Image Hosted by ImageShack.usThanks to Hisham Zubi over at The Great Curve, I have discovered that author Michael Chabon and I had something in common growing up: we both had a thing for Mrs. Miracle, Big Barda. This I know because Chabon wrote a great essay about it recently, which can be read here. At left is Mrs. Barda Free as lovingly rendered by her creator, the one and only Jack Kirby, in an early issue of Mr. Miracle. Also, below are two thumbnails of renderings of Barda by Craig Rousseau, which I've liked ever since I first laid eyes on them but haven't had a reason to post them for you until now.

Click on the thumbs to see them full size. You should all know the drill by now.
