Big Bang Comics #35: Mighty Man Pin-up

In celebration of grabbing almost the complete 35-issue run of the Image Comics’ Big Bang series in the dollar bins at the Baltimore Comic-con, I’m posting this great pin-up of Mighty Man by Andrew Sheppard from the back cover of Big Bang Comics #35:

Gary Carlson (writer/publisher of Megaton Comics, writer/co-creator of Vanguard and writer of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles vol. 3) co-created Big Bang Comics as a homage to Golden and Silver Age comic books. Savage Dragon and Mighty Man have made multiple appearances in this fun throw-back series. Find out more about Big Bang Comics by visiting their website at http://bigbangcomics.com/

 

Megaton Comics has a Website!

I’m not sure if it’s new, but Megaton Comics has a website that showcases the characters that have graced the pages of the comic   throughout its seven-year existence. It’s a relatively small site, but cool none-the-less! Check it out at www.megatoncomics.com.

A description of Megaton Comics from the website: 

Megaton was an independent comic book published from 1981 to 1987, and is remembered mainly because of the artists who began their comic book careers in its pages. Erik Larsen, Rob Liefeld, Angel Medina, Gordon Purcell, Butch Guice, Frank Fosco, Clarke Hawbaker, and Daniel Reed all saw their first or second published work in Megaton. Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon and Rob Liefeld’s Youngblood both debuted there, prompting Liefeld to later bestow the title “Grandfather of Image Comics” upon Megaton writer/publisher Gary Carlson.

Now We Have A Fighting Chance…

Chicago. Oridinary cops were losing the battle. The criminal mastermind called Overlord and his Superfreaks held our city in their terrifying grip. Then a miracle happened. When I found him he had no memory of his past. I helped him find an identity and a life. Now we have a fighting chance… Now we have the Dragon!

Behold, the awesome intro to the 1995 Savage Dragon cartoon:
