Okay, I said I would be working on the Bumble Bee painting today, but I got sidetracked. I had another exciting bout of insomnia last night. I stayed up until 3:30 am but I was not unproductive. One of the things I stared working on was this piece. When I got up this morning I jumped back on it.I remember picking up Adventure Comics when the Spectre began his run headlining the comic. Jim Aparo was one of my favorite artists from that time and he was drawing the Spectre stories. These were the ones where the Spectre did horrible things to horrible people. Pretty tough stuff considering the Comic Code Authority of the time. There have been a few changes as to who the Spectre is but for me the Spectre will always be dead cop Jim Corrigan. You have to wonder though, what they were thinking when decided his costume should be underwear, booties, gloves and a hood, cape, high collar combination. Yikes!
This piece was done for fun and for those that might be interested, it will be auctioned on eBay starting tonight. My seller ID is: gene_gonzales.
