Los Bros. may wince at these early Marvel/DC influenced illustrations now, but The Beat vividly remembers them adorning mailing envelopes of The Comics Journal, and how charming and/or disturbing they were even then.

  1. “Los Bros. may wince at these early Marvel/DC influenced illustrations now…”
    I’m not sure if they wince at their early illustrations because they were influenced by Marvel/DC. In interviews, they never hid their influence and admiration for Kirby/Ditko, among many other sources.

  2. If it says Hernandez, it rules.

  3. Bartholomew Fair says:

    You can tell none of the men in the first picture are the “real” Batman because they’re agreeing with her. ;-)
