Bracketology: Dressed for Success -- 2nd Round, part 1
Doug: You've arrived at the second round of our "Best Costume of the Bronze Age" polls. On the sidebar you can find 32 superhero costumes going head-to-head in 16 polls -- choose your favorites, based on looks alone. Save that love of hero and storyline for other discussions; in this little exercise, we're all about the duds! Debuting on the brackets today are classic outfits like Batman and Black Panther, and some Bronze Age mainstays such as Adam Warlock and Nightcrawler. The other half of the bracket is going to be fun as well, and we'll get to that on Wednesday.
Doug: Today's question is for those of you who spent some time drawing characters and/or full comics when you were a kid. Whose costumes did you think were especially fun to draw, and whose were a pain in the butt? Were there certain artists' styles you tried to emulate? What part of the anatomy gave you the most trouble -- hands, feet, or faces? Were you good enough to draw from memory, or did you look at comics as you drew? Thanks in advance for your comments today!
