Claude’s Swampy Bust & Woodrue’s Hairdo

The extremely talented and generous, Claude Jordan sent me this amazing 3D printed bust a couple months ago and I’m excited to share photos. The head is 6 inches tall and is very detailed. Following Claude’s Instagram feed has inspired me to get a 3D printer (word is that Santa may be bringing me one). Take the time to check out his work, he produces fun creations.

Another great, recent acquisition was one of Jerry Serpe’s color guides to Super-Team Family #14 (1978), page 25. The page features Floronic Man. He’s another one of my favorite characters and I hope to own an original page with him on it. Until then, this color guide will do just fine. Serpe’s colors are painted over the work of, Arvell Jones (penciler) and  Romeo Tanghal (inker)

Floronic Man made his way into this issue as a member of the Secret Society of Super-Villains. On the page, he’s depicted with Gorilla Grodd, Star Sapphire and Jean Loring.

“Super-Team #14/Dec-Jan/J-4781/pg 25” is written at the top of the page.

This era of Floronic Man is my favorite, which made finding the guide very enjoyable. In the late 70s/early 80s, Floronic Man sported great hairdos. It was shaggy in some books, a tight bush in others. This comic provides both! Below are some detailed photos from my guide.

Below are photos from the cover of Super-Team Family #14, the book that this color guide is from. As you can see, Floronic Man looks very different from how he’s depicted within the book. The depiction of him on this cover is my favorite Floronic Man style.

Find a copy of this book and you too can enjoy Woodrue’s great hair styles.
