Somebody needs to run a Jonny Quest game online. Maybe mid-century science adventure would be a good companion piece to Mystery Men!
Such a great character, and interesting how the character's distinctive voice and ability to "cloud men's minds" owe their origin to it being developed as a radio show. If you've never listened to them - do so NOW
Alex Ross once opined that, whatever they do to Superman or Batman or Spider-Man in modern comics, the characters will always retain their classic look in the imagination of the public. I think, in essence, modern comic adaptations of the characters is little more than authorized fan fiction - the characters have a timeless continuity all their own.
This mug just showed up on an episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Any cartoon that features Animal Vegetable Mineral Man ranks high in my estimation.
I love all things Thor (well, except for the metal quilt they have him wearing these days). The Enchantress probably tops the list, followed by Beta Ray Bill and Volstagg.
Comic strips from the Golden Age of the comic page outclass anything produced since, whether comic book or comic strip. Thimble Theatre after the introduction of Popeye (yes, my favorite superhero) is among the best, along with Little Nemo in Slumberland and Dick Tracy. This one is easily my favorite piece by Doc Shaner - I only wish it was available as a print.
The Popeye of the Marvel universe.
In the world of Hyboria, I imagine gruff tavern goers discuss Belit vs. Red Sonja in the same reverent tones that Americans from my generation discuss Ginger vs. Mary Ann and Betty vs. Wilma. For the record - I'm going brunette in all three categories.
Just stopped by to wish you a happy holiday and award you 1,000xp. The custom fit platemail will be up for prize again shortly. Thanks for playing. That was a lot of fun.ReplyDelete
I'll get that platemail yet. Happy Holidays! Keep on whisking.ReplyDelete
Wow. Great stuff! Does he do comissions? He'd be awesome for some City related stuff.ReplyDelete

Nah, it'd be Belit vs. Valeria. At least in Howard's Hyborian Age...
Taranaich - good point!ReplyDelete
Trey - He was taking them in Oct/Nov, but it sounds like no new commissions in Dec. I'd just shoot the guy an email - you never know!
Been a fan of his stuff for a while. He does great Captain Marvel stuff.ReplyDelete
