American comic book fans probably know Goran Parlov for his work with the Punisher character. I love Parlov’s art and this is my favorite piece by him. You can see more of Goran Parlov’s art here.
THAT is one fine Wolverine drawin’ by Mike Deodato.
Deodato gets that Wolverine is short, thick, muscular, and hairy. Wolverine is the best at what he does and what he does isn’t very nice.
If you’d like to see more of Mike Deodato’s art, you can at his Instagram page.
It would be tough to find a more iconic Batman piece than the one above by Enrico Marini. You’ve got Batman on the Bat Signal surrounded by bats with Gotham City in the background.
Well played, Enrico Marini! (On another note, I am looking forward to Marini’s Noir Burlesque which comes out next month!)
Christopher Shy has created an interesting alt poster for First Blood. I like how Shy gives us insight into Rambo’s mind after learning his friend died from Agent Orange and then being harassed by Teasle. Everything around Rambo is either memories or disjointed/fractured. Well done, Christopher Shy!
Werewolf by Night was a surprise hit. Just as cool is JK Woodward’s inkwash art featuring the character… and if you look in the background you might find a guest appearance of another Marvel comics horror character! You can see more of Woodward’s art on his Twitter stream.
Laurent Carbonelle is killing it with alt posters for classic movies! How about this sweet one for Night of the Hunter? You can see more of Carnonelle’s art here.
One of my favorite noir movies is The Big Heat, directed by Fritz Lang, starring Glen Ford, Gloria Grahame, Jocelyn Brando (Marlon Brando’s sister), Lee Marvin and Carolyn Jones. This nice alt poster was created by Erik J. Kreffel. You can see more of Kreffel’s art at his website or by following his Twitter stream.
The LEAD CITY graphic novel by Eric Borden and Kyle Brummond comes out today. I bought LEAD CITY when it was first on Kickstarter. If you didn’t, here is your chance to get the complete series in a single trade paperback. The synopsis from the publisher…
A farmer enters a deadly gunfighter competition in order to save his family.
Doesn’t exactly make you want to shell out your hard-earned cash, does it? That’s too bad, because LEAD CITY is a fun story with cool art. Let’s try the write-up from Kickstarter. If LEAD CITY sounds like something you’d like, you know what to do.
Krzysztof Domaradzki created this amazing alt Rocky poster. As Mickey would say, “It’s a thing of beauty.” You can see more of Domaradzki’s awesome art at his website. I’d plan to stay awhile.
I hope you dig this alt Psycho poster by Laurent Carbonelle as much as I do. You can see more of Carnonelle’s art here.
Gary Shipman is a self taught artist and writer. Shipman has been nominated for Eisner, Harvey and Russ Manning awards. When I saw that Gary Shipman was regularly doing sketchcard (and other) commissions on WhatNot, I decided to try to get one. As you can see above from Shipman’s riff on Sly Stallone as Jack Carter, I succeeded. And he nailed it. Look for more Gary Shipman art here in the near future!
Marv from Frank Miller’s Sin City is a character I love seeing drawn by different artists. The one above was created by Richard Pace. You can see more of Pace’s art here.
Tony Stella shared this on his Twitter feed and I thought it was interesting. The bottom art by the great Robert McGinnis was used to promote James Bond in Dr. No. Compare it to the top art and you can see how it was censored prior to use. Bond is given shorts. The lady isn’t as well endowed and what she has is better covered. Also note the changes in her face. In the top art she seems to enjoy her, uh, job at hand much more. ; )
Man, John Byrne could do no wrong back in the day when he drew this Wolverine sketch. I followed every comic he did for years/decades. Loved his Fantastic Four, Superman, and others… but his work with Chris Claremont and Terry Austin on The X-Men was the best!
