Title: Comic Art Appreciation
Post by: Chris on May 05, 2014, 03:46:14 PM
By now everyone has seen this cover:

(There's something wrong with this image by the way.  Can you spot it?)

In an effort to expand everyone's comic book appreciation horizons, please post links to comic art you like.  It can be covers, sketches, whatever.  The idea here is to give new people a place to start and veterans new ideas in what to collect.  It can be stuff people have seen a million times or new stuff that is new to most.  The comic book database is a good place for covers:  www.comicbookdb.com

I'll go first.  Here is an image of Black Widow by J. Scott Campbell.  I love the way he captured the Iron Man 2 head tilt from the movie:

Is that a UK cover? 15p?

Yup, that's part of it.  There's a difference between the UK and US versions.

I could start posting a boatload, but I'll just pop up one of my faves.

Walt Simonson's run on Thor is one of the best runs in comics (IMHO) and the introduction of Beta Ray Bill was a great story.

This cover is really neat, not just cause of how he draws, but that he also involved the title bar and such in the image...the "breaking" of the letters and all that.  It's one of my fave covers all around.  So much so I got it CGC graded :)  Enjoy. - M

James Jean did the art for a lot of Fables covers.  I will own one of his paintings someday.

I may be bias, but I LOVE pretty much anything Dave Stevens has ever done. He had such a passion for art and it showed. I miss him dearly. If you are unfamiliar with his work, please Google him. He's known for the Rocketeer, though he's done so much more. The colors, the lines, brilliant man!

Ugh....I can't figure out how to post a photo.....grrrrrr!!!!

Little more on the dark side, but I really like Jenny Frison, especially her covers for the Revival series.

Here is one of my favs from a different title:

You can just cut and paste the URL address of a picture you've found online, so it will basically show up as a link in your post.

Or, you can use the image tags:
[ img]place the URL address of the image here[ /img]

Remove the spaces.

Hope that helps! ^__^/

His run on Detective Comics was good, but his Batwoman stuff is utterly awesome!  Time to pick up some issues or the graphic novel!

His is right on the line where I am still ok with it, but my opinion is that they need to bring the inkers back to comics.  Some modern stuff is way under-inked in my opinion.

I have a hard time making out panels!  Ultimates 3 #1 was so dark with all the K tones to make up for the lack of inking.

I was ok with Ultimates.  I only recently got them and loved the artwork. 

There was some other book that I was reading recently where I was dying for an inker--the art felt like I was looking thru a fogged lens.  Can't remember what it was.

The great Marc Silvestri.

What was it Mozart said?  "All the notes are there, I just have to put them in the right order?"

This art screams: "All the lines are there, I just have to put them in the right order." 

Also, of all the artists I have met, Marc is by FAR the nicest out of all of them.  I mean, it's not even close how much nicer he is than, well, everyone else on the planet.

Since I finally figured out how to post a photo, here's a cover by Dave Stevens. I picked this one specifically because I had the honor to watch him draw and paint, though I was more of a distraction at times. ;)

When he got it back from the printers, he had a cow on the colors. He was never happy with this, though I think it looks great. But I don't have the eye for color as he did. Pretty much everything that came from the printers, he questioned. That was his thang. I miss him so much.

Go check out his work. He was amazing.

Great issue, art, and storyline.

I love the opening to issue 275:  "Stan Lee proudly presents a rootin' tootin', rip snorting, sci-fi, high adventure, double feature."

275 is a phenomenal issue!  I bought two. 

Here is the drool worthy spread for 277:

I really would like to encourage people to post to this thread with comic art.  It can be anything:

--Cover art
--Interior art
--Pencil work
--Inked work
--Finished art
--Sketches (either from the interweb or ones you have gotten from artists)
--Anything as long as it is comic related.

The purpose of this thread is to expose people to comic art to generate interest in comic art to new readers and show veterans art that they might have missed.

I have been collecting comics for decades and there is always new and old stuff that is interesting and fun to look at. 

With my posts, I have been trying to post more obscure stuff that even the veterans might not have seen.

i found this today. while it's not my usual type of art... i gotta say i do like it

ooooooh i loved this series... its a little dark but its variations of fairy tales with this little doll telling each story.  I really liked the red riding hood and beauty & the beast versions; the little mermaid one is kinda Lovecraftian to me so it might not fit all tastes.

Wow that is pricey, but what a great piece! I think the price is so high because it is such an iconic piece of Silver Surfer art.

This one is $5-10 I think.  So if you buy both, it averages out to $1,255 each?  Does that help?

it's a IDW Artist edition full sized at 11x17 ish with 144 pages... i've sent an email to idw for a more complete idea of which covers are included.

The offered Double Page Splash features a space scene including the fan favorite DC hero, Adam Strange. Ron Lim is probably best known for his work on Infinity Gauntlet and his Marvel work on Silver Surfer, this 2008 splash from Rann/Thanagar: Holy War is a great example of the artist's work with complimentary inks by Rob Hunter. The art has an image area of approximately 20" x 15".

HULK #4 PAGE 1 TITLE SPLASH
Item description: 2008
Primary Artist Name: ED MCGUINNESS
Secondary Artist Name: DEXTER VINES
Year: 2008
Current Bid: $202

ComicLink Comments:
This incredible Watcher Splash was published in the pages of Hulk and features the largest full figure image of the Watcher that would feasibly fit on a standard sized board! This is a great piece of original art for the Marvel fan and collector that appreciates the dynamic work of the McGuinness/Vines creative team. Ed McGuinness is known for his action packed, stylized depictions of Marvel's and DC's top tier titles. His pencil work combined with his preferred inker, Dexter Vines, have been a fan favorite with comic readers since the the 1990s. McGuinness has earned a wide reaching collector following and his splash & cover art is extremely desirable to modern collectors. The art has an image area of approximately 10" x 15".

Just a reminder to folks that this thread is for ANY comic art:

--Covers
--Interior art
--Pencils only
--Inks only
--Finished art
--Convention sketches
--Commisions
--Basically anything that will expose people to more comic art that they would maybe not see otherwise.  So post away!  :)

So along those lines--Kenneth Rocafort:

That bear scares me.  If you don't have them, this is a 3 part story arc New Mutants 18-20.  I think he did issues 18-35 in total.  These should be easy to find online for $1 each.

Yup.  I was trying to find online a Thor hammer and anvil sequence page he did that was brilliant, but my google-fu was weak.

One more for Sinkowitz (or however you spell his name).  The ad campaign for his run on NM:

be careful when buying art from art dealers, even the ones who officially represent the artists.

I bought some art from Ivan Reis a few years back for $80-$100 each and his old rep Spencer Beck (http://www.theartistschoice.com/) came up and thumbed through all of the pages Ivan had and was just throwing huge numbers of what he'd charge for them which had Ivan blown away.

Now Spencer's prices aren't super horrible but I've always found it to be cheaper to buy direct from the artists either at cons or through email since they don't have to pay a middle man that way.

a great example I saw was batman artist David Finch was doing blank cover for $75 a pop, you supply the book he draws a cool cover for it, how orginal is that
my best find I got a show was I bout a Pitt #1 for a $1 at a show, when I opened it to look at it the backing board was a Sam Keith sketch, what a find, he was at the show and he confirmed it was his work and signed the back of the sketch and signed my book

Joe Mad ... I both love and hate that guy.  He's uber talented and created one of the greatest comics in the 90s, Battle Chasers and then ... stopped.  Hate him for that. 

Just saw an announcement that Battle Chasers comics and video games are in the works.   Would have included a link, but work is blocking them.

a little off topic

i told Chris c. he was going to get introduced to my folks but they are cool so don't sweat it- they're artist etc. 
Chris said 'great, i'll ask them how to do hands'
I paused & replied they're not that kind of artist....

so by way of a visual explanation, here's an example of my dad's latest

I also see a silhouette of Elvis (or someone dressed as Elvis) in the middle of the "Blue Panther."  Kind of looks like he's standing with an arm on his waist, ha ha.

Where'd Pyramid go?  I wanna see his reaction to this news...   :P

Right here!  :)   I hope BCs picks up where it left off!  Joe has said that they may rework the material in 3 issue arcs.  It doesn't seem like he'll be getting an inker which really disappoints me.  Still, his Wolverine stuff was very exciting ... when it hit the shelves.  Mad doesn't have the best track record.

For keykeykey books like that.  I will put it in a bag with 10 boards.  It's like a  2x4 at that point.  :)

I also will buy a beat up copy (that one is still $10 when it is beat to snot) or the trade that has the key books.

Never saw it but I want to.  The comic had a cult following.  Ultimately, low sales led to cancellation.  I'm not sure if even IDW is still publishing it.

Early Maxx:

I've been trying to find one of his with Robin in the foreground and the Joker in the background.  I think there's snow.

Update:  This one:

And @##%!!!    Now I realize why I couldn't find it--its a trade.  Wasted so much time looking for that stoopid book.

Ohhhhh, I really like that cover!

Weapon X was so influential.  It set the tone for Wolverine for decade.  It was definitely the highpoint of his career.  I recommend Rune if you get a chance.  It will be hard to come by as it was an Ultraverse title which Marvel bought and then cancelled.  Boooo.

It's my favorite Silver Surfer issue. In my first year of film school we used Bell & Howell 16 mm manual cameras. Our final project was a 4-5 minute silent film. It was around the time No Country for Old Men came out. My story was about a hitman (my cousin acted) who walks around in a black suit and aviators with a massive rifle across Toronto to steal heroin from a drug dealer. At the end he shoots up and starts reading that particular Silver Surfer comic and has a deluded psycho-religious experience. 

(In the issue, when Galactus returns Norrin's soul to its original state, there are great panels of him drowning in the blood of the billions who died as a result of his time as herald.)

So, I basically shot extreme close-ups of the panels, and then shot my cousin in the same poses and angles on a prayer mat, and juxtaposed them in the final edit.

Good times.

No problem, I don't need much of an excuse to flip through the book again.
There are 4 sections, hopefully these come through, the text is a little hard to photograph.

The artwork for that limited series is as good as it gets.  The story is a bit muddled in my opinion.  It's worth getting just to stare at the pretty pictures.

Here's a quick guide:

Find an image online.  Or, if the image is on your computer, upload it to an image-hosting website like photobucket or imageshack.  Get the URL address.  Then, use the image tags to show it in a post.

[ img]URL of the image here[/ img]
(Remove the spaces in front of "img" in the tag, and you will be able to post images.)

Hope that helps!
Title: Re: Comic Art Appreciation

to add to what zero said, if you find an image online, right click & select 'copy image address' then put that between the tags

On Saturday, my family and I went to Flying Color Comics in Walnut Creek and met Arthur Adams.  Great guy.  Very friendly.  Signed everything we had and let us take a pic.  I have to say that it was such a different interaction than at SDCC.  It's no surprise though, at SDCC he has 1000s of people making demands on his time ... it's a stressful event.  Anyway really enjoyed meeting him.

I love that Thor...

Quick kinda related story...I hung out at the end of 2015 NYCC for the Charity Auction, in the hopes of picking up something really cool.  Part of the line-up had not one, but two Walt Simonson original sketches of Thor, so I'm thinking I got a shot, sure...

Holy [email protected]#$% did the bidding skyrocket!  Way, way, waaaaaaaaaaay outta what I had originally budgeted...it was a learning experience for me as it relates to purchasing artwork of this nature in that type of venue..was exciting watching the bidding go so high so quick, but man was I bummed...

***** Update: Found the sketch *****

$1,500?

yeah- i've yet to go to a charity auction at con--- they scare me ;)  it's hard enough doing online autions-  i had my eye on a Moon knight a few years ago by Steinwick(?sp) full page- amazing piece- I was going to top bid $6-800- i think it ended up at $2,200....LOL!!

i also was looking at a Thanos by Starlin pin-up this auction--- i think it ended up at $220 but all in all, i am happy with with the comics and art this auction- they seem to end up at the low end of what i think their value is. 

I figure if i go for names doing classics i can't go too wrong ;)

that thor was $81

I hear you.  I went to Fanime con several years back and for a special charity auction to raise money to support victims in the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake, I saw a piece go for $15,000.  One man bidding against half a dozen staffers who were pooling their money together to get this one piece.  It was insane.  Several other pieces went by hundreds to couple thousand each.  Its the only time I've ever really tried participating in one of these.  It's its own brand of crazy (more so than comic fans already are).

Sometimes I'll read something and be floored by it, but years later if I go back to it I'm just "meh." Recently picked Darwyn Cooke and Dave Stewarts "DC: The New Frontier" Deluxe Edition and was happy to find that my favorite sequence of panels was every bit as as great as I remembered it. John Cloud, the last of the Losers, diving into the mouth of a T Rex while holding two active grenades.

Even better, in Darwyn Cooke's notes, he says "The best four pages of American comics I will ever do. Just ask me, I'll tell you. Oh ... and it's no mistake that NF's first bona fide hero is a Native American."

That's what they did for the Batman animated series:  instead of drawing on white paper, they drew on black paper to give it a darker feel.

That show was so frickin good.

where did you find it for $99?  i've only found it for $135- Plus the suggested retail price isn't even listed yet... I'm thinking the SR price will be $150 & locking in at $99 is a good idea. as long as shipping isn't stupid expensive.

I recently discovered Coipel, Immonen, and Pichelli.  They are all great with some similar style aspects in my opinion.  Love Coipel's X-Men (Women) #1 cover and interiors.

Any Simone Bianchi fans out there?  Check out Wolvie 311.

Same.  I am a big James Stokoe fan.  He has a new book coming out - Aliens.  :)  Here's a pic:  (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fcomicsalliance.com%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2Faliens1-cover.jpg%3Fw%3D630%26amp%3Bh%3D968%26amp%3Bzc%3D1%26amp%3Bs%3D0%26amp%3Ba%3Dt%26amp%3Bq%3D89&hash=084bbdb8b6f0b3b21ad94becaae5cddb2426e6c2)

Loved Stokoe's Godzilla stuff for IDW, Aliens is a great choice for him. I haven't looked at Wonton Soup in some time, but I can't seem to find it.

I am definitely in the camp of people that didn't get Sienkiewicz at first. At one convention I saw him at he had a stack of drawings that you could just go through, some amazing portraits. (Then he went to do a panel and just left some $100K or more of work just sitting there on his table.)

This is from the Locust Moon Little Nemo kickstarter, some "behind the scenes" of his contribution to the project.

At comic con, Adam Hughes wife Allison Sohn who is also an artist said, "If you want to learn how to draw hands, look at Alan Davis' work."

My first comment to her was, "Not your husband's work?  He's sitting right there.  ::points:: And he can hear you.".  :)

My long term reaction is:  Whenever is read Alan Davis' work, I spend the whole time looking at everyone's hands.

His Godzilla work is also phenomenal!  If you get a chance try to track down the Kickstarter book he did, Sullivan's Sluggers!  It's great as well!  Here's a pic:  (https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/S/cmx-images-prod/Item/27245/JUN100400_1._SX400_QL80_TTD_.jpg)

Welcome back!

http://www.cbr.com/exclusive-marvel-resurrxion-xmen-corner-box-art/

Quote
When ResurrXion hits Marvel Comics in April, not only will the publisher’s X-Men line be revamped and expanded, every one of the mutant-led titles will find its cover graced by the return of the corner box art.

Now, this isn’t the corner box art of old. Artist Leonard Kirk and colorist Michael Garland have updated the classic rectangle to fit nicely in each title’s new X-icon, situated right behind the logo or, in some cases, as part of the logo.

A staple of comic book companies for decades, Marvel Comics took the idea of corner box artwork to new heights, using the small piece of cover real estate to add jokes, tease secrets and just generally add some additional character to its covers. In time, the rectangle, usually located in the upper-left corner of the cover, became an iconic aspect of Marvel’s monthly releases. Oftentimes, it was used to give readers a shorthand roster of who they’d find inside their team books, or to show which member of the Avengers, X-Men or other team would be the focus of that issue’s story. Other times, the corner boxes would tell a (very basic) story of their own, unfolding across multiple issues. (CBR’s Brian Cronin wrote up an excellent historical look at the corner box.)

Though once ubiquitous corner box faded away, to the point where you’d now be hard pressed to find one at all on current comics, fans have long loved the uniquely comic book artwork. They remain such a popular aspect of the medium that Marvel recently launched a variant cover program in which acclaimed painter Joe Jusko has been recreating classic corner box artwork as full-sized variants. As part of the series, Jusko has reinterpreted the works of Jack Kirby, John Buscema and more. But aside from that, the corner box has remained a relic of the past - until April, that is, when Marvel will bring them back in a big way as part of the publisher’s soft-reboot of its X-Men line.

Check out the gallery below for every one of Kirk and Garlad’s new corner box designs, as well as how examples of how their art will look on the first Resurrxion issue of every X-title available in April.

http://sdcomicartgallery.com/usagi-yojimbo-2/

Quote
Usagi Yojimbo (兎用心棒 Usagi Yōjinbō, “rabbit bodyguard”) is a comic book series created by Stan Sakai. Set primarily at the beginning of the Edo period of Japanese history, the series features anthropomorphic animals replacing humans. Miyamoto Usagi, the title character, debuted in “Albedo Anthropomorphic” #2 in November 1984 from Thoughts And Images. Fantagraphics then picked up the character, appearing in “Critters” and eventually landing his own monthly series. Usagi was also published for a time by Mirage Studios, the home of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, for 16 issues until 1996 when Sakai and his series found their current home with Dark Horse Comics.

Usagi Yojimbo became a household name thanks in part to the 1980s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” cartoon and toy line. With his appearance on the cartoon and one of the most popular action figures in the line, it was only natural for the fans to discover the “Usagi Yojimbo” comic books. Not only did these characters crossover on the cartoon, but also they had multiple adventures in the comics as their worlds collided with one another, often focusing on tales of Usagi and Leonardo. As much fun as it was to read that, it was even greater to see independent comic creators bring one another along in their individual successes as Kevin Eastman & Peter Laird (TMNT Co-creators) did with Stan Sakai and vice versa.

Three publishers, 31 trade paperbacks, over 160 issues, and 5 Eisner awards later, it would seem Usagi’s still going strong and is more popular than ever. 2017 is going to be a BIG year for “Usagi Yojimbo” — Miyamoto Usagi will guest star in 3 episodes of Nickelodeon’s “Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” animated series, voiced by John Boyega of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. Along with that, he’ll see 5 action figures from Playmates, his first in 13 years! The big news, though — Stan Sakai will be writing AND drawing an ALL NEW “Usagi Yojimbo/TMNT” one shot from IDW Publishing! No matter what your calendar tells you, 2017 is definitely looking like the Year Of The Rabbit

The “Usagi Yojimbo” exhibit will be running from April 20th in to late June.
Title: Re: Comic Art Appreciation
Post by: mark on April 23, 2017, 11:12:29 PM
Usagi Yojimbo is hands down one of the best comics series of all time, and all ages at that. Plus Stan Sakai is one of the nicest people in the history of, well ... people. I was at a small con years ago, at an artist's booth, going through the prints she had for sale. Stan Sakai comes up next to me and starts going through the stack as well, grabs one, gives the artist $20 and starts to walk away. She calls out to him to wait since they only cost $5 and he has change coming. He turns, bows, and politely informs her that her prints are worth much more than $5, then keeps walking away. Meanwhile I'm still standing there like an idiot, but I get to see how happy she looked. I don't think an artist could have asked for a bigger confidence builder than that. 

More recently, the Silicon Valley Comic Con featured a Usagi Yojimbo VR game which was really well done. I did the demo and got to talk to the gamemakers. Stan Sakai was very involved with the development, but in a funny way. I forget the name of the tool the used for the graphics, but apparently Stan messed around with it for a few minutes and then starting making graphics better than anything that had been made for the game so far, so a good bit of his artwork ended up in the game, much to the delightment and frustration of all.

He's great. Have you checked out Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E?

Also, speaking of Stokoe, I've recently just caught up on the recent Moon Knight issues, which use art from both Stokoe and  Francesco Francavilla. I don't want to say whys since it's part of the story but it's really effective.

[member=1]alyssa[/member] love the effects of the ink spill in that 2nd Ramos page. Blows my mind that people can do that with one color on a flat page.

Bought this at SVCC from Ron Wilson, had not met him before, very cool guy. He has been announced for SDCC and had a lot of stuff at pretty reasonable prices.

(https://comiccondad.files.wordpress.com/2017/04/20170428_172049.jpg)

If you look closely you can see a pencil sketch of Galactus in the background. There is also some white ink at various places on the Surfer that will catch the light at certain angles, I didn't realize that until I got it home. A lot of his drawings had stuff like that, for example a Hulk drawing I was thinking about buying had some light Thor pencils on the flip side. He had an insane Black Panther drawing, but I didn;t buy it right away and when I went back someone else had snagged it.

I'm thinking about redoing one of the cave walls with original art and drawings like this of the same size. Need to find a decent frame that I can get a bunch of. Want a step up from the Michael's ones, but all of the nice frames I have are from garage sales and thrift shops so none of them ever match.

Looks good, thanks! There's a store fairly close that stocks them so I can check them out. I went too cheap before with the lower end plastic frames from Michaels and some (really cheap) ones from ikea that work ok for comics. But I like to swap them out from time to time and they are not holding up at all.

Kirby!!!

From https://www.comic-con.org/toucan/dilettante-047-early-kirby-exposures

Quote
This August will be the 100th anniversary of the birth of Jack Kirby. My main exposure to Kirby's work was through a small pile of comics and reprint books I acquired as a child. Most of them were torn, coverless and incomplete, and I read them over and over until they were as fragile as moth wings.

With the exception of a few stories reprinted in Stan Lee's Origins of Marvel Comics collection, I rarely had any sort of context for the Kirby stories I encountered. I could only buy comics at thrift stores and flea markets, so I almost never read two issues in a row of anything. If a story was "to be continued," I'd just have to guess what happened next. If the comic featured "part two," I only had a bit of recap to tell me what had happened in part one. Not a fair way to encounter an artist's work when they're often telling serialized stories.

Nevertheless, I was always drawn into the slices of Kirby's stories I could get my hands on. I was fascinated by the action, the imagery, the mythic feel of larger-than-life conflicts. I was also a little scared by some of it. Most of the comics I read were friendly and inviting, full of pictures composed to convey a sense of sports-hero athleticism and television glamour. Kirby's work served up a different menu: his characters didn't look or behave like those in other comics. They seemed like they were formed out of granite, or hard rubber, or cooling lava. They stomped and leapt with wild, explosive movements and contorted themselves into agonizing shapes. They paused to pose like roman statues and deliver soliloquies, then relaxed and kidded around with each other like my friends at school did.

I thought it might be worthwhile to take a close look at some panels I remember from back then, analyze them with what an eye for what I've learned about comics storytelling, and try to recall the impact they had on me when I first saw them as a pre-teen.

https://icv2.com/articles/news/view/37554/new-record-price-american-comic-art

Quote
A piece of original art by Robert Crumb has been sold at a record price for a piece of American comic art by Heritage Auctions.  Crumb’s cover art for the Ballantine Fritz the Cat collection from 1969 sold for $717,000.  That narrowly tops the old top price for a piece of American comic art, $657,250 for the final page of Incredible Hulk #180, the first appearance of Wolverine, by Herb Trimpe and Jack Abel (see “Comic Art Page Sells for $657,250”).  A Frank Miller page sold for nearly $450,000 in 2011 (see “Miller Page Goes for $448,125”).

The record price for a piece of comic art anywhere in the world is still over $3.5 million for the flyleaves/end pages for the Adventures of Tintin albums, by Herge (see “Comic Art Sells for $3.5 Million”).  Two other pieces of Tintin art have sold for over $1 million (see “Original Comic Art for Over $1 Million”).

The art is 11” x 12.5” and was from the Felix Dennis Estate. Fritz the Cat was one of Crumb’s earliest characters, and the subject of two animated features in the early 70s.  It's a sign of how much the world has changed that this piece of comic art, a cover for a collection of underground comics that were on the fringe of pop culture at the time, is now the most prized piece of American comic art ever sold.

GET READY FOR COMIC-CON 2017! Comic-Con Celebrates the Jack Kirby Centennial with an Exclusive Souvenir Book Cover by Bruce Timm!

Just about everyone who’s seen a Marvel movie since 2000 has seen a creation or co-creation of Jack Kirby. Kirby was born in 1917 and had an amazing career in comic books from the late 1930s up until the time of his death in 1994. X-Men, the Avengers, Fantastic Four, Thor, the Incredible Hulk, and Captain America are just some of the characters co-created by Kirby (with either Stan Lee or, in the case of Cap, Joe Simon). His impact on the superhero comics industry is monumental. His recognition as the “King of Comics” couldn’t be more appropriate.

2017 marks the centennial of Kirby’s birth and we’re celebrating it at Comic-Con 2017 with a number of panels and a special section in this year’s Souvenir Book. Kirby is in the spotlight on the cover of this year’s book, illustrated by fan-favorite artist and producer, Bruce Timm, who is a guest at Comic-Con 2017. One of the creators behind Batman: The Animated Series and numerous other Warner Bros. Animation/DC Universe animated films and TV shows, Timm has also done work in comics, including covers and the Eisner Award-winning one-shot, Batman Adventures: Mad Love, featuring Harley Quinn, his co-creation (with writer/producer Paul Dini, another Comic-Con 2017 guest). Multi-Eisner Award winner Todd Klein provided the lettering and compositing of this year’s cover, which is an homage to Kirby via the artist’s famous cover for Superman’s Pal: Jimmy Olsen #141, which featured comedian Don Rickles (see below for a comparison of the two covers).

The Comic-Con International 2017 Souvenir Book is given free to all attendees (while supplies last). It’s a keepsake, full-color, trade paperback. This year’s edition weighs in at 272 pages, making it the largest book ever produced for the event. In addition to an extended section celebrating the Jack Kirby Centennial, there’s a section on the Will Eisner Centennial, articles saluting other comics creators with special anniversaries in 2017, plus the 75th anniversaries of Crime Does Not Pay and Mighty Mouse; the 50th anniversaries of Batgirl and Marvel’s Captain Marvel; and the 25th anniversaries of Batman: The Animated Series and Image Comics.

More later on this website about how to get your copy onsite and all the other Comic-Con publications to look for at this year’s show!

(Special thanks to DC Comics and MARVEL for their permission to utilize some of Kirby’s greatest creations and co-creations side-by-side in this tribute to the King.)

Appreciating the process of comic art creation:

From http://www.comicon.com/2017/06/02/the-stunning-samurai-art-of-victor-santos-in-process-for-rashomon/

Quote
Victor Santos (Polar, Violent Love) has a new graphic novel coming in October from Dark Horse that is an opportunity for English-speaking audiences to get a dose of his rather electrifying artwork for the first time on Rashomon. The new book consists of two installments of a noir mystery set in Japan during the time of the samurai, the first of which was originally published in Santos’ native Spanish, but is now being translated for the first time, and the second installment of which is currently appearing in Europe. Here we get both tales in one volume, rendered in English with new cover artwork and plenty of extras and process pieces, for which Santos is known.

Rashomon begins with the body of a samurai found on the road to Yamashina in feudal Japan, and the story encompasses the search for his killer. Detective Heigo Kobayashi takes the case but finds only “dead-end clues” and no direct witnesses. In this book, Santos’ predilection for noir and filmic elements takes flight, inspired by Ryunosuke Akutagawa’s tales featuring the heroic commissioner Heigo Kobayashi.

Victor Santos has kindly shared some process art with us today on Comicon.com. Here’s our look at his process in developing the cover for Rashomon:

Found this while trying to figure out what the poster would be in the IDW Star Trek box. This is not from a comic, rather conceptual art from J.K. Woodward but posting it anyway since there's quite a lot of story in this one picture.

herocomplexgallery It is with huge sadness and our love for our good artist friend, AJ Frena, that we have to report that she has received some bad news. AJ was admitted to the hospital in late April after a massive growth was discovered, and within a few days went through surgery to remove two malignant tumors that had been growing inside her for more than 6 months. Within a week AJ was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and has been going through chemotherapy treatments since.

Fortunately, the cancer was detected in its earlier stages which greatly increases AJ's chances, but it will still be a long uphill battle for her to beat the cancer for good. The treatment will involve 6 total rounds of chemotherapy, which is a very effective cancer treatment, but with many negative side effects. AJ is up for the fight though!

And so are we...as soon as we heard the news we spoke with fellow artist, Craig Drake, with the idea of creating a print to help AJ's cause. We decided to focus on one of his favorite characters, Trinity, because Trinity is a fighter just like AJ. 100% of proceeds from this sale will benefit AJ.

Please join AJ with us in her battle against cancer by either purchasing this Trinity II benefit print or by making a direct donation to her Go Fund Me campaign, to help support AJ and her family through this difficult time. Any amount would be greatly appreciated, no matter how big or small. Let's help AJ kick cancer's ass!

Quote
Jack Kirby would have been 100 years old today. The visionary comics writer/artist was born Jacob Kurtzberg on August 28, 1917 and died on February 6, 1994. If you’ve seen a Marvel Studios movie in the last decade, Jack Kirby more than likely had a major hand in the creation of the characters. From Captain America to the X-Men, from Thor to the Black Panther, Kirby co-created or created a plethora of characters for many publishers, including Marvel and DC Comics. He also, along with partner Joe Simon, created completely new genres such as romance comics. His 50-year career in comics spanned from before World War II into the 1990s. Kirby and his ever-patient wife, Roz, were huge parts of Comic-Con each year until his death.

Comic-Con saluted the centennial of Kirby’s birth at the 2017 show, including a huge section in our yearly Souvenir Book (cover shown at left, with art by Bruce Timm, saluting one of Jack’s most famous covers for Jimmy Olsen #141), which is usually available only to Comic-Con attendees. Today, on Jack’s 100th birthday, we’re pleased to offer that 60-page section as a PDF online for everyone to enjoy. Filled with articles and art by Kirby fans and pros alike, the section covers Jack’s life and career in the medium he loved and gave so much to.

This special section includes feature articles by:

    Randolph Hoppe (Jack Kirby Museum and Research Center)
    Douglas Wolk (Reading Comics: How Graphic Novels Work and What They Mean)
    Scott Dunbier (Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four: World’s Greatest Artist’s Edition)
    John Morrow (Kirby100, The Jack Kirby Collector magazine)
    Scarlet Karimian (“Krazy for Kirby: Jack Kirby in the 1970s”)
    Mark Evanier (Kirby: King of Comics)
    Charles Hatfield (Hand of Fire: The Art of Jack Kirby)

Plus tributes and reminiscences by the Kirby Family (son Neal, daughter Lisa, and grandchildren Jillian, Jeremy, and Tracy); Mike Royer, Steve Sherman, Kevin Eastman, Joe Sinnott, Jimmy Palmiotti, Bill Schelly, Paul Levitz, John Morrow, Dan Didio, and Maggie Thompson. And some great fan art devoted to the memorable characters created by Kirby.

Happy birthday, King … Comics wouldn’t be the same without you!

This new 60-page version contains no ads and has an additional 2 pages of rare Kirby Comic-Con Program Book art from the 1970s! (Please note: Due to size restrictions, this PDF is best viewed on a computer screen and not designed to be printed.)

I have to say it worries me... having bought art from different dealers over the years-... and the fact that obviously forged Liefield art was certified by PGX is outright disturbing.

there's pleanty of pic's of forgery vs real for comparison.

i guess the take away is know the artist you're buying- I got a Silver surfer Lim & while i'm not questioning it (because it looks right)... i will be a **lot** more careful next time

Yeah but now I'm going to the other end of the extreme...what about when you wanna get a book signed and you give it to a 3rd party service that does that stuff for you and then gets it graded?  Who says that that signature is really the artist's?  The implications of this can be pretty huge...

Returning February 2018 The San Diego Comic Art Gallery is undergoing some changes. We will reopen February 2nd for NTC's First Friday!

https://www.newsarama.com/38121-idw-s-art-gallery-closes-retail-storefront-loses-manager.html

Quote
IDW Publishing has temporarily closed its San Diego Comic Art Gallery as part of broad changes to the two-year-old gallery. Founding gallery manager TJ Shevlin exited the company earlier this month, and IDW removed the retail storefront component of the gallery.  A source familiar with the situation calls it a "transitional period" for the gallery.

IDW's San Diego Comic Art Gallery first opened in June 2015, coinciding with the company's move to its new headwarters at Liberty Station's former Navy Barracks. In its two years, it hosted numerous exhibits with the work of Kevin Eastman, Howard Chaykin, and Ben Templesmith, and fostered local community events as well as tie-in events concurrent with Comic-Con International: San Diego.

IDW anticipates re-opening the gallery sometime in February 2018.

San Diego Comic Fest would like to congratulate our good friend TJ Shevlin for concluding his amazing 3-year run as Manager of the San Diego Comic Art Gallery. He brought every bit of his passion for comics to this role, forging a great community for fans, wonderful events with schools and local scientific institutions.

For anyone lucky enough to swing inside the gallery they would always get an enthusiastic and informative talk from this guru of comics. He has been a great friend to San Diego Comic Fest speaking on lectures for several years and more importantly a part of our community.

Thank you so much, TJ. We wish you the best in the future.

Awwww, TJ is AWESOME!!  I was just in there a few weekends ago (sometime after Christmas) and my son and I (mostly my son) had a loooooooong talk about Transformers.  He's always been incredibly knowledgeable and super nice and helpful.  He mentioned that he was moving some of his personal stuff out in the near future (the Transformers toy display case was all his personal collection, for example) but he didn't mention he was leaving.

The closure/revamp explains why it was 'unexpectedly' closed last Saturday afternoon.  My son had turned 16 that day and was hyped to go down there, only to be bummed that it closed.  I hope when it reopens it continues its great exhibits

Not sure if this is the best place to post this but Titan has a pretty cool book coming out this summer. Previously unreleased art by Kirby and Gil Kane based on The Prisoner tv series which is having its 50th anniversary.

Up on amazon and B&N for preorder, $80 is steep for only 64 pages but new Kane and new Kirby ...

jamiesullivanillustration Some commissions I've done and a piece I did on a whim have turned into a full fledged cover. Let me know what you think. Hopefully you can see the fine lines in the background. As you may or may not know, I usually have a whole backstory planned out for what's going on in a cover I do. Well...

Here's the premise:
"GI Joe has stormed a COBRA stronghold and captured it. Snake-Eyes and a small group of other Joes make their way through the interior 'cleaning up'. As Snake crosses the gangway between the turrets, Skystrikers pass overhead. Using the noise from the jets as cover, Storm Shadow makes his move"

I used pencil, india ink, copics, white gel, sharpie and white out on 24x16 kid finish bristol board. I hope you enjoy it!

sdcomicfest On this day 25 years ago, Jack Kirby passed away at age 77.

After spending his life creating worlds that inspired countless people, the King of Comics was gone. But even in death, Jack is more alive than ever.

It is almost impossible to walk down the street without someone wearing a shirt with one of Kirby's characters. If he wasn't your favorite artist, then he was probably your favorite artist's favorite artist. Stories are told of his kindness to the community. It is wonderful to see his name in the credits of huge blockbuster films.

Two years ago, San Diego Comic Fest celebrated the centennial of Jack Kirby. It was wonderful to hear so many people share their enthusiasm for his work. Many of his friends and collaborators shared amazing stories about their time with him.

Kirby is gone, but he will never be forgotten. His legacy is immortal.

Long live Jack Kirby, the King of Comics

I'll forever be grateful to Pat Lee and Dreamwave Productions for bringing Transformers back into comics in the early 2000's. He brought the modern look to Transformers that others have followed.I believe Hasbro even started using his artwork on the boxes of their toys.

This is more of a "help me find the art" post, but I'll share it if I can find it :)

I remember a DC comic where a bunch of villains teamed up against Superman and had him on the ropes to the point where he had to activate his emergency distress thingamajig, and then Captain Marvel (Levi not Larson) swoops in for the rescue.

I recall being impressed by the design of some of the panels but I can't for the life of me remember what story this was in. Does it sound familiar to anyone?

patrickballesteros #tbt to one of the first pieces I did when trying to discover my style. Just like Mega Man as a young artist you have to battle a lot of things when learning. The big thing is to always experiment and to never think of a bad drawing as a failure but more of an iteration on how to to get better. Stick to it, style happens over time so don’t rush or chase it. Keep on leveling up friends!

jscottcampbellart The Historic SPAWN #300 is only a couple of weeks away! Here’s a glimpse of the original concept sketch I used to pitch my cover concept to @toddmcfarlane . It’s often challenging to recapture the initial edgy and designy vibe and energy of an initial sketch! I’ll often keep these rough sketches out while drawing the final so I don’t lose sight of the more simplistic blocked out shapes and strong lines in the final, which can often turn out soft and unnecessarily detailed if you’re not careful. Swipe through to see how big this initial sketch is at the start as well as all 3 variants of the final covers, the B&W (N), the virgin (M) and the Standard tradedress (G). Todd actually suggested adding the easter eggs of the additional characters, an idea I loved! And @psteigerwaldart ‘s colors brought the entire look and feel together beautifully! And don’t forget, there’s a 9 page interior chapter by Todd, Myself and Peter!

Created and written by Brandon Easton (TRANSFORMERS: WAR FOR CYBERTRON - SIEGE, STAR TREK: YEAR FIVE, MARVEL'S AGENT CARTER). Illustrations by Andrew Griffith (IDW'S TRANSFORMERS, MICRONAUTS, G.I. JOE). DOMINION'S LIGHT is an inclusive, original and expansive story of a trio of treasure hunters swept into a global civil war when they discover a mystical artifact hunted by a power-mad sorcerer.

A Vision in the Making…

Joe Kubert is one of the visionaries of comics and popular art. From his pioneering work on characters like Hawkman, Sgt. Rock, and Tor, to his graphic novels and legacy as an educator, Joe helped to create and refine the visual language of popular, sequential art. His legacy as an artist and educator, as well as the materials in his studio, are the foundation of our collection of comics and popular arts.

The Rochester Institute of Technology is establishing a world-class library, maker space, and museum devoted to comic books and popular arts. Building from a foundational collection of Joe Kubert’s studio materials, process artwork, original art, and published work, the Kubert Library will be a one-of-kind center for the study, appreciation, and production of comic books and related arts. The Library will be a centerpiece for RIT’s Comics Studies Initiative, which includes an undergraduate comics studies curriculum, a summer arts institute for aspiring creative professionals, and rotating public exhibits, screenings, and symposia.

brandoneastonwriter This was announced on the same day that my dad passed away. It was a wild mix of emotions because it has always been a dream of mine to write Spider-Man. As a kid, Spidey was the one hero I could identify with. Spider-Man became my "gateway drug" into the world of superhero comics and my appreciation of the artform spread into anime, manga and sci-fi literature. Comic books kept me off the streets. Comic books helped me to cope with some of the rougher aspects of my childhood. Comic books helped me to keep my head together during the darkest days of my college years (and there were MANY). Comic books were there for me when my peers vanished. Even though I've had some brutal experiences in the comics industry, the good far outweighs the bad and I'm blessed to be able to create fun material with folks I've long admired. I wouldn't trade any of the friends I've made in the biz for anything in the world. I don't even know if it's appropriate to post this, but I wanted to share some of my genuine happiness about this news as I move forward in my career and in my life. So here it is: I'm writing an arc in the relaunched MARVEL ACTION SPIDER-MAN.

That's Sieniewitz?  Looks totally different. :)

I always liked the 2 tone effect that he did for the background focusing more on shape than color.

The United Nations is Looking for Creators to Help Stop the Spread of COVID-19

The United Nations’ Talenthouse art works have put out a call to help create material to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

A submission system has been opened for creators to submit work that they may help in translating and getting “critical public health messages” out to the public. It should inform people across different cultures, languages, communities, and platforms.

The submissions that work will be visible on a microsite and be made accessible to everyone who will be able to download and use the art across their platforms to support the cause.

UN key messages include:

    Personal Hygiene
    Physical Distancing
    Know the symptoms
    Kindness contagion
    Myth busting
    Do more, donate

You can find more information and make a submission at the Talenthouse website.

cwc_artist Optimus Prime wears a mask. Be like Optimus.

Wearing a cloth mask in public is an act of respect for others. It's not for protecting yourself, so you're not being tough or brave by not wearing one. If you are an asymptomatic carrier, it can prevent spread.

andyparkart My glimpse into the process series continues with this alternate rough I did as a possibility for the San Diego Comic Con poster for Ant-Man and the Wasp. Ultimately they wanted a piece that felt like a companion illustration to the SDCC poster I did for the 1st film. I’ve always been a fan of illustrated movie posters by artists I grew up admiring like @drewstruzanart so I really enjoy doing these. Oh, & I put the placeholder stuff at the bottom of the rough to show how it’ll look. I’m aware the date & website are wrong ;/

sdcomicfest If he wasn't your favorite artist then he is probably your favorite artist's favorite artist. His stories and artwork have influenced fans and creatives alike and will continue to for generations. He created icons, legends, worlds and mythologies with the stroke of a pencil and always pushed himself to be better.

He revolutionized the world of comics and many would claim he saved it a more than a handful of times. He created or co-created some of the most iconic fictional characters in history including Captain America, The Fantastic Four, The Hulk, Thor, The X-Men, NIck Fury, The Silver Surfer, The Avengers, The Eternals, The Fourth World, The Demon and countless other projects. We are always happy to celebrate these timeless tales but today we celebrate what would have been the 103rd anniversary of his birth.

From all of us at San Diego Comic Fest we wish a Happy Birthday to Jack Kirby, the King of Comics.

Quote
toddmcfarlane Spawn 311 Tribute Cover Given the limited amount of minority characters in the comic industry today that are considered major Superheroes, I thought it appropriate for one of those well-known heroes (Spawn) to pay tribute to a man who made a lasting impact on helping shape such a strong superhero of color. Chadwick Boseman is a person who honed his skills and then made a career using them. Then he fought a fight against his own body that showed the true spirit of this man. We should all admire the traits Chadwick shared with us. And the inspiration he gave to millions of children around the globe who got to see a strong, meaningful and proud hero that looked like themselves.

chrisclearmountain Apologies for the improv photo but I’m feeling like shouting from the rooftops—because my 50th Anniversary X-travicanza story (with art by Bill Sienkievicz, Sean Chen, Diego Oroltegui & Brett Booth) will be lettered by none-other than letterer supreme, Tom Orzechowski!!!!! Truly, one of the very best at what he does & here’s your chance to see why! And holy cow, it’s a self-contained story. Well, kinda. ‘Cept for the (almost) cliff-hanger ending. That’ll likely be resolved in the Celebratory Centennial! 🤫‼️😉 Finally, this sodding year has a legitimate bright-spot! Something to look forward to, my friends; bet it makes a brilliant X-Mas gift! 😆
