Classic Collectibles of the Day!
Here's four really cool-looking board games... well, at least the box art looks cool (you never can tell about the game boards).
I'm guessing that the Superman, Popeye and Batman game boxes weren't drawn by people who worked on those features. The Superman game doesn't use the official logo, and I'm guessing the Superman figure was traced from a Curt Swan drawing, with the rest done by whoever did the tracing.
The art on the Popeye box is pretty close... but geez, who decided that Bluto/Brutus would fly off in the direction the art shows? I'd almost guess the figures were traced from existing art, but again, the tracer didn't think about the overall composition.
Nothing to point out about the "My Favorite Martian" game... but look at the Batman box... Robin's costume is colored almost entirely wrong... and doesn't it look like he's flying??? And who's Batman supposed to be swinging his fists at? The Joker's driving towards him from a completely different direction!
