Patrick Owsley Cartoon Art!

Sunday, January 09, 2011

I've been enjoying going through my collection of "treasury-size" edition comic books! Love this SHAZAM! issue from 1974! I always thought the SHAZAM! logo was so well-designed...and I love C.C. BECK's cover art of CAPTAIN MARVEL and BILLY BATSON!

Sorry, Patrick...

I'm a big SHAZAM fan myself, and I believe that cover was done by Bob Oskner...

You're right, Lud...this art is by OKSNER! I was confusing this cover art with the cover of another SHAZAM! "treasury-size" book, where BILLY is standing directly in front of CAPTAIN MARVEL. That cover art was by C.C. BECK. BTW...I'm sure you already have it, but have you seen the new CAPTAIN MARVEL book by Chip Kidd and Geoff Spear? It's sensational! I highly recommend it!

Also, Lud...it's OKSNER, not OSKNER. Thanks!

No, Patrick, I haven't picked up the new book yet, but I love Kidd's designs, and the cut-out cover looks cool!

BTW, I always misspell Oksner's name!
