I was noticing how the BOX art
is better than the model...sometimes the sculpt is
very different!
-Bill




I always thought the very same thing! But then again..the great William Campbell drew most of the art but didn't sculpt the models I believe..... Buddy

That is correct. And the sculpts aren't nearly up to the quality of William Campbell's drawings.

That's a William Campbell original? Wow! Tell us more! How and where did you get it?

It's that comic convertion connection thing again........Mr. Campbell was at a K C ComicCon..........he brought paintings and prints for a showcase-of-his-work room at the con.........I got to know him.........did a taped interview with him......and near the end of the con he gave me this original. Corresponded with him for several years, but lost touch.    Buddy

Mr. Campbell is a super guy.....I showed the original in a UMA thread some time ago. Afterwards, Mr. Campbell's daughter contacted me through the UMA. I wrote back, but never received a reply........Buddy

Interesting that Fleer chose to picture Wade A. Minut on the Weird-Ohs gum cards wrapper even though the character seems to be far from everybody's favourite Weird-Oh.
