Mighty Mouse and Wally Wood

Here is a screenshot from an episode of the 1987 TV cartoon series, THE NEW ADVENTURES OF MIGHTY MOUSE. This was the hipper than hip series made by veteran Ralph Bakshi with a young John Kricfalusi, later known for REN & STIMPY. Note that the cover is "signed" Timm. Was this drawn by Bruce Timm, later known for his great design work on so many of the DC TV animated projects. And who is the green guy, presumably a parody at a real person?

Adkins Does Steranko


In the early seventies, Marvel Comics adapted the classic Wells story of THE INVISIBLE MAN and the great Jim Steranko, during his covers-only phase at the company, did this eye-catching line art on the left.

A few years later Marvel reprinted the story in their black and white line but needed a painted cover rather than pen and ink so they called on former Woodworker Dan Adkins to translate Jaunty Jim's original work into a cover painting. The result is seen at right.
