Ben Towle's silver-age superheroes


Ben Towle was commissioned to draw DC's silver-age superheroes and did a pretty super job; I like how these are instantly recognisable yet significantly unique thanks to the retention of Towle's own style. Often when people draw huge properties like Batman or Wonder Woman, they merge into a cookie cutter depiction and lose what makes their art distinctive in the first place. Love these old school costumes as well, they really add to characterisation, which is surely part of the function of costume design. You can see the whole set over at Towle's blog, where he's also currently open to commission work, if you fancy something special.
