Card Art #44: Grounded [Arkham Asylum]

March 24, 2014

This series recounting how I added art to DC cards to make ‘em prettier continues with this BFC from Arkham Asylum: This image from the early ’80s Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew series is the best possible choice to illustrate this card. Next week, more Arkham.

Card Art #43: Scatter [Arkham Asylum]

March 17, 2014

This series recounting how I added art to DC cards to make ‘em prettier continues. Last time, I said I’d move on to Secret Invasion, which was the next set with feat and BFC cards. But I forgot that I was only doing DC sets because the Marvel ones already HAVE art. So, on to […]

Card Art #42: Ordinary Day [Crisis]

March 10, 2014

This series recounting how I added art to DC cards to make ‘em prettier continues. Here, we conclude Crisis with an innocuous-looking card: This BFC was printed about a half-dozen times. The image from JSA vs. Kobra #5, in which the villain moves among unsuspecting civilians, was perfect. As noted, Crisis is done. Coming up […]

Wow, it’s been a long time since this series recounting how I added art to DC cards to make ‘em prettier saw an addition.

Continuing the series recounting how I added art to DC cards to make ’em prettier. The next feat of Crisis WOULD be Opportunist, but it’s another WOT (Wall of Text) card that leaves little or no room for art. So it’s on to the next in line: Man. At the time, there were very few […]

Card Art #39: Isolation

Continuing the series recounting how I choose art for DC cards to make ’em prettier. Here’s the next BFC in the set: Though he’s my favorite character, Aquaman on a wrecked throne well-illustrates the card. This was from a cover 2/3 through his 2002 series run, just after Atlantis had gotten smooshed by the insane […]

Card Art #38: Cannonball

September 9, 2013

Continuing the series recounting how I added art to DC cards to make ’em prettier. I’m going to switch things up a little by alternating between BFCs and Feats in each set. To wit, this time Heroclixin’ looks at the first Feat of Crisis: Well, technically it’s the 2nd feat, but F001 is an Alternate […]
