Yes, yes, yes, I know. I'm a novelist, which basically means I get paid to pursue my hobby. I get it.
But I've found another hobby. And this one is almost guaranteed to never make me any money! (So you know it's a pure pursuit.)
I've taken to creating animated GIFs of old Comic Book covers. Here are the ones I've done so far:
That's Adventure Comics #274, from 1960. Superboy met a monster and... Yeah. That's about it.
This is, thus far, the most popular one I've done. Superman became a merman so he could marry Lori Lemaris. Except it was all a big prank to get Lois to marry some other sap. Which didn't work. Apparently, becoming a merman just made Superman that much more attractive.
The only non-Superman cover I've done (so far). But, if I had to do a non-Superman cover, what better one to do than this classic love triangle?
Superboy lost his memories. Sad day.
And, finally, Superman kissed Mighty Maid to fool the world into thinking he had fallen in love. PLOT TWIST: Mighty Maid was actually Supergirl in disguise. You know, his cousin. And yes, they really did kiss inside this comic. Ah, the 60s.
I intend to do a LOT more of these. Hope you liked them!
PS: If you go subscribe to my tumblr, you'll see these pretty much as I finish them. And other things I make or like.
