Totally 80s by J-Scott-Campbell Totally 80s by J-Scott-Campbell
An "oldie" but a "goodie"! This originally appeared back in Wizard magazine #136 in 2002 as the opening spread to an article entitled "80's EXTREME!"

Pencil line-art by ME! Digital colors by the talented Matt Milla!


UPDATE!: (Robert Stack: "Unsolved Mysteries" voice!)

"Woooaaahhh!!!" Over 30,000 views and about 500 comments in 24 hours!!! And without being an "Official Daily Deviation"! You guys are the BEST!! Ok, just a few additional general replies:

* The robot looking, armored guy in black on the far right is a "Micronaut"! I agree, I didn't think he was in the same league as the rest, but the editors at Wizard magazine insisted he be there for some reason, so, "there you go!"

* I too have a soft spot for SilverHawks, M.A.S.K, The REAL Ghostbusters, Bravestar, and even Jem!, My little Pony & Rainbow Brite (Lol!) but this was the list that we came up with as a group! Maybe I'll have to do a "Totally 80's" II (Yes, with roman numerals, 'cause that's SO f**kin' 80's!!! ;-P!) Make your suggestions be heard!

* Yes, "Battle of the Planets" (or "G-FORCE" as it will ALWAYS be known to THIS big kid!) was probably more 70's, you're right...

* YES, there IS a Robotech back there!

* Comments that mentioned Mrs PacMan, finding the Rubik's cube, and specifically taking the time to locate ALL 4 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, give yourselves a GOLD STAR, You guys RULE!


And for a little "SeX-ay 80's"...

;P!

As a child of the 70s and 80s, I can firmly attest that Micronauts were a 70s thing, and were on their way out by the 80s. I had that big black guy (Darth Vader wannabe), and only in recent years did I realize he's a near-total rip of Nagai Go's Steel Jeeg.
