Shazam and Billy Batson Comic Collage by flukiechic Shazam and Billy Batson Comic Collage by flukiechic
18x24x1.5" Comic collage on canvas
All comics used are from the 1970's "With One Magic Word...SHAZAM!" series, which contained new stories along with reprints of the classic 1940's series. It's The Big Red Cheese in his prime: monkeys with turbans, evil inchworms, Captain Nazi and more! Original foreground image concept is a recreation of a classic Neal Adams piece.
If you'd like to see how my originals are assembled, just copy and paste www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIo3fN… into your browser to see a time lapse video of Shazam from canvas to completion!
Everything you see is comic book. No marker, paint, or alternate paper. Just comics and glue. Each original piece takes approx. 100-150 hours to complete.

Cool art but 100 - 150 hours? To much Time?

Yeah, the Shazam piece didn't take quite as long, but the Spider-Man, the Batman, and a few others take about that long, it just depends on the size. Everything is hand cut pieces of old comics glued onto deep canvases, so half of the time is spent going through comics and getting the pieces I need cut, the time-lapse YouTube video of my Shazam piece shows a little better how many pieces go into making a finished original.

This is great, I love Captain Marvel and this a perfect expression of who he is. Do you sell any of these?
