2013 Doug Wright Awards All-Star All-Canadian art auction
This charmingly hilarious piece of original art features Doctor Thaddeus Bodog Sivana, arch-nemesis of the “Big Red Cheese”, Capt. Marvel. Made famous by co-creator CC Beck, this version is drawn by Canadian cartoonist David Collier. What fun to see Collier bring his low-key, studiously observational style to this melodramatic master of mayhem —and strolling through Toronto’s Liberty Village neighbourhood, no less !!
