Artist's Description

From the opening first page art of a comic book, I manage to digitally fold a paper airplane and make it into art. Once you look a little closer at these illustrations, you start to see the work and fine detail in them. So often these artworks are limited to the collectors or worse yet, those who have them and forget about them.

I like to think I am preserving a bit of history here, making the most of the little patch of history I can touch on.

This particular cover is from the Silver Age of Comics, 1976. It has a wonderful, classic struggle scene between the hero and the local natives who seem to not appreciate his presence. In the background is the classic damsel in distress. No doubt our hero will find his way out of this mess.

If you dig into these vintage comics, you start to find little treasures that are worth keeping. I have a bunch of these old comics, and this seemed like the best thing to do with them, because I can.

This is “Appropriation Art”, or at least it’s my version of it. It’s a tribute to my youth, and the time I spent reading trashy magazines. -YoPedro
