I discovered just before the start of this month that there’s something of a social media thing going on at the moment with Big Bang Comics characters. #BigBangTober apparently. As an early contributor to Big Bang (early and often, in a variety of ways), I felt like maybe I should contribute to the cause. So over on LinkedIn, I’ve been posting a number of my old Big Bang pieces.
The attached is one I always wanted to color, but never had the chance to, until now. It’s a faux Golden Age cover, done as one of many for one of the “Big Bang History of Comics” issues. Modeled after The Steranko History of Comics books, Gary Carlson needed a lot of covers to fill out the pages. This was one I came up with. Pencils, lettering (and of course, coloring) are mine. Inks were by Jeff Meyer, who did a great job of helping further the H.G. Peter art look I was going for here. (I came up with the name “P.G.Harris” as kind of Big Bang’s H.G. Peter equivalent).
Thanks for looking!
