  1. You realy should get these made in to posters and pls pls do some more .

    • Thanks! I would make them into posters, but legally couldn’t sell them because the characters are DC Comics/Warner Bros. I will eventually get around to doing the whole Justice League as circus performers. It’s an idea I’ve had for a comic for quite awhile. Wonder Woman’s costume doesn’t even have to change – it’s a generic acrobat costume.

  2. Love what you have done here. can’t wait to see the rest. Maybe you can do a deal with marvel and DC for a card set?Very cool! I wrote an article called “Super Suits” a long time ago about how comic book hero costuming developed from circus and carnival performers and wrestlers for the late 1900’s. Of course Robin of Batman fame was an acrobat and his costume was pure Tightwire act fare. Maybe you could do a deal with Marvel and DC to do some decks they could sell? Do a little bio of each character on the back…

    • Thanks for the comment. I would love to make a card set! Another project to consider…
      I would love to read your article if you have a link to it.

  3. Great Work! I can’t wait to see the rest of the cards. Maybe do a bio of each character on the back? Maybe you could do a deal with Marvel or DC to do some card packs to sell? These are great concepts. I wrote an article some years ago (now on one of my blogs…) called “Super Suits The development of Superhero costumes, where I described the development from the costumes of the Romans and Greeks, to the circus performers and wrestlers of the late 1900’s. You captured the time perfectly! Keep up the grande work!
