Sketchbook Wednesday - Challengers of the Unknown

Sorry for the short posts lately. It's been a bit busy around here. Not just work, but family stuff and holiday related activities have been taking up more time than normal.

Today I decided to do a sketch of one of my favorite teams. Not the Legion this time, but the Challengers of the Unknown. I was first introduced to them when they were in the pages of DC Comics title SUPER-TEAM FAMILY. James Sherman on pencils and Jack Abel on inks. I'm a big Jim Sherman fan and it was his work that drew me in. I really like the concept of this team: All four were should have died in a plane crash but came out unharmed. All of their wrist watches had stopped at the time of the crash. The summed their lives up as living on borrowed time and proceeded to live life to the fullest. All four were in the top tier of their professions already and now they banded together. Fun stuff. Check out the SHOWCASE PRESENTS: THE CHALLENGERS OF THE UNKNOWN for some of their early stories and background.

Side note, I own several original pages from that SUPER-TEAM FAMILY run. Maybe one day I will get some more. :)
