Recovered: Extra! Captain America Serial With Shield!

This is an extra before the next "Recovered" proper.
I'm not going to get into the specifics of the Republic serial from 1944, rather I want to mention the main issue I have with it.
The shield.
The lack thereof, specifically.
The serial had good old Cap with no weapon save a gun.  That in and of itself would have been an issue a few years ago but with Ultimate Cap and Bucky-Cap, well it's not as big a topic.
Long story short, I fixed the problem, so enjoy!

Recovered: Two Flash Covers of One World!

Really enjoyed doing this one.  Flash is one of my favs: Golden Age or Silver Age.
I tried some speed blur but it took away from the integrity of the original cover.  I didn't try to match the poses exactly, just the idea.
Hope you like the "Flash of Two World's" recover!

ReCovered: All Star 3 in Mego form!

For your geeky pleasure, I present one more now with a couple more coming tomorrow.
This is one of my favorites, as I am a big Justice Society fan and have wanted to do this one for a long time.  It took a few years to get these completed and I still change and update.  Would not be at all surprised if another version of this found its way here sometime in the future.

Recovered: Superman 14 Classic Cover with a Mego!

Well, seems as good of a time as any to get the old ball rolling again here.
This next set of posts was partially inspired by the wonderful "Covered" blog.  Some would say these would probably fit better in our sister blog: The Second Rule of Fight Club.
They may be right but I had fun creating these (something I have not had a lot of as of late) and wanted them firmly planted here in the Captain's quarters.

All the megos are my own customs and the design work is mine.  All were inspired by a comic cover but I did not labor to make an exact recreation.  Would've taken the fun out of it.
Much of the work involved was done quite some time ago, but is just now being shown to you, the receptive (I hope!) public.
Hope you enjoy!

"We Have to Kill Bathound..."

"...before he blabs to another dog or one of those pesky squirrels that have been nosing about.  They're on Vickie Vale's payroll, I just know it!"
Y'know Bats, he's been hanging out with Bruce and Dick too.
Hmmm.  Let's look at this closer: While a dog's brain is only one-tenth the size of a human brain, the part that controls smell is 40 times larger than in humans. A dogs sense of smell is about 1,000 to 10,000,000 times more sensitive than a humans (depending on the breed). A human has about 5 million scent glands, as compared to a dog who has anywhere from 125 million to 300 million.
So, what'dya think: you'd put your masks on and he'd freak out wondering where you went?  Like an infant in a game of peek-a-boo?
He's obviously allowed access to Wayne manor in order to get the pic.  Heck, he could've just wiped his butt on the Bat-Floor and it stuck.
This is why Silver Age Batman is so cool.  It's not aimed at adults but neither is it aimed at sanity.
I kid because I love!

Robin is not Gay...

However, Alfred is flaming and needs a little help in the hook-up department every now and then.

Spider-Man: Black and White or Along Came a Spider...

NEWSFLASH:  Spider-Man joins Fantastic Four! 
Footie manufacturers and PJ conglomerates all ecstatic!

Those feet surely will inspire fear
in the criminally inclined, eh? 
I don't believe how cute that little Spider-Toe looks
all pointy and whatnot.
