I was just describing the piece to Julie (the iPhone doesn't do it
justice) and she said to me, "Covet it?"

Covet doesn't even begin to describe it...

Man....this is going to take a while to drink it all in...

Favorite figures after just one quick run through the high rez scan:

Human Torch and Negative Man flying together
Mxyzptlk
Spider-Man (just looks perfect)
Ace the Bat Hound (great job with the quadrupeds in this piece, JB!)
Lincoln and JFK (wow!)


Wow....just wow.  So, will we get to see an update with the added figures...?

Inspirational piece.  If I was an artist I think I would throw away all my art supplies, but as an art collector I feel inspired to dream big!

I might at some point, Nathan, but I already need a nap now... I can't imagine staying up long enough to complete such a task!

Among the characters who are "doubled up," I count two Dick Graysons, one of whom (Batman II) is merely a character in speculative stories written by Alfred. Another might be Clark Kent, but if that's Sally Sellwyn standing next to him, then he's likely to be "Jim White," if I'm not mistaken...

Man, I love scanning this one over and over again... SO many Silver Age favorites here!

Nathan's entire request for this one could've been simplified to: "I would like a 20x30 commission and tell JB to make it the most awesome one ever!!!!"  Which is really the way to go.  I've been thinking too small.  My requests only specify to make mine better than Paul Greer's.

I love how many of these characters exist just for reasons of sheer, exuberant fun! Impy, Bat-Mite, Wonder Tot, Streaky, Ace, Herbie, Harvey characters, all wonderful, inventive characters who exist simply to bring a smile...

I also love how many small emotional stories are being told here, simply by virtue of who the characters are, their expressions, and where they are in proximity to one another... I'm thinking here of Thomas Wayne looking up at his son and Jonathan Storm looking up at his daughter...

And, as noted upthread, there is magic in seeing the Human Torch and Negative Man sailing through the air side-by-side...

In seeing the Harvey characters, that really brings back memories for me!  I loved reading Casper, and Hot Stuff, and Baby Huey, and Little Audrey, and Sad Sack....  and so many, many more.  Now those were fun comics to read!

I've got a HOT STUFF collection on the shelf downstairs. He was my
favorite of the Harvey bunch.
