Marvel Premiere #31 page 16 (by Giffen & Janson) -- 1st appearance and origin of WOODGOD! From the minds of Bill Mantlo and Keith Giffen (with a cover by King Kirby), the Man-Brute called WOODGOD premiered in the pages of Marvel Premiere #31 in 1976. Woodgod, Marvel's best all-nude superhero! It's only a matter of time before Disney/Marvel makes a big-budget Woodgod movie. Who would play Woodgod? Ben Stiller, Matthew McConaughey, Tyler Hoechlin, Shia LeBuff??? Maybe Woodgod will team-up with Marvel's second best all-nude superhero, Man-Thing? Coming soon to a theater near you, hopefully in 4D Imax....Disney/Marvel Presents: GIANT-SIZE MAN-THING & WOODGOD! I can see Stan Lee and his signature cologne making a great cameo in this film! By the way, I got a whiff of that cologne and you know what it smells like? Jack Kirby's tears.

 

SCREAM!

Given the "success" DC just had with the Batawang, you might  be onto something. #MarvelAfterDark

The artist nightmare ... because it doesn't matter where the light source for the image is coming from, a strategically placed shadow is always required

We never got to the part of the origin where the superpower of light-dampening thighs was explained, but I'm betting that would have been a 3-issue arc.

Not even Batman could master the superpower of light-dampening thighs

Doubtful. In the era of compressed storytelling the entire matter could have been settled in one Steve Englehart text box party.

Hodag.jpg.9b87ab93a25587e3b88ee8e9e9fd06af.jpg

#10 of Badger - First appearance of "Hodag", and as the Badger hails from Wisconsin it seems fitting that his nemesis draws on the local folklore https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hodag . I have always wondered how relevant that reference is in wider America? I do have more obscure bit part players in CAF and some I haven't popped on there but thought I would go with one that at least had several appearances under his belt.

I also like that this thread is cropping up a few unusual sketches. If I had to pick an unusual one from what we have then it's the one that my daughter got from Carlos Ezquerra of Fionna the Human (which is from Adventure Time universe, more specifically it's from the gender bent fan fiction universe that exists within the Adventure time universe). Everyone was glad that she had brought some reference for Carlos to look at :bigsmile: . I just really really like it.

Not really sure if it counts as obscure but definitely the most non-comic related in my original art and commission collection.  Lacey Underall from Caddyshack by Josh Howard.
