I draw comics, ride bikes, and eat melon; sometimes simultaneously.

TRDL 2018 Series No. 88 - Ice

I’m a kid of the 70s, and while I read Marvel comics for as long as I can remember, other than my friend’s Teen Titans books when I was younger, my DC reading pretty much started during the Kevin Maguire Justice League era. I was really obsessed with his facial expressions in his work, from the Handbook stuff to the sequential art. Fire and Ice were popular at the time, along with Guy Gardiner and a few others from that lineup. Ice’s costume was, in retrospect, VERY 80s snow-bunny. But I was always a sucker for basic color blocking. Here’s my take on it. Slightly different haircut and furrier boots, and the gloveless fingers resolve a little differently. Ice was the nice girl on the team, which was obviously a counterpoint to Fire’s implied experience. Still like the character!
