Flash in the Pan
Another day, another drawing of a superhero. This time it's that zippy little rascal, The Flash. His power, for those of you outta the loop, is that he is fast. Really fast. This guy is never late for anything, I bet.
I've been doodling a lot of superheroes lately. I don't know why. I've never been asked to draw them professionally, for reasons the illustration here makes obvious. I don't even read superhero comics all that often.
Recently, though, I did read a comic book featuring costumed heroes. A big one. A very nice friend gave me a copy of "DC Comics' Wednesday Comics". It's an oversize collection of superhero tales done by various writer/artist teams in the style of the ol' Sunday newspaper adventure strip format. It's a fun concept, and the artwork is, for the most part, fantastic. The stories, though, are a bit hum-drum. Just a lot of the same old heroes facing the same old challenges. Kind of a yawn, for the most part.
As I said, though, the art is (mostly) great, and I suggest you check the book out, if you have a chance.
Or maybe I can just keep posting my crappy superhero drawings here for all of you to "enjoy". That's a lot cheaper than buying the book!
