An "oldie" but a "goodie"! This originally appeared back in Wizard magazine #136 in 2002 as the opening spread to an article entitled "80's EXTREME!"

Pencil line-art by ME! Digital colors by the talented Matt Milla!


UPDATE!: (Robert Stack: "Unsolved Mysteries" voice!)

"Woooaaahhh!!!" Over 30,000 views and about 500 comments in 24 hours!!! And without being an "Official Daily Deviation"! You guys are the BEST!! Ok, just a few additional general replies:

* The robot looking, armored guy in black on the far right is a "Micronaut"! I agree, I didn't think he was in the same league as the rest, but the editors at Wizard magazine insisted he be there for some reason, so, "there you go!"

* I too have a soft spot for SilverHawks, M.A.S.K, The REAL Ghostbusters, Bravestar, and even Jem!, My little Pony & Rainbow Brite (Lol!) but this was the list that we came up with as a group! Maybe I'll have to do a "Totally 80's" II (Yes, with roman numerals, 'cause that's SO f**kin' 80's!!! ;-P!) Make your suggestions be heard!

* Yes, "Battle of the Planets" (or "G-FORCE" as it will ALWAYS be known to THIS big kid!) was probably more 70's, you're right...

* YES, there IS a Robotech back there!

* Comments that mentioned Mrs PacMan, finding the Rubik's cube, and specifically taking the time to locate ALL 4 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, give yourselves a GOLD STAR, You guys RULE!


And for a little "SeX-ay 80's"...

;P!

Despite being a 90s kid, I remember watching most of these shows!

Serious question: Is there a way to purchase this at poster size - either a print, or a digital download of sufficient resolution to print as a poster?

Ah the 80s, a time of male characters with ambiguous sexualities, a focus on sales more than actual plot, repeated plot, and originality... I don't know what I missed, but I feel it was something you had to be there for.
