Some silly characters

Back when I was a disturbed teenager, I drew a comic strip for the Jersey Evening Post called The Black Propeller about a superhero whose only power was producing a propeller from inside his nose, which he could use to fly and stop bullets. The strip contained a supporting cast of equally colourful characters, including Hand-head, Sid the Atomic Kangaroo and Aardvark Man.

The characters shown here are: Tin Man (like Iron Man, but less bulletproof), Lob-Star (a seafood-themed vigilante who slaps criminals with a giant fish), and The Seal of Doom (I never worked out what his deal was, I just liked the name).
