The Golden Bat

The Golden Bat

I mentioned the other day on Bluesky that I wanted to draw more obscure and old – and most likely non-DC & Marvel superheroes. Now that I’m no longer posting on Instagram, and no longer trying to hound after non-existent views, I wanna draw more weird stuff (though I do still love drawing Batman, Superman, …

Patreon Reward: The Flash

Always Wally, but Sometimes – happily – Jay.

Dr. Fate

So, weird useless fact about me: I own almost every issue of a published (solo) comic (reprint or otherwise) of Swamp Thing, Dr. Fate, and The Spectre. I am however missing Golden Age appearances of Fate & Spectre, which have been reprinted as DC Archive Editions. Which are also out of print and hard to …

1182. Black Panther

Hey did you know there was a Golden Age character called Black Panther? You do now.

1181. War Eagle

Absolutely the most ridiculous Golden Age superhero I’ve ever seen or heard of. Look him up, it’s a doozy.

725. Stardust, The Super Wizard

My local comic shop has a giant hardcover collection of Fletcher Hanks’ works that I keep eyeing. It’s incredibly tempting to buy & read and delve into not only the “making shit up as we go”-ness of his stories, but sheer and utter insanity – like, possibly legitimate, medical insanity.
