I decided to try the contest, too...with SHAZAM!!!
Captain Marvel first appeared in "WHIZ COMICS" #2 (1940) published by Fawcett, but due to some legal stuff, his publication stopped in 1953. Later on in 1972, he found a welcome home at DC Comics becoming one of the most popular characters in the DC universe. I drew the "NEW 52" version where he first made an appearance in a back story in "Justice League #7". No longer 'Captain Marvel', he is now only known as "SHAZAM"!
This might be giving away my age, but I grew up in the 1980's and really loved Marv Wolfman & George Perez's, New Teen Titans comic book. And personally speaking, I really enjoyed Young Justice, which later on, ended up morphing into Teen Titans.
So, just when the New 52, was starting to roll out, and I heard that the previous New Teen Titans and Teen Titans history was being wiped out of continuity, I wanted to draw a piece that symbolized what both generations of the team had meant to me.
And thus, we ended up with this pin up that has both generations of Teen Titans together, in a very relaxed environment, just outside of their iconic Titan's Tower, enjoying a nice day, having a bbq/picnic.
The whole idea, started with the idea of Nightwing and Flash, telling both Robin and Superboy about their adventures, when they were Teen Titans, and the crazy exploits that occurred. Overall, it was a very fun pin up to draw and colour, cause it allowed me to relive some of that old nostalgia I had when I first started reading comic books, back in the day.
