I haven’t done an Artist Spotlight for awhile so I thought it was about time I did. I really couldn’t decide on one artist to focus on, so instead I’m spotlighting comic art for the month of December from Marvel Comics (yes, I realize this defeats the purpose of a “spotlight” but I do what I likes and I likes what I do).
Let’s start with this great image from Daredevil: Father drawn by Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. I thought it was a pretty original layout.
Next, lets move on to this cover for Marvel Zombies #1 by Arthur Suydam, an artist who I have never heard of. Suydam takes the classic cover from Amazing Fantasy that introduced Spider-Man and changes Spider-Man into… well… a zombie. I’ve seen a million takes on this cover, but I think this one might be the best.
Skottie Young draws this cover for New Warriors that is obviously a parody of the Brady Bunch tv show. I love the energy Young conveys on his characters, and I love the cartoony style he uses. This guy is perfect for comedy comics.
This next cover is from the mini-series Son of M, which spins off of the other mini-series House of M, which spun off the Avengers: Dissasembled story arc. But thats not important right now. What is important is that this is a great cover by John Watson.
And now finally I present to you the cover to Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk by Leinil Francis Yu. It just looks awesome.
