The squandering of the daughters' inheritancecontinues.
 
At the age of 10, I bought the first appearance of The Inferior Five in Showcase. I was really puzzled. I didn't know the word inferior, I didn't know about parody and satire. Who were these people and why weren't they as capable of as the Justice League!?!?
Eventually, I figured it out and really grew to enjoy the book.
 
A friend (thank, Miki!) alerted me that several pages were for sale at Anthony's Comic Book Art.
 
As it happened, they were priced in my impulse zone and, ironically, were from the same issue as the page I left at Logan Airport a few years ago. 🙁
 
Anyway, welcome to the Inferior Five, the home of Merryman, Awkwardman, The Blimp, White Arrow, and Dumb Bunny.

Yep, it’s Silver Surfer 15 from Allred/Slott’s first run. The rest are commissions. 

Very nice. It looked like allred but came in that inkyknuckles box. How did that come about? (He's not repped by them, right?)

Haha good deducing! No he is not, but it’s the wild wild Calgary comic scene. Anything can happen!

Happy Memorial Day weekend folks!  

Something truly special to post... a magnificent splash from legendary French artist, Philippe Druillet!  Druillet revolutionized the comics narrative with "The Six Voyages of Lone Sloane" in 1972 and this is the opening splash from the first voyage "The Throne of the Black God" introducing the space-traveling Lone Sloane and-- you guessed it-- the mysterious Throne of the Black God!  A true pioneer of graphic storytelling, Druillet was one of the founders of Heavy Metal (“Métal Hurlant”) and revered as one of Europe's "Big 3" along with Moebius and Hergé.   Drawn with colossal scale (28" x 36" inches!), among the largest pen-and-ink OA ever created.  

Just a tad bigger than my scanner, so my daughter was happy to pose with it:

Central vacs were still popular in the 90s before wall-to-wall carpets gave way to hardwood floors.

It’s Halloween week Boys and Ghouls!  Great time to post my Tomb of Dracula #42 cover (1976) by Colan and Palmer.   Only a handful of TOD covers with Blade— and none more dramatic— so this definitely ‘spiked’ my excitement!

That's an awesome cover!
