More Little Pictures

The little picture of Jennifer Kale came from this site, as did this drawing of a character who was created in 1975 by Steve Gerber and Mary Skrenes.


I still don’t know the name of the artist, but he seems to have done hundreds of these.

    Here’s a little background on the Micro-heroes Steve:

    In short, they were done by a lot of different people, with two “founding fathers”, but because these things are shared and distributed all over, it’s probably going to be difficult to find the people who did those specific ones.

    And while I have nothing more to do right now…

    Scroll down to “Daydreamers” for two of your most famed classic characters.

    A history of these characters is located at

    Great link. Hadn’t thought of characters like these in years. I kind of wish Marvel would go back to more simple art, goofy, kid friendly characters like these. They were so much fun.

    When we were kids, my brother and I used to pour through the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe and ask each other trivia. Great stuff.

    Still browsing that site, Steve. Found this at the bottom of the Fantastic Four section:

    ALL images above were created by Rich Bellacera except where noted by an asterisk (*).
    ERIK ELZENAAR: Mephisto, Morgan Le Fey, Klaw.
    ROBERT BRADLEY: Alicia Masters (armored & animated by me), Spider-Man, Maximus, Karnak, Gorgon, Sandman, Trapster, Torgo. Maximus, Mole Man, Red Ghost, Wizard, Awesome Android, Mad Thinker, Immortus, Lady Dorma (“classic image”), Kang, Rama-Tut, Hate-Monger & Molecule Man.

    Steve – Let me know if you want any of those done (I’m one of those microhero maker guys).

  7. John R. Troy Says:

    I dunno about Mr. Gerber himself, but if you’re gonna create some of Gerber’s classics, I’d do the following:

    * The cast of Hard Time.
    * The supporting cast of Howard the Duck.
    * The third Foolkiller.
    * Angar the Screamer. (Gerber creation).
    * Poison and “Mop Man“. (Little known Gerber creations in MCP and The Evolutionary War).
    * Stewart the Rat.

    Those be my votes.

    Me, I’d love to see one of Nevada. Or the ostrich. But that’s my favorite book anyway. 🙂

  9. Steve Gerber Says:

    Dave: I’m with Rachel. I’d love to see a micro Nevada, Bolero, and De Vesuvio, the latter preferably with an animated lava lamp head.

    The Omega micro hero was created by Robert Bradley, who posts on my message board as “Bobster”. Omega was “lifted” from his site:

    Wow, Robert’s got 4 alternate Howard templates.
