Don’t call me “Chief”!
All of this is a distraction. It’s Kirby Day, but my mind is looking forward to Halloween (I get started early, okay?). What I really wanted to post was Count Dragorin.
Count Dragorin is from a Kirby-style horror story that predates The Demon by a year or so, from his work on Superman’s Pal, Jimmy Olsen. The Count there is the leader of a planet called Transilvane, which is about the size of a Volkswagen bug and has devil horns.
Believe it or not, NASA commissioned the creation of this tiny bedevilhorned planet so that it could study how life reacts to extraterrestrial environments. On a whim, the chief of the project filled the planet with tiny genetically modified people and for some reason Universal monster movies are continuously projected onto the clouds? Anyway, the planet is full of monster people is the point.
Transilvane is one of my hands-down favorite Kirby stories, even if all the Jimmy and Superman faces were re-drawn by Al Plastino.
This is one of my favorite things ever.
Jimmy Olsen #144
Saw the original of this cover today in person! Cosmic!
I like that this cover presupposes the idea that a wild bull could destroy Superman.
Like it’s a secret weakness of Superman’s that no one ever talks about.
Didn’t realize this before, but now that I’m getting this beaut from @thechrishaley it will be the first grad school related thing to adorn my walls.
You may have seen my previous post here about how my 6 year old computer is about to die, and I need a new one to keep making art and comics for you kind people.
To raise the money, I am trying to sell off as much of my original art as I possibly can, so this is me doing that!
Here are the prices!
LBFA Strip “Yes. More.” - $70 (Artist’s note: This is not a great photo, but you can click the link to see the comic in all it’s glory. This is one of my all time favorite strips, so I hope this goes to a good home.)
Superman cooks a hot dog - $25 Jimmy Olsen - $25 Doop - $20 Mary Marvel - $35 Kermit the Frog - $10
Conan the Barbarian - $15
TL;DR - I’m desperate for $$$ for a new computer before my old one dies, so email me at THECHRISHALEY AT GMAIL if you want to buy any of this original art!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE REBLOG!
Thank you! I love you!
Jimmy Olsen is a young photojournalist working for the Daily Planet.
Jimmy is often seen sharing adventures with Superman, who saved him from various predicaments ranging from dangerous to merely embarrassing.
Once Jimmy was turned into a human porcupine.
