You know that feeling you get when you put a good comic book down and
smile? It’s that tingling sensation in the back of your brain, besides
the superglue,  that tells you these great characters deserve
immortalization in plastic. Basically that happened to me around
Christmas time. It started out as a long experimentation with fabric
and Multiple Man and quickly expanded into a total line up. I had the
Savage Dragon lying around and the proportions looked dead on, so I
went with it. Panda was my only kid sized figure, so I had a good start
there as well. As for head choice, there’s not a whole lot to pick from
so I went with the J. Scott Campbell Danger Girl head, which had some
child like qualities in it along with some of the eerie adultness of
Layla Miller. I chose the Strider head for Ric because, well, I had
nothing else. I wanted each figure to utilize a bit of fabric in the
design as to expand my experience with the medium. The most fabric is
on the first Multiple Man, his with the least fabric (none) on his
variant which I picked up for $1 at Salvation Army. Hope you all enjoy!
