Too Many Long Boxes!

End of Summer
Welcome to Le Musee de Bivolo

Nestled in the wooded north suburbs of Central City, Le Museé de Bivolo has become the premiere art gallery for comic book fan artists. The owner and curator is Roy G. Bivolo, formerly a tortured artiste whose color-blindness led him to a life of crime. Now reformed, he is your host through our monthly excursion of the finest in fan artworks. Ladies and Gentlemen...the Rainbow Raider.

Zooper Friends "Zooperfriends" by Yocum

New contributor Yokum is the best color artist I have seen in ages.

Oh. I've just been informed this is black and white. Well, that's fine with me when the quality of the inks is this good. The Just'a Lotta Animals and Hoppy the Marvel Bunny are shown here in the classic Superfriends pose.

The Hawks: Progression "The Hawks: Progression" by Chris Franklin

It never fails...some of the best works come in past the deadline for the previous issue. Here we see the current Hawkman and Hawkgirl, as well as the different Hawks of the last 60 years. It's a stunning work with a good layout. (It reminds me of the work McFarlane did on "Infinity Inc.")

Dark Knight 2 Cast "DK2 Cast" by Yocum

Well, something good had to come out of Dark Knight 2, and here it is.

Roy G. Bivolo, also known as the Rainbow Raider, left a lucrative career at DC to beome the host of Fanzing's art gallery. Color blind since birth, he has carved a reputation as an artiste extraordinaire.

is a professional graphic artist, and has penciled comics for Illusion Studios and Newbreed Comix. Folks on the Dixonverse board know him as Earth 2 Robin. Chris lives in the sticks of Kentucky with his lovely wife Cindy, his young son Andrew, his lazy dog Buggaloo, and his ever-growing collection of DC related toys and memorabilia. Chris is one of the artists on our first comic book, "Fanzing Presents: Job Wanted", which can be purchased at Too Many!

When not drawing funny looking spandex clad super-heros, Russ Yocum divides his time between church, substitute teaching, 2 Siberian Huskies, a ferret, a green anole, assorted tropical fish, homeschooling his sons Russell Jr and Zeke, doting on his wife, Jo and drafting run-on sentences! In his SPARE time he is considering building an ark!
