In my high school and early college days, I drew comics non-stop. My comics were not typically superhero comics. They were humor-based, revolving around the zany citizens of Moundsville.
Though they weren't the focus, there were a few superhero types inhabiting the city.
Even my superheroes were not to be taken seriously. They were spoofs of the genre, sort of like in The Tick. In some cases this worked okay. In others, they were cheesier even than they were meant to be.
So this new series of illustrations revisits those cheesy superhero characters. I've updated them for the new age! I'll be posting them here over the next few weeks. I hope you enjoy being introduced to them as much as I enjoyed revisiting them!
And here is a sample of how Mr. Nice Guy appeared back in the old days!
And one potentially good side-effect of this whole effort...it's kind of made me want to revisit Moundsville in more depth...what may come of this? :-)
