A smorgasbord of Superdictionary silliness.
Yeah, have a handful of Superdictionary entries! Always appreciated, I know. I went back through the IJcomm, and I'm pretty sure none of these have been seen on it up to this point, so yes.

Under the cut are fourteen entries. That is as many as one ten plus four. )

An SD1.0 repost and a genuine "Grail Piece" acqusition!! :)
Chances are that if you owned ANY DC licensed merchandise in the late 70's or early 80's it either featured art by, or based on, work done by Jose-Luis Garcia-Lopez and Dick Giordano, two stalwarts of the organisation, who produced acres of top notch, lovely licensing art.

The art would be used from notepads to action figures, from t-shirts to underoos, and so had to be both simple and stylish, easily reproduced and instantly recognisable. They could hardly have asked for better!

The attached pics are scanned as best I can, and hopefully might bring a little happiness to your desktop should you wish to tweak them that way.

Oh Look, Everyone Was Wrong
One page from Superman/Batman #61, and the resolution of a previous quandry.

And stuff! )

To Catch A Thief
So yesterday I finally sucked it up and bought Birds Of Prey: Sensei & Student despite it's gratuitous, egregious, and generally calamitous cover. Even for Greg Land, this is a bad cover. Those who haven't seen on the trade or the first time it was printed with #67, I'm not posting it, I'm not linking it, I'm not subjecting you to it. If you want to see it, it'll have to be on your own time by your own decision. I'm just here to talk about it. I'd originally decided to tear it off and burn it, but I don't keep matches anymore since I quit smoking a few weeks ago.

Oh man oh man oh man!
I just got the best book. I just got the best collection of many pages that are held together between two covers. I own many books but this is the one I'm posting about today. Come enjoy it with me.

Batman: The Brave and the Bold - Legends of the Dark-Mite preview images!
www.worldsfinestonline.com has images and videoclips from "Legend of the Dark Mite" up. This is due to be broadcast May 29th, and has Pee-Wee Herman as the voice of Bat-Mite...

See all the images here. The images there are HUGE, wallpaper sized without any problem at all, and do include some very nice "oil-painting" style splashes of notable Batvillains...

Oh this is going to be FUN!

Another golden oldie... some Andy Price Batverse sketch cards!
Andy Price is an artist whose style I've loved since I first saw this image;

NSFW (but not PURE porn) )

Andy has a genuine, if delightfully irreverent, love of the DC characters, in all their assorted styles and era's and can seemingly reproduce all of them.

Luckily he does a lot of work with sketchcards, for the DC Legacy series, and the new Batman Archives set from Rittenhouse and so there have been many nice examples of his work to be had, e-bay being a big help there!

So just bear in mind as you go through these, ALL of them are by the same artist....

Bat-centric fun below )
There are a LOT of images under here. Even if most of them are relatively small, dial up be warned.

As they have been released by DC for sale, I think it satisfies the need for a published piece of art, but I'll add one in if any mod thinks it's required.

A question, and some Tom Lyle Batman images.
Probably going to have the obvious answer of "No", but I thought I'd ask;Batman, Robin and the Joker commissions )

Batman Family "Dollar comic" back covers
IJ account created, check. Joined S_D 2.0, check. Userpic, can't find the damn thing, heck with it I'll get one later. Here we go...

The relentless stagflation of the 70's was not kind to comics. 50 cents for a 100 page super-spectacular became 60 cents, then became 60 cents for a 64 page giant, and finally 60 cents for a 48 page "giant." (back then, comic companies were actually reluctant to raise cover prices, you see). Then came the "Dollar Comic," at 80 pages for a dollar, with all-new content. But 80 pages was just too much paper to be affordable, so after only a few months of 80 page dollar comics, the page count was cut back to 64 pages.

But again, this was an era when comic publishers felt a responsibility to deliver value for your dollar, so DC eliminated all advertising from the 64 page dollar comics. 64 pages with no ads was nearly the same number of story pages as 80 pages with ads, so they could tell readers that nothing had changed except a lower printing bill for DC. And it gave the artists the opportunity to create pinups for the back cover.Read more... )
