Twart - Captain Marvel by ronsalas Twart - Captain Marvel by ronsalas
Posted my latest Comic Twart.

I've always liked Capt. Marvel, even more than Superman. Always thought he had the greatest premise for a superhero ever. Always thought his costume design was better.
As I grew older I still maintained this belief. But now it's bolstered by my love of mythology. Because Capt. Marvel at his essence is a character powered by myth.

Quite right. The reasons that you mentioned regarding your love for Captain Marvel are basically the same as mine. Also, it wouldn't hurt to say that Alex Ross's version of the character helped me a lot in getting "reacquainted" once again with the character (Specifically KINGDOM COME and POWER OF HOPE). I grew up watching the 80's cartoon. :D

This is so awesome. I'm relatively new to this character but I do so adore him. Much more than Superman as well. The character is just so charming and wholesome. Truly an underrated character.

Awesome job on this <33

I don't know if he's really underrated. Lots of people love him but few people really know how to handle him correctly in such a way as to support a regular comic.

Thanks!

This is so cool! It looks like the Capt. Marvel from the Original B&W live action TV series. I think I'll do a fanart of Capt. Marvel as well. :)

I love how you differentiated the gods by the lack of spot blacks, very clever. I hope you get the chance to color it.

I'm going to say it on the Twart too, but I can't fave this enough, Ron. I loved the pencils to Cap you posted earlier in the week, but the rest of the piece is gorgeous. Such a good idea and I can't believe I haven't seen it exploited a little more now that I've seen this.

Thanks. Yeah, I haven't read every Capt. Marvel story ever but I always found it weird that in a universe of god the gods he gets his powers from are usually absent from his stories.

I seem to remember the gods being part of the intro to the 70's Shazam! show, like they just flashed paintings of them as the narrator talked about them. I could be misremembering it though. And that's just the show.

No, you're right.
The gods also showed up in the Trials of Shazam series but they were "modernized" versions of the gods so I wasn't that keen on them.
