I wish I would have come across this earlier.
Bill Reed over at Comics Should Be Good started (and finished) a great list of things to love about comics. In his words: "a daily, yearlong look at what makes comics great. Some reasons are obvious, some are totally obscure; all of them, however, are reasons to love comics."
I love the idea, and the list is great!
This has given me the ridiculous notion that it would be a good idea to do a sketch-a-day to go along with the list. Is it even possible? We'll find out together.

Did this for the "Elemental" Jam over at The Drawing Board
Zook was the silver age sidekick to J'onn Jonzz, the Martian Manhunter and had a vast array of abilities, including the ability to change his temperature from freezing cold to boiling hot, and to change his shape at will. He could also read minds with those wild antennae.
Whatever, Happy Holidays.

This piece is for December's superhero jam, "Elemental" over at The Drawing Board.org.
The Air-Walker's original name was Gabriel Lan. He was a member of the alien race of Xandarians, until he was been deemed worthy to be the new Herald of Galactus.

Once again I'm going to use the "sidekick" theme over at the Drawing Board to tie into the Illustration Friday subject "scale".
Here we have Etta Candy the once, how do they say... ...um, ...Rotund young sidekick of Wonder Woman during the 1940s.
She has since been retconed into a career Air Force officer. Much more respectable, but not nearly as fun & sassy.
At some point I would like to color this pic, but I guess only time will tell if I've got the... well, ...time.

I'm hoping to double-dip with this post. Using it for the Illustration Friday topic and also use it for the "sidekick" jam over at the Drawing Board. Plus, I don't think you can go wrong with Jughead. Did you know that his full name is Forsythe Pendleton "Jughead" Jones III ?! The third?! Seriously?
