Spaceknights vs Silver Hawks
This one here has been around for a while now but has been hiding on deviant art in relative obscurity. The artist who goes by the handle desperateMe describes this as something he did many years ago and done with a felt tip. I wanna say this was done by referencing some clip art but I can't put my finger on it. But it's pretty cool just the same it has an intense feel to it. It's like he's looking down on an enemy he just gave a beat down to.
So that brings me to these guys. Late last month I was hanging out at a buddies place when he asks me if I'm in the mood to watch a Silverhawks CD he had gotten as a gift recently. I said sure why not even though I really wasn't and we managed to get through the first couple episodes but couldn't take any more after that. But I'll be damned if Silver Hawks like Robocop weren't in part influenced by Rom. I shit you not, watch this funny ass brief video review of the series that among other things goes over the premise of the Silver Hawks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DmoCI0aopg
And speaking of intense ain't she a dead ringer for Sabra? And unbelievably beautiful it's hard to stop looking at her face. Just as a reminder Sabra was created by Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema with inspiration for the concept of the character supplied by Belinda Glass. And no I still don't know if Glass was Jewish or not.
