LIID 150: Captain Marvels! by johntrumbull LIID 150: Captain Marvels! by johntrumbull
The Line It Is Drawn #150 for 8/2/13: Comic Book Cover Homages! I chose the suggestion "Action Comics #252 (The first appearance of Supergirl) with the original Captain Marvel and the Carol Danvers Captain Marvel." I was all set to draw a simple two character homage, when it struck me that Marvel had had a LOT of different Captain Marvels over the years, and we were off to the races!

Homage to the cover of Action Comics #252 by Curt Swan and Al Plastino. Original is visible here: www.editions-deesse.com/images…

You can check out all the other great cover homages here: goodcomics.comicbookresources.…

Considering Fawcett had no way to use the character and therefore no way to keep the trademark, all this hating on Marvel is misplaced. Also, it was M. F. Enterprises who first used the name after Fawcett on their Splitxam Captain Marvel.

Yes, I know that.  It doesn't make what Marvel did right.

His name is Captain Marvel.  It was Captain Marvel for over 70 years.  It makes me cringe every time I hear him referred to as "Shazam."

I think you're the main reason I follow The Line It Is Drawn as closely as I do, John.  You never cease to amaze me with your entries.
