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.

|A really sweet little story by George Perez and Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez that I read the other day and thought y'all might like.|
Collected, along with many other cool stories, in the pretty Wonder Woman: Destiny Calling.

You can take the boy out of the circus, but...|
Someone who has just done me a brilliant sketchcard (which you'll see soon enough, believe me it's a thing of utter beauty) mentioned he'd like to see a sample of the "Robin goes back to the circus" stories that we've posted here and on S_D 1.0, so this repost from there is for Sonny, a thoroughly nice guy who I hope will see fit to join us here if he's interested.
I know that when he was in the Titans Dick got used to be carried through the air by Starfire, but honestly....
It's a purely fun blast from the past from DC Comics Presents #31, written by Gerry Conway and drawn by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez with inks from Dick Giordano (Always a killer combination for classic DC characters) - Where Superman hoists an elephant, Robin battles a half-and-half hermaphrodite and Jimmy and Lois show why Clark really IS the brains of the Daily Planet's star trio.
A few of the scans aren't the greatest quality because it's an old, old comic now!
Not so much "Not Dial-up friendly" but "Actively dial-up hostile".

Wednesday Comics #1|
Warning: As those of you who've picked up an issue of Wednesday Comics know, these pages are HUGE. Those with slower connections should keep that in mind.

Atari Force (Two) - One Perfect Moment|
My very first post. I thought it would be appropriate to contribute to the community what I consider to be the perfect moment of the first comic that caught and held my interest, DC's Atari Force (Two)
( Really ... would that be so hard? )

One Perfect Moment: JLA|
Despite the fact that these scans are hilarious, I also think they really represent what a good Justice League is all about. I'll go into detail after the pictures. This is from JLA: The Hypothetical Woman, written by Gail Simone (which would explain why it is so awesome) with art by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez.

A little something for the long weekend....|
As it's a long weekend in the UK (well, chunks of it) and the US, I thought I'd repost an "activity post" from S_D 1.0
The results last time were... memorable to say the least, and I'm hoping for more here! :)
From the brighter, happier days of 1984 comes....

Master Post: Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez|
Ever since the recent demise of scans_daily I had been wondering if there was any to save all of the old mega posts that I did at s_d covering a number of artists and stories that I loved. I started another LJ profile, "master_post", for the sole purpose of archiving all those old posts as well as continuing with tons more, starting with Garcia-Lopez (I've cross posted at non-scans just in case)! Please feel free to friend "master_post" and I hope you guys don't mind if I post the rare update once in a while here. In any case, I hope you like the Garcia-Lopez material!

Batman Confidential #28 - SPOILERS|
Damn, this was a fun arc!
Sorry if some of this looks choppy, but it's broken up to 1) stay within the posting limits and 2) preserve some of the mystery, as well as the cool reveal in the last couple of pages of the book.
BTW, those last couple of pages that I'm not showing? They make me really, REALLY want to see this team do more with this Tut guy.
I've really enjoyed the fun story and fantastic art in this arc. This one's worth your money, folks.

A return to what we do best... or I think I do at any rate! :)|
It's been noted, and not by me, that since we moved here, we've been lacking a certain something, a certain "je ne sais quoi", But I've realised je sais exactly what quoi we're missing...
And so, to rectify that, I've gone digging through my archives to come up with a selection of published pages and commission work which fits the bill. More by coincidence than anything they all feature Dick Grayson... what a surprise! :)
So, to paraphrase Stephen Sondheim in his original version of "Back in Business" from Dick Tracy (Not to be confused with Madonna's version, the Sondheim one is far more of a period piece... but I digress)
( Back in bondage and feeling grand, let the good time roll! )

Okay, not by popular demand but it's been one of those Mondays and I want to share some silliness! |
This was intended partly to see if I could restore html code from stored e-mail replies to the original posting, and it looks like I can. So I'm reposting the single most popular (in terms of replies) post I ever got at the old S_D.
From 1981 (and reprinted for the Warner Bros Stores in the 1990's) I bring you (once again)...
ISBN1563891417 for those interested.
I haven't included all the recipes because, well, the images are more than enough fun!
13 images, so NOT dial up friendly.
( Even by S_D standards this is just weird! :) )

Batman Confidential #27 - Spoilers|
Title: Batman Confidential #27 (monthly)
Length: 23 pages
Posted 'Cuz: Too Awesome To Not Pimp*
A couple of days back, mysteryfan linked to DC's five-page preview of Batman Confidential here. Go on, check it out if you haven't already. No hurry.
So I picked up my copy of the book this afternoon and settled down, skimming the first five pages because, you know, I'd read them already.
( Let me say, page six justifies the book's cover price. Spoiler beneath. )
Please give DC your $2.99. I want this creative team to be brought back to make more awesome.
*I'm not sure if this is in violation of the "four pages, max" rule for recent comics, since the above is an off-site link to an official preview, not an actual post to the comm. I'll take this down if so.

Some more Model sheets - This time for the Amazing Amazon|
Continuing my series of DC licensing images by the legend which is Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez
These are all pre-Crisis reboot, but post the change from eagle-crest to double-W chest logo. So she still has the ridiculous heels, but that's life.
( Enjoy! )
