Random Panels of Comic Book Weirdness # 45


I've always enjoyed artist Sheldon Moldoff's work on the Golden Age HAWKMAN in FLASH COMICS. It's filled with well-done Alex Raymond swipes and lots of photo reference, giving it a unique look for the time period. Sometimes, though, the tracing and copying led to inadvertently awkward poses such as the one seen here. What should be a relatively simple view of the Hawk (as he was often called) running ends up looking more like our hero slipping on a banana peel!

it does look quite awkward, but i don't think he is running... at least i hope not-- i think he's springing up to take flight...

I think they're both dancing-- they do dance divinely, don't they? :-)
