Laurel Kent - Conventionless Convention Sketch

Laurel Kent © DC Comics

Another Legion Academy cadet for Michael. Laurel Kent's background has been through more changes than a minor character should have to go through. For me, the original tale that explains that she is a descendent of Superman (and Lois) is the version I like best, in spite of the creepy part where she has a crush on Superboy. Can't blame Superboy for being attracted to her though, she supposedly looks a lot like the woman he would marry. The only super power Laurel has is invulnerability. Thanks again Michael!

Conventionless Convention Sketch Update

Doing all these sketches has been a lot of fun. Thanks so much to all of you that have been on the list, sometimes more that once. Just an FYI, I am still taking requests. Please let anyone you know that might be interested to check out the blog and sign up. I am down to the last eight of the list and will probably have them done by the end of next week. In no particular order, they are:

Madella (Legion Academy)
Phoenix (Rachel Summers)
Spazzy (Hogwarts)
OMAC (classic)
OMAC (new)
Lucy Lane (Stewardess uniform)
Superwoman (Recent Lucy Lane version)
Toyman (Silver/bronze age)

Thanks again everyone.
