> On January 12, 2011, cartoonist Martin Filchock is going to turn 99. He worked for Centaur Comics in the 1930s, creating many characters such as Mighty Man (later Mighty Man and Super Ann), Fire-Man, the Owl, the Buzzard, the Ermine, the Headless Horseman, Obo Ossie, and Huck P. Shaw, the Corn-Fed Constabule. Today, he is still drawing and selling cartoons to local newspapers in Rogersville, Tennesee, as well as national publications such as Readers Digest, the Saturday Evening Post, and Highlights for Children, where his "Check and Double Check" feature has run for many years.
>
> Martin says his goal is to get into the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest working cartoonist, a record currently held by caricaturist Al Hirschfeld, which Martin will achieve in August.
>
> Anyone wishing to send him a card or birthday wishes can write to: Martin Filchock, 1376 Spruce Pine Rd, Rogersville, TN 37857-7400

I got the date wrong. Martin's turning 99 on 01/06, this Thursday. I'd better get my card in the mail tonight!

Here's another one.  I don't know the artist but he can draw pretty good and does commissions.

I actually started some commissioning (?) and will be placing them here as I get them:

http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryDetail.asp?GCat=56510

(I think that's the public address).

So far, I only have one back (The Grim Reaper), but have one to come from Hembeck, another one by Michael Mikowsky, and one from Mitch Ballard.

Mitch also did a drawing (to be revised and inked) of some of my own characters (with a couple PD updates) here:

http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryPiece.asp?Piece=714875&GSub=87567

Plastino (see earlier post) is tres expensive, but I have a pretty good idea, just have to print the reference material and get a money order to him.

Very Cool Grim Reaper Roy!
Please let us know when you get anything more.
I'm a big fan of Hembeck and I'm sure he'd love to do some GA characters for you.

Some new artwork at

It's divided up into "Gallery Rooms", so you can click on the individual rooms to see the contents.

There's one that's being inked/colored right now that some Silver Age fans might find interesting ...

Some new artwork...

That's really cool.  I like the golden agers, myself.  Nice takes on some of those characters.  I like what's been done with Grim Reaper's costume, ferinstance.

BCing you
I make comics!

Wow Roy.
You've gotten yourself some GREAT works there!
Hembeck has always been a favourite of mine but I think Mitch Ballard's work especially the 'Golden Agers Who's Handbook' is very very well done. 
Please let us know when you update.  These were a lot of fun!

Yeah, Mitch is really good, obviously a George Perez disciple, which is good. I want him to do a few more, then I'll move on to some other artists.

I've also got a Golden Age/Silver Age one coming up that's pretty sweet.

Eventually, I think I'll have had the Black Orchid appear in more commissions than she did panels in her two appearances back in the day. Sad.

OK

Ernie Chan was a prolific cover artists for DC Comics during my "Golden Age" of the 1970s - I'm thinking of getting a commission, like a cover re-imagining of this:

http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/File:Freedom_Fighters_Vol_1_1.jpg

Yeah, so if we were to replace the Freedom Fighter members with other Golden Age/Public Domain characters of similar power sets, who would you pick?

Phantom Lady =
Uncle Sam =
Black Condor =
Human Bomb =
Ray =
Doll Man = (almost forgot him)

Tough one!

Phantom Lady = Black Cat (Harvey), Lady Luck (Quality) or Senorita Rio (Fiction House)
Uncle Sam = Puppeteer (Fox), V-Man (Fox), Captain Freedom (Harvey) or Man of War (Centaur)
Black Condor = War Eagle (Lev Gleason), Green Lama (Hillman), Stardust (Fox)
Human Bomb = The Comet (MLJ) or Microface (Hillman) or TNT Todd (Centaur)
Ray = Wonderman (Fox), Atomic Thunderbolt (Regor) or Nightmare (Hillman)
Doll Man = I'm stuck here.  Mighty Man or Minimidget? (Centaur)

I know I'll think of some I forgot later.  And yes some don't make sense but they have a cool costume and isn't that half the fun of sticking various heroes together for a commission?

I hope that helps.

Yeah, Roy,
Ernie is one of the greats. If you do send in a commission, tell him I said hello. And did I ever share with you guys my "other" portrait? From another GREAT, Alfredo Alcala. Not commissioned, but a fantastic surprise done almost 40 years ago - when my hair wasn't quite so gray.

And I don't remember seeing that one when I was there on my visit with you Jim, I did see the one you use as your avatar here though on the staircase wall.
