Well, just A Single Wonder Woman this time out, though there is more than one image of a skunk in this Monday’s new scans of ORIGINAL ART. The Wonder Woman is from the lovely and aforementioned SUPERMAN AND BATMAN Magazine (a moment of silence for this forgotten hero of publishing….). This was a poster insert (from a series of eight, a different DC hero in every issue) that ran on the inside STAPLED middle page of the mag. So WW was the centerfold, so to speak. And you guys thought Marge Simpson was the only cartoon character to pose for the staple section of a magazine! Diana did it ALL first. You know, I’ll bet this, and the Hawkman of last week, would look nice in colour. I will dig those out for tomorrow, promise. The WW has some lovely colour, if I recall, and I think I coloured it.
And WOO HOO! The last of my unsold pages from the Pepe Le Pew story I did with Sam Agro for Looney Tunes Magazine, all going up in the all for sale gallery. I can’t price ’em, myself. My wife doesn’t trust me. (I used to sell Batman Adventures covers for seventy five bucks and my wife smacked me around after I’d sold three or four!). Sewer Transformer aside, I really like the “wet Pepe” image in the middle of the page. I couldn’t think of an episode where Pepe got wet, so it was daunting to see if I could make it look “on model” without any reference for that appearance. I hope I pulled it off.
Is there anything more fun to draw than the Chrysler Building? Perhaps sewer crocodiles with an eye patch. And here it is, all in one page? Sometimes I have a good job.
I got to work in a little “EC” style lettering in the POW! POW! stuff, I notice. (That last line sounded more like Beat Poetry than I meant it to.)
It was great fun doing the two or three Looney Tunes jobs I did. The pages with Pussyfoot and Bugs Bunny on ’em are long gone. I think the Daffy pages are gone too. C’est la vie!
