ALL-STAR-TOBER: Dig These 13 Groovy JUSTICE SOCIETY Sketches

Trick or treat… on Earth-Two!

For six straight years we’ve brought you highlights from superstar artist Chris Samnee’s #Batober, in which he uses a different word every day to inspire some seriously fab Batman art thoughout the month.

He’s not alone. Since the original #Inktober concept kind of fell by the wayside a few years ago, other artists — pros and DIYers — have developed their own theme months. One of my faves is #All-Star-tober, the brainchild of Mike W. Belcher.

I did it last year as just wanting to do something like Inktober,” Mike said. “I have a lot of respect for those pen-and-ink guys so didn’t want to tread on their territory. I’m a huge DC Golden Age fan, so I picked that time period of All-Star Comics and the book that introduced me to those characters in the 1980s, All-Star Squadron, as a theme… I did it again this year but this time I invited others to join. And it’s been great sharing the love of the characters and seeing other great artists’ take.”

Here’s Mike’s list of characters, by October day:

There are days to go, but check out these 13 SKETCHES I’ve corralled from around the web, most notably Facebook, where Mike has even created an All-Star-tober 2022 group.

Dig it.

  1. How about Power Girl? She’s a member of the Justice Society as well and don’t forget the original Wonder Woman!

    • Hey Larry. Wonder Woman is there now in the All-Star-tober link Dan had shared. Unfortunately Power Girl did not make the cut this year. Maybe next year.
