Just in time for Halloween, Travis joins me to discuss our favorite magical comic book characters. Who will make the cut? Dr. Fate or Dr. Strange? Etrigan or Hellboy? Listen to find out! But first we briefly talk about the passing of Steve Dillon and then chat about the fantastic artist who’s coming to the 2017 Emerald City Comicon: José Luis García-López!
Who are your favorite magical characters? Let us know!
Everyone (more or less) by George Pérez. How awesome is this? I like how he grouped some characters together, like the archers in the middle, the speedsters on the left and right sides, and DC’s Trinity near the middle (with Batman’s cape being loud and proud!). Plus, it wasn’t until I was writing this text that I noticed that Marvel’s Sandman is the ground!
Here’s a cover image from a comic in my collection, chosen at random.
I actually bought this at my local Hasting’s store for $.99. I’m a sucker for anniversary or big number issues. It’s a great, classic JLAers vs each other cover with art by the awesome George Pérez. Notice the background single color strips–George often used this motif, at least as I recall in the New Teen Titans series.
