Karate Kid by jerrycarr Karate Kid by jerrycarr
After some initial misgivings, I've become a big fan of the new Legion of Super-Heroes cartoon. Here's my first homage to the new style and the old heroes. Karate Kid!

"Sweep the knee!"
"No sensei!"

Oops, wrong Karate Kid...

Thanks much! I've been a Karate Kid fan since I was a kid. I even liked the animated version of his origin on the Legion cartoon a couple years back. Very cool.

Like the first guy, KK was one of my faves as a kid. I remember picking up a bunch of issues at a yard sale or a flea market somewhere in the 80's. Dog-eared and damaged, but tons of fun.

That's what I like about a lot of Timms work, he pulls in characters from his childhood that might be forgotten.

Great job.

Aw man, as you can tell, Timm has been a huge inspiration to me. The last season of JLU was a little piece of Shangri-La to me, with all the great 70s references. I just about cried when the Warlord episode ran.

Pop nostalgia is really driving my artwork these days--it's just sooo friggin' much fun!

The sad thing is that when I first looked at this I thought to myself... Man that doesnt look like Ralph Machioo in the least... then like 30 seconds later it clicked that it was the Legion Karate Kid.

*hangs head in shame and wanders away...*

Y'know, I toyed with drawing this as a caricature of Ralph Macchio, in the Legion outfit. Then I came to my senses...

Yah man, 10:00am saturday morning. I don't remember the channel. I think it's the CW (used to be WB). Took me a couple of episodes to like the character designs, but now I love 'em. It's cool, 'cuz it feels kinda like the Legion of yesteryear.
