Los Bros. may wince at these early Marvel/DC influenced illustrations now, but The Beat vividly remembers them adorning mailing envelopes of The Comics Journal, and how charming and/or disturbing they were even then.

    I’m not sure if they wince at their early illustrations because they were influenced by Marvel/DC. In interviews, they never hid their influence and admiration for Kirby/Ditko, among many other sources.
