The Ka-Boom Family (Sneak Peek Sketch)
With DC Comics' recent announcement that Capt. Marvel & the Marvel Family are no more; instead they are establishing a entirely new incarnations of these classic characters, I've gotten the bug to revisit my own original concept, Capt. Ka-Boom and the Ka-Boom Family. Above is a new pencil drawing of the basic costume designs. Once I have had the time to layer in the colors and finish it out, I will write up a more in-depth piece detailing the characters and concept.
For now, just know that while they are not at all parodies or direct homages to the Marvel Family characters, the Ka-Boom Family is a super-hero concept that is intended to embody the playful spirit and tone that once was exemplified in the Marvel Family comics originally published by Fawcett.
So, here's a bit of a teaser for you
Who knows. Maybe I'll get inspired to actually do more with these characters than just design their look and develop the concept.
