From the Archives 14
This goes back to sometime between 5th grade and 8th grade based on the art "style." Starting in about 4th grade, perhaps a bit earlier, I drew hundreds of covers for my own line of comic books, but only bothered to complete the inside stories for a couple of them. Looking through these covers, there was definitely a kind of continuity and implied storylines, crossovers, and shared universe implications.
Most of the characters were obvious ripoffs of established characters from Marvel, DC, Charlton, and even Dell/Gold Key, but some of the original characters seem like they might still have some potential. Spike Man is not one of them.
If you're curious to see more of these than take a look here and here.
