Watch out match-heads, I’m feeling particularly nuclear! Watch this space for a new post each day this week through Friday! I can’t promise this kind of frequency on a regular basis, but I’m just brimming with Firestorm goodness this week!
The Music of DC Comics: 75th Anniversary Collection CD was released in September. The album features soundtracks from numerous DC Comics related properties, such as: John Williams’ theme to Superman, Danny Elfman’s theme to Batman, Super Friends, Teen Titans, and more. Our friend Walter from the Booster Gold site Boosterrific.com was kind enough to send a scan of the super-cool inside tray art.
Wow! What an awesome collection of characters! Artist credits listed in the CD go to — Pencils: Adam Dekracker, Brett Breeding, Ryan Sook, Jon Bogdanove, Ian Churchill, Craig Hamilton, Jonboy Meyers, Matthew Clark, Tom Derrinick, Mike McKone, and Admira Wijayai; Inks: Brett Breeding, Ryan Sook, Joe Rubenstein. Colors: Raul Trevino, Dave McCaig, Ryan Kinnard, and Richard Horie.
Long time readers may recognize some of this art. A portion of this artwork was used in the Warner Bros Consumer Products promo back in June. While the majority of the image remains as we saw it in June, a few of the characters have been moved around. For example, Booster Gold, Mr. Terrific, Blue Beetle, Eclipso, and Cyborg have all been moved to different positions. Most interesting is that Aquaman has been completely redrawn for this larger image. The image we saw in June featured Aquaman in his Brightest Day costume. This image features Aquaman in his classic outfit.
Some of the character choices for this collage are interesting. The image features many folks in their iconic appearance, rather than their current costume or identity. Folks that have changed identity, yet appear as the classic version here are: Don Hall as Dove, Dick Grayson as Nightwing, and Barbara Gordon as Batgirl. Classic costumes featured here include: Firestorm, Blue Devil, Martian Manhunter, Wonder Woman, and Batman. I’m also left wondering why they chose to feature Kyle Rayner as Parallax, and why does Hourman have a beard? Bizarre!
Here is a close-up shot of Firestorm, Booster Gold, and Aquaman.
My thanks to Walter of Boosterrific.com for sending these scans my way!
