisions to be one of the most fun, high-concept characters in the DC Universe. Doc and his team  of sentient robots, each named after and having the physical properties of a particular metal, are some of my favorite characters […]

N is for Namora

Tweet I had no idea what I was going to do for N. The I read Jeff Parker and Leonard Kirk’s Marvel Comics miniseries, Agents Of Atlas. Namora is, as it turns out, an awesome character. (Apparently hanging out with a kung fu superspy, a Greek goddess, a talking gorilla, a Uranian spaceman and an […]

L is for Lobster Johnson and Lady Blackhawk

Tweet This week’s entry features two awesome old-school adventurers. Lobster Johnson is Mike Mignola’s other brilliant pulp creation: A mythical 1930s New York City vigilante known for branding criminals with his trademark lobster claw symbol, and who eventually showed up in Hellboy stories as an evil-battling ghost. Lady Blackhawk is DC Comics’ crack WWII flying […]

K is for Kilowog vs. Klaw

Tweet Kilowog, DC Comics’ Green Lantern of Space Sector 647! Ulysses Klaw, a supervillain physicist who wears a sound-emitting gun on his right arm and fights the Fantastic Four and Black Panther! Yeah, so, I like Kilowog. I’d never even HEARD of Klaw until he was suggested for this series. But that’s the fun! I […]

I is for Iron Fist

Tweet I was gonna do DC’s JLA member Ice, but then I remembered that she’s really, really boring. So I looked around a bit. There aren’t very many cool female characters whose name start with “I”. Irma Geddon from Top 10 was the only good choice until I remembered this chick. That’s right! It’s Wu […]

F is for Firebrand

Tweet Firebrand is a character I’d never even heard of before the name popped up in the comments for this series. I’d think that big poofy sleeves combined with fire-based superpowers would be tempting fate. But hey, there are worse costume choices out there! Any thoughts for the next letter, G?

D is for Deadman! E is for Elongated Man!

Tweet I know, I know. I totally missed posting anything last week. To make up for it, today’s post covers two letters of the alphabet! Both minor DC Comics characters, and both very fun to draw.

C is for Captain Carrot

Tweet That’s right! It’s Captain Carrot, leader of the famed Zoo Crew! I’ve been itching to draw him for a long time now, though this entry was a toss-up between the two Captains– Captain Carrot and Dav Pilkey’s Captain Underpants. I couldn’t translate Cap’n U to my style without making him incredibly creepy… but maybe I’ll […]

B is for Batroc

Tweet That’s right! Batroc The Leaper, Captain America’s French kickboxer foe. He’s awesome. No, really! The guy’s just so happy to be in the big leagues, you have to cut him some slack for the hilarious costume and zee atrocious Fronch accent! Seriously, though, I just love how goofy he looks.
