Hand drawn or painted FDC (first day covers) have been done since the 1940s. Over the past few years I have begun combining my collection of comic character hand drawn sketches with FDCs. This blog is being maintained for the purpose of sharing my collection...

Michael Grassia - Doctor Fate
2013.11.03 Jersey Shore Comic Show, Forked River, NJ
Often when I request a sketch, I do not have the opportunity to watch it being drawn, and I like the surprise and anticipation. My surprise on Doctor Fate, was that I thought I had posted this!
I was going through my files and realized I had never posted this cover from Michael Grassia, creator of Plunger Pup. Grassier has worked in illustration, graphic design, web design, video production, photography and puppetry. He can be found at all the best NJ based shows.
Doctor Fate is a DC Comics character appearing in several incarnations. The original Doctor was created by Gardner Fox and Howard Sherman appearing in More Fun Comics #55, May 1940.
