Making a Splash: Joe Staton's E-Man

Ol' Groove's in the mood to enjoy a look at Joe Staton's Groovy Age E-Man splashes, Groove-ophiles. Hope you are, too!

E-Man #2

E-Man #5

E-Man #9

Charlton Bullseye #4
Yeah, most of these are actually title pages instead of splashes, but who cares? Aren't they the ginchiest?


  1. Hey big bopper! Eman was a go to for me when I got tired of The Big Two! Staton is doing Dick Tracy now in the Sunday funny papers if interested!

  2. You can't go wrong starting a Friday with Charlton E-Man art. This is my favorite Joe Station art of his career. It was so uninhibited, inventive, just flowing across the page freestyle; enhanced greatly by his helium balloon lettering. Under his masterful hand Nova was one hot chick, sizzling up the 70s.

  3. Love the Plastic Man cameo.
