Card Art #6 & #7

Posted on May 28, 2012


Would ya believe this weekly (haw!) feature hasn’t been updated since OCTOBER? It’s been so long, I don’t even remember what I last presented. (Here’s a link back to the original concept.)

After doing some webcrawling, it looks like I’d started on the Icons feats. So let’s pick up with a pair of them to sorta kinda make up for lost time.

Still doing sloppy work at this stage. The artwork is Scott McDaniel from the then-current Green Arrow title. At the time, I don’t believe there was an actual Green Arrow figure that could use the feat — and boy, is it ever overcosted for its limited usefulness — but this was the perfect art for it.

Scott McDaniel is a fantastic cartoonist, so this wasn’t the last time I’d refer to his work for this little fanwork:

A card named “Sidekick” just begs for a Robin, and fortunately I had in my collection an issue of Nightwing that featured the perfect image of the Boy Wonder side-by-side with his mentor. (It was a flashback of Dick Grayson’s career or somesuch.) It very much, to me, illustrates the card concept of a much cheaper character being able to wade into battle just as fearlessly as its higher-cost partner — you don’t get the impression from this art that Robin would back down from any foe that Batman was facing alongside him.


OK. Maybe I’ve gotten this little feature a bit back on track.
