Robin Meets Man-Bat and--Albert Bigley?! 1976 BATMAN Art! DC Comics?!

Below is a faux cover I drew (at age 11) for the then-new BATMAN book-and-record production of "Robin Meets Man-Bat!" The actual cover is seen below right, and was created by the great Neal Adams! To see even more about my youthful obsession with this little superhero tale, click here! Click images below to enlarge!

1974 Albert Bigley CAPTAIN AMERICA Art?! Power Records Live Again!

Inspired by the then-recent release of the Power Records version of CAPTAIN AMERICA #168, here is MY 1974 version of the same power-packed cover! Even at age 9, I always dug the character design for not only Cap, but his hip partner, the Falcon, too, as well as the evil Phoenix (even contemplating a Phoenix Halloween costume for that year-but went out in a home-made Cap outfit instead)! The original cover (right) sports great art by the vastly underrated Sal Buscema! Click images to enlarge!

SPIDEY SUPER STORIES Cover Art by Albert Bigley?! Electric Company! Marvel Comics!

Right! Another fabulous blast from my past! Here is my 1974 (age 9) drawing of the cover from Marvel's SPIDEY SUPER STORIES #6 (on right-as drawn by the incomparable John Romita)! Notice that I completely omitted Iceman from the layout, as he was one of the then-unpopular X-Men! Yeech! Click the images below to enlarge!

Happy 50th Anniversary to THE FLINTSTONES! Happy 37th Anniversary to This Drawing!

Yep! Another mid-70s FLINTSTONES drawing, created by my own 9-year old self! Even tho I was strictly a "superhero guy," I did make stabs at drawing the more cartoony character crowd, and Freddy here seemed to be an easy target for me! Click to enlarge!
