PENCILS: SKOTTIE YOUNG

The search for Glinda, Good Witch of the South, is full of danger—a giant spider-monster that eats whole animals like a spider does flies. It’s full of strangeness—a whole village of living china statues. And it’s full of both danger and strangeness—little armless folks who shoot their heads as missiles. But Glinda remains Dorothy’s final hope to reach home, so Dorothy and her friends must brave the journey.

    Thanks for the shoutout guys. The Flash is my favorite comic-based television show of all time. The theme music was great, the costume kicked butt and the effects were really good for the 90s weekly episodic television. Mark Hamill as the Trickster was a riot.

    Rumor has it that this is the special crossover issue with Poster-child! The Sharpie signature avenger! This one to bag and board folks.

    Had fun talking to you guys!

      The intardwebz have lots of pictures of them. Do a search for Hellboy animated maquette

    I’m with Shawn, The Flash TV was pretty awesome, I remember watching it when it first aired and didn’t recognize Hamill as the Trickster, his casting was way out of left field and it was great to see him play against type – although upon reflection we can see the seeds for his animated Joker portrayal. The thing I like about The Flash was that it didn’t steer away from the comic book villains

    I can’t believe I forgot about The Incredible Hulk tv show!

    Oh and I have to stand up and admit to liking Birds of Prey, like most first season it showed promise. The production design was cool and some of the characterizations (namely Harley and Barbara) I felt were spot on. I think the last episode showed promise as to what the series could have been if it had been given legs.
