SECOND POST: Concept-O-Rama!

Thanks for joining us in the second installment of our GoldenAge blog.
This week we're going to give you the premise of the book and some of the early concept art. Along with another FAN-tastic piece of FANart!

Oliver Glickman was a superhero once.

Back in the day he went by the name, STARBLAST. He defended his city against those who would see it destroyed. He was a beacon of hope amongst the ever-growing community of technicolor and spandex-clad defenders of MajorCity.

Oliver worked as a Taymag Repairman, he used his very free scheduel as a cover for his superheroics. He found out that as hard as he tried, there were always going to be heroes who were stronger, faster, and smarter than he was. He never made his way out of the superhero D-list. He was a second stringer, a bench warmer. After years of a lack-luster career, he hung up the cape and skull-cap for a quiet, "normal life." Now, decades later and in his mid-seventies, he's back at it. Dispite his arthritus, bad hearing, and occasional "power-short-circuit," Oliver Glickman is bound and determined to take to the sky once again, even at his GOLDEN AGE!

This is one of the earliest drawings of Starblast (the 2nd or 3rd, i think)

This is one of Kirk's early "Age Scale Charts."
In order to determine how Starblast would look through the decades

More of Kirk's freakin' gorgeous sketching magic that he does so well.

This week's FanArt is a double threat.
Drawn by Israel Cruz (AtomikMike) and grey-toned by Dan McDaid (The Last Minuters)

Such a cool character - and I love that name! What exactly is the catalyst for Oliver coming out of retirement?

And I didn't know Israel Cruz did work for Alias. Cool. Thanks a lot for the shout out!
