By Special Request of the Dude...

Here's a link to Steve Rude's Ebay auction to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. It's a snazzy Superman painting and the proceeds go to a good cause. The Rudes say this is Steve's way of giving back, especially after everyone was so generous to him recently.

The painting itself is epic. It's a powerful, somewhat Fleischer-esque Superman surrounded by flames as he wards off a meteor no doubt imperiling innocents on some inhabited planet, perhaps even our own! I love Rude's Silver/Bronze Age Marvel character work-- you don't see him take on DC's heroes all that often, but when he does it's magic.

And now it's time for a cartoon:
