Featured Creature: Devil's Square, The Ruddy Skull

A human skull covered in rust, the Ruddy Skull continually sheds flakes but never seems to lose any of its mass.  The metallic ball in the eye socket appears to be silver and is unaffected by the corrosion.  All attempts to remove the silver ball have failed.  Those who have held the skull claim to see visions of the past, of distant locations and people, and sometimes of the future.

The Ruddy Skull has not yet appeared in any Devil's Square fiction to date, but will feature prominently in an upcoming Devil's Square story.

Saturday Sketch: Mango the Mighty

Here we have one of Doctor Fate's early adversaries, Mango the Mighty. Although his name doesn't exactly inspire fear, this sorcerer was murdering people with globes of fire before the Doctor finally shows up.  Mango also summons a horde of angry undead, the Legions of the Styx,  to fight for him against the Doctor but in the end he loses.  Of course.

From the Archives: Paperclip Bird

Here's an older sketch of a creepy bird thing.  I've always found it especially disturbing when inanimate objects start moving around of their own volition.

Saturday Sketch: Golden Age Nabu

Here we have the ancient Egyptian Lord of Order, Nabu the Wise, as he appeared in Doctor Fate's Origin in More Fun Comics #67.  I've always been fascinated by the symbiotic relationship between Nabu and Kent Nelson as the Doctor.

From the Archives: Naga

I've always been disturbed by snake creatures with humanoid heads.  I think at the time I drew this that I may have had something more complex in mind, but it never went any further than this.
