In With the Old
New drawings, old fave characters.
I wasn’t really interested in the design when it was introduced back in the late ‘90s, but Grant Morrison made electric blue Superman so badass.
Ka-Zar the Savage, Warlord of Skartaris, Crying Freeman, Conan the Barbarian, and Tarzan of the Apes. Some of the toughest, fiercest fighters from the most dangerous realms.
I actually started the drawing last summer but shelved it until I felt like doing it. Finally inked and colored it last week.
One of my childhood favorites from Alpha Flight. Sasquatch, a.k.a. Walter Langkowski lost his monster form so his soul was mystically encased in the super-strong Box armor. It’s cool that the robot mouth was also expressive; I remember him smiling when they thought they found a suitable replacement body (which turned out to be the Hulk).
