POW! TV Batman and Batgirl at Discovery Place! 2015 Colossal Cosplay Contest! DC Comics!

That's right! It was cosplay-mania at this recent "Drink-and-Draw" event, staged at the wonderful kid's museum, Discovery Place, in Charlotte, North Carolina! The venue also hosted a comics-themed "open house," inviting all to attend, and encouraging fervent fans to model superhero costumes and attire! Click below to see all the photos, fun and fan-tastic frolic!

as the "TV Batgirl" (as originally portrayed on the famed 60s BATMAN series by actress
Yvonne Craig) for the drink-and-draw group! What an exacting costume!



Above: Now it's my turn to step up for the animated
artists, once again in my "TV Batman" gear!


Above: What's this? It seem we have our own personal rogue's
gallery, "cheering" us on in our art-minded efforts! You can spot

the Riddler (Amberle Linnea) and Catwoman (Tracey Buzzio)!


Above: You try holding a still pose for ten minutes or more! It's tough!
I'm used to being on the other side of this equation! But--Batgirl's arm
begins to weaken after a long pose, so...


Above: ...Batman comes to her aid! The day (and many drawings) is saved!


Above: Now, a duo pose! At least I can lean on somebody for this one!



Above: Hey! Even a superhero can get tired! 



Above: Oh no! The wily Joker (in the person of Vic Goldberg) has made the scene! This we need?


Above: As you can see, Batman went into instant
action against the newly-arrived Joker!








Above four images: Let's take a look at some of the best Bat-drawings from this
awesome event! They're all fabulous! That last one, tho…No comment.

Shattering Sunday SPIDER-MAN 70s Strips! The Football Fumble! Marvel Madness!

Last time, we saw a swingin' Spidey take action to avoid an attacking Prowler, at the scene of an in-progress football game! But, the Web-Slinger has made an egregious error in his aim, and now has made enemies (like he needed more?) of the gridiron players! Will he be able to catch (and talk some sense into) this new super-villain? Will he come out unscathed from the oncoming battle? And--How much yardage will the home team lose, thanks to Spidey's unwelcome intervention? More rare 1979 strips from Stan Lee and John Romita, Sr.! Click below to enlarge!
