"Mighty Mightor and Frankenstein Jr."

Mighty Mightor

Hannah Barbera's teenage caveman superhero originally appeared in the Science Fiction animated series Moby Dick and Mighty Mightor from 1967 to 1969. The show divided it's time between Moby Dick's sea based escapades and Mighty Mightor's adventures.

Mighty Mightor was originally a teenage caveman called Tor who rescued an old man who in turn rewarded him with a magical club. When Tor raises the club towards the sky, He magically transorms into the super powered prehistoric superhero Mightor.

Frankenstein Jr.

Frankenstein Jr starred in the 1966 Hannah Barbera Saturday Morning cartoon Frankenstein Jr. and The Impossibles. The first part of the episodes featured boy scientist Buzz and his 30ft robot Frankenstein Jr. as they battled alien invaders and supervillains. The second part of the episodes showed the adventures of superhero trio Multi Man, Fluid Man, and Coil Man.

This how the characters originally appeared-

Bananaman Poster

A tribute poster for D.C. Thomson and Co's Bananaman character and his upcoming movie.

Bananaman has long been my one of my favourite comic book characters so I thought I would have a bash at drawing him. The poster features Bananman, his alter ego Eric, his trusty sidekick Crow and two of his enemies- Dr. Gloom and Appleman.

I might do a little drawing of his arch-enemy General Blight.

Here is the original sketch

"One Ugly Motherf***er"

The line "You're one ugly motherf***er!" is said by Schwarzenegger's character Dutch after seeing the Predator's true face.

Wario Sketch

Here's a little simple coloured sketch of Wario from the popular Mario video game series. Not entirely sure if I'll do anything with it or work more on it. My Wario sketch was inspired by my love of evil doppelgangers of established heroic characters.
