Today we celebrate the artwork of Yildiray Cinar, an artist from Istanbul, Turkey. Although Cinar works for DC Comics (currently penciling The Legion of Super-Heroes), today we look at the art of many (and I mean many) Marvel characters he drew for Rittenhouse Archives. Usually, Storm Sunday focuses solely on our weather maven (and she’s in here, I promise), but she’s going to share the spotlight with her Marvel Universe compatriots. I will list the names of the characters for the uninitiated, but comments will be sparse as we let the art speak for itself! If you have a favorite, let me know in the comments. Let’s go!
