Well, you’re about to find out…
UPDATED 10/4/21: Halloween’s right around the corner! Perfect time to re-present this groovy piece from 2019. And, hey — a SEQUEL is here, too! Click here to check it out. Dig it. — Dan
As you almost certainly know by now, I love all things Ben Cooper.
So naturally, I was agog when I again came across cartoonist Karl Heitmueller Jr.’s illustrations of superheroes wearing the wonderfully cheesy mass-market get-ups instead of their, shall we say, more on-model outfits.
Karl did them a number of years ago but he’s tweaked some of them and has been posting them online again this year — evidently inspired by this piece from the other day — so I asked him if it was cool if I posted them here.
Not only did he agree, it turns out he had 13 of them. 13! What are the chances?
So dig these groovy illos — and for more fun stuff by Karl, whom you probably know from his cartoon Prince Street News that appears in Back Issue magazine, check out his website Tough Guy Goods & Services by clicking here.
