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.

Be sure to click on these pictures to examine them close-up. The real beauty's in the details. People with current standard browsers will actually see the images floating in front of them, where you can move them around to your pleasure. Those with older browsers will see them in a separate window and will have to hit their "Back" buttons to return here.

Crime Syndicate "Crime Syndicate" by Russ Yocum

Here's a parody cover of Justice League #1 featuring the Crime Syndicate from, Earth-3? Earth-C? One of those pre-crisis Earths.... I guess it doesn't really matter which one.

Russ gave me the roster for this pic-- some of these guys were designed with help from fellow Fanzingers on the Forum. From top left: Mr. Horrific, Ultraman, Superwoman, (next row) Aqua-King, Johnny Quick, Owl Man, R'hys R'uss the Martian Mankiller, Shadow Hawk-Thief, Power Ring, and Lord Lightning. I can't tell who's who, can you?

Darkseid "Darkseid" by Yusuf Madhiya

Darkseid is COOL, man. My kinda villain. And this pic does him justice. Wait-- did I just say "justice" in praise of Darkseid? I guess I did.

Fred Sadek "Harley Quinn" by pro artist Terry Dodson, colored by Fred Sadek

Fred Sadek used a black and white sketch by Terry Dodson to show off his coloring skills. I can't *see* colors, of course, but even I can see this is impressive.

Wow. Awesome. Now this is what I like to see-- bold, brash, digital color on a hot momma like Harley Quinn! And nobody pulls off a brown leotard like old Harley! Keep 'em coming, Fred my man!

Composite Superman and Bizarro "Composite Superman and Bizarro" by Russ Yocum

Y'know, I don't think we've ever featured a page of sequentials here at the Musee before. We might have to open another wing, if they become popular...

Neron "Neron, ladies man!" by Yusuf Madhiya

I said Darkseid was cool before. Can I change my vote? I guess it would be in bad taste to do that, but this is an amazing image. Notice the expressions on the faces! Yusuf knows how to draw the ladies...

Batvillains "Batvillains" by Russ Yocum

I love villains month, and Russ delivers again here with major Bat-Villains. A tad sketchy, but sketches have *joi de vivre*!

Dracula "Dracula" by Yusuf Madhiya

oop! I almost forgot! Yusuf made this image of Dracula "how he should be depicted...disgusting and scary" He's scary in this pic, that's for sure. Well, that's all for this month. Remember everybody-- if you do a pic of me, the colors are from left to right: brown, brown, tan, brown, dark brown, dark brown, dark brown. Got it? See you all next month!

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.

Fred Sadek has a blurb.

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!

Yusuf Madhiya is one of Fanzing's cover artists. Hailing from India, Yusuf 's artwork is also on display at his website.
