Who Should Play...?

Back in my teens and twenties, like many comics fans, I often thought about what actors should play my favorite comics characters. Here's some art I recently did depicting my choices from back then in the roles I thought they were meant for:

Jack Lord as Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD. I always thought Lord looked a lot like Steranko's version of the character.  

Roger Smith as Hal Jordan, the Silver Age Green Lantern. Gil Kane is said to have based Jordan's features on Paul Newman, but I think Smith is a close match as well.

Jim Jensen wasn't an actor--he was the news anchor for WCBS-TV in New York City. But, to me, he looked just like Jack Kirby's version of Reed Richards, Mr. Fantastic...and maybe even a little more like John Byrne's version. Do you have any actors or actresses you think should have been the choice to play a favorite character?

Starting Over

I haven't posted on this blog in several years...but I've discovered I want a place to post things that seem too long or otherwise inappropriate for Facebook.

So I'm back.

What will be posted here? And how often? Good questions.

Postings here may sometimes be political or otherwise contentious. Postings here will sometimes include art that I've recently done. Postings here may well be sporadic, though I will try to get something of some kind up at least once a week. (I promised that in the past, as well.)

All that said, the next post will include some of the aforementioned art.
