Halloween week.

You know I looked it up and there have been 4 different "Madame Xanadu" books ?

























This was a cool wrap around cover. the art was reproduced on the back without any of the text. I recall my brother did an enlargement of this (using that grid method)


10 pages from 32 page book Madame Xanadu no. 1






I also would say that the horns (the way they were drawn) I copied when I made horn masks of my own.

Thanks for posting - always good to see some prime Marshall (and I love the cameo by the Joker) but you've got one of the pages in the wrong order. But nice mask!

I love Madame Xanadu. She's one of my favorite DC chicks. :D

And your mask is totally freakin' awesome.

I remember this very well; possibly one of the single most dated Englehart stories ever, and that's saying something. And one of the silliest. I got the feeling this story got delayed a while, and was an inventory publication like a lot of those first mainstream direct-only comics(I think this one WAS the first). It would have made more sense in 1978 or 79.

A puppy? The solution to 70s decadence and junkiedom(the long-nosed dude is, I think I recall, a junkie) is a puppy?(and read the rest of the story--in some ways it's not that different from a few Jack Chick CRUSADERS comics, except without any conviction)

Though, having lived in the Bay Area when that performance artist was pissed on and sodomized with a bottle onstage at that Willie Brown event(look it up), I should amend that: I USED to think this was dated. Perhaps only depending on the city.

Suh-weet art, though.
