This isn't my art, but I thought it would be fun to share.
Looking through some of my old stuff I found this little gem of a Mego toy...SHAZAM!!!
(Actually he's Captain Marvel, but due to Marvel Comics holding the rights to the name "Captain Marvel", he's been called "Shazam!" by DC Comics who have owned the rights to this Fawcett character since the early 1970's)
I loved Mego toys when I was a kid in the 70's. It never occurred to me the hand positioning of this particular model. Now Looking at Shazam, I can almost hear the designers of this toy laughing when they first looked upon their final product.
