When popular comedian Conan O'brien, during his show, met with the renowned comic artist Bruce Timm, the clash of two great minds resulted in the creation of Conan's alter-ego: The Flaming C. A hero crime fighter created jokingly, wearing a steaming ovenmit, a jai alai glove, ski goggles, a Star of David belt buckle, socks with garters, fishnet stockings and loafers. In the months to follow, it would come as a surprise to everyone, even Conan himself, to see his alter-ego reproduced in a faux animated video by Warner Bros, and ultimately, a life-sized version was made by professionally certified lego artist Nathan Sawaya.
The artist's comment:
"The brick version of Conan O’Brien’s alter comic ego, the Flaming C, was well received by Conan and the rest of San Diego Comic-Con. TeamCoco put together an entire art gallery of the fine art of the Flaming C. It was quite the popular attraction, and I was very excited to have the big brick version in the front window. Conan also enjoyed the opportunity to make fun of me. Who doesn’t?"
