cal came home from the movies the other night and announced that Iron man is cool. I said 'You know I drew Iron Man once' 'You never did' 'yes, he was a guest star in an issue of Captan America.' 'YOU drew Captain America?"
The thing about kids is that they weren't listening to anything you told them between the ages of ten and sixteen, so you get to tell them all over again. I fished out the issue in question and he read it. Here are a few panels. The heroes get to hang out and call each other by their first names. I always liked that kind of thing when I was a wee'un. You could imagine you were hanging out with them yourself. Tony, Steve and wee Eddie.
The colouring was very dark, and I've had to lighten it so we can see what's going on. StewART McKenny helped me out with the backgrounds and mechanical objects in these panels. The thing I like most is that it almost doesn't look like my work.
update: I forgot to mention that the book was writen by Bob Morales who is always sending me links for my blog.
