LIID 155 BONUS: Space Ghost and the Super Friends! by johntrumbull LIID 155 BONUS: Space Ghost and the Super Friends! by johntrumbull
BONUS for LIID Week 155: the COLOR version of Space Ghost with the Super Friends! I'm glad I finally found the time to finish this up this week. I'll be selling prints of this next weekend (Oct. 10-13, 2013) at the New York Comic Con at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC! Come by table 1262 and pick one up.

Studying the colors that the amazing Ken Steacy did in Comico's 1986 SPACE GHOST special by Mark Evanier & Steve Rude was a BIG help on this one. Thanks to the very talented Mr. Steacy! Here's a link to his website: www.kensteacy.blogspot.com/

And again, you can see all the other entries for TLIID Week 155 here: goodcomics.comicbookresources.…

Haha!  Great picture, great gag.  Didn't see this one coming. (pun!)

I love how you juxtaposed all the poses and made them boy-and-girl for them on each side (except for Blip and Gleek, for obvious reasons).

And an answer for all those asking "if they can fly, what do they need aerospace craft for?"  Simple.  Passengers and cargo.  You try carrying twelve bags of groceries all the way back to Themyscria or Ghost Planet.

Thank you! Yeah, once I started thinking about the characters, all sorts of connections started to suggest themselves.

If Wonder Woman had her Invisible Jet, then how is it that she was able to fly, on her own too...?


I can see Space Ghost can't fly (I only know little of this DC hero of the cosmos...)

Actually, Space Ghost CAN fly on his own, but I'd imagine the ship is faster/safer for long-distance travel.

Wonder Woman could only fly on her own after 1986 or so, as far as I know.

Eh, I doubt they meant that people could LITERALLY see WW through her invisible jet.  The Super Friends creators just chose a different way to depict it than the Space Ghost people did.

Gleek don't shiv.

While searching for model sheet/color reference for Gleek, I totally forgot that "Gleek" is also now a term for fans of GLEE.  Imagine my surprise.  :)

I think a better question is: How are Jace, Jayna & Zan able to see the ships?  ;)

I don't think Jan is seeing much of anything right now :)  The rest are just looking at the smoke.

Yep, that's why I didn't include Jan in my question.  :)

And as for the rest, I accept your rationalization.  My equivalent of the No-Prize is on its way to you now!
