New in the Studio

posted on May 26, 2017

There’s no Flash Fridays today because I was on the road in Dallas delivering the Batom Comics covers to Heritage Auctions. The covers are to be auctioned off on November 17 for the benefit of the Lisa’s Legacy Fund of Cancer Research and Education. If you want to take a look at some of them, check out the Gallery section on this site. In the meantime, here’s sneak peek at something new in the studio.

The Radar

posted on April 22, 2017

This is something I came across, as often happens, while looking for something else in the studio. It’s something that I worked on, judging from the dates, over the Christmas break in 1963. It features a character called the Radar who is sightless and navigates using a radar sense. Your guess is as good as mine as to what the sword was all about. What’s interesting is that in May of 1964, Marvel’s Daredevil made his first appearance… a blind superhero with a radar sense. What’s kind of cool to contemplate (for me anyway) is that, given the lead time on comic books, Stan and I probably came up with our visually challenged superheroes at about the same time. Of course, Stan’s hero went on to bigger and better things while mine went into a portfolio case never to be seen again (or until now anyway). Probably should have ditched the sword.

This has become one of the most indispensable items in the studio here at the Cartoon Castle. My tricked-out trusty MacBook Pro is one sturdy workhorse of a machine.
