SKYMAN and the Deep Freeze!!

I wanted to do some Christmas-y stories, but there don't seem to be a whole lot that don't feature DC Comics characters! So here's a snow-y story featuring Skyman!!

Snow is Christmas-y!!

Skyman had a pretty healthy career: He appeared in BIG SHOT COMICS #1-101 (May 1940-May 1949) along with 4 issues of his own series, spread out from 1941-1948.

You can read more about Skyman at Wikipedia, Toonopedia and International Super Hero.

from
BIG SHOT COMICS #8 (December 1940)
story by Gardner Fox (as Paul Dean); art by Ogden Whitney
cover by Ogden Whitney




PARTING SHOTS:


His mouth is saying, "impetuous little idiot!"
But his eyes are saying, "Mmmm, tasty!"


Just because I couldn't not use this panel...


Again with the "idiot." Misogynistic much?
(Not to mention that he already knew she had parachuted out of the Wing.
He saw her stuck in the tree and left her there!!
A scientific genius with a short-term memory! Kinda scary!)


And we learned--

Skyman is a size queen.

  3. Sweet! Don't suppose you have any with the Vulture Men? I'm using Skyman in my Bounty Hunter series and have been trying to find some Vulture Men stuff, to no avail.

    But anything you have is cool. :)

  4. Well, I only have 4 issues of Big Shot Comics (besides this one) that aren't on GACD. And I flipped thru them tonight and didn't see anything that looked like Vulture Men. Sorry. :(

    And in issue #91, it looks like the middle of a serialized story. Kinda anti-climatic by itself. But when I get the time (hopefully this week) I'll scan 'em up.

    I don't want to beg, but I will. lol
