ComicAL Action Heroes! 1976 Albert Bigley Artwork! Batman? DC Comics?!

Ah, yes, here we have more 1976 illustrations, in which I drew inspiration from another set of toys from the venerable Mego corporation! This time it's the gawd-awful, super-awkward "Comic Action Heroes!" CAH was a sad line of barely-painted, stiffly posed (what are their hands doing there, anyway?) "action" figures! Mego produced these alongside with their original 8-inch line of figures, as a way to hedge the ever-spiralling plastic and petroleum costs in the the mid-70s, but the line didn't exactly set the waiting world ablaze! But, it does seem I (age 11) was somewhat excited enough by them to draw a line-up of these three DC stalwarts! Click to enlarge, figure fans!

I probably used images from the COMIC ACTION HEROES catalog (came with the figures) for this scene!

I've still got the entire set of Marvel and DC figures and the exploding bridge with Batmobile.
