Karmatron Pin-Up by mengblom Karmatron Pin-Up by mengblom
For over four years, I've enjoyed the amazing friendship of the talented creators at Ka-Boom! Studio in Mexico City. Five visits to Mexico later, I'm now considered (and honored) to be an official "Ka-Boomer". As such, I was invited to create a pin-up illustration for the latest issue of Oscar González Loyo's "Karmatron", a hugely popular comic book series throughout Mexico. I based the design on the cover of Whiz Comics #22 (1941), one of my all-time favorite covers of the so-called "Golden Age" of comics (the late 1930's through the 1940's). Both covers are "paradox images", since the mighty Karmatron and Captain Marvel are the mystical/magical alter-egos of the young Zacek and Billy Batson (respectively), and wouldn't actually be able to share the same space. I also added some vintage fonts and "distressing" effects to give the illusion of age, as if it were actually a comic book from the far-off Golden Age era.
