The Cyclops by Bernie Wrightson

Sometimes I see an amazing piece of art and just need to share it.  This is one of those times.  I’ve long been a fan of Bernie Wrightson‘s art and this image is so chilling.  Imagine being one of the sailors on that ship and looking up to find that Cyclops playing baseball with the forest above you.  Phew!  Bernie’s line work is gorgeous, choosing clean outlines for the ship, ocean and crags and then crosshatching and shading to bring your focus to the menace of the monster.  Beautiful.

The Uncanny X-Men by Michael Cho

I came across this super cool image of the first five X-Men (plus the Professor, natch!) a while back and had to share! You can see it colored in red on Michael Cho’s blog here.

Preview Art for Storm: Worlds Apart, Part II

More beautiful art from the upcomig Chris Yost penned Storm mini-series, thanks to Myspace Comicbooks! Be sure to check out Part I of this special preview of Storm: Worlds Apart! The interior artist wasn’t identified in the preview, so I am unable to credit them at this time. Can’t wait until we get some dialogue for the scenes between Storm and Cyclops! And check out that break-taking double spread! Gorgeous!






Worlds Apart

Preview Art for Storm: Worlds Apart, Part I

I am super-psyched for the upcomig Chris Yost penned Storm mini-series! Thanks to Myspace Comicbooks, I have some artwork to share with you, dear reader! Be sure to check out Part II of this special preview of Storm: Worlds Apart! The first three images are cover images (I recognize the first is by J. Scott Campbell & the third one is by Mike Deodato, Jr., but I’m not sure about the second one. Also, the interior artist wasn’t identified in the preview, so I am unable to credit them at this time.).




The 2nd “Wolverine & The X-Men” Trailer

Now THIS looks exciting! All of my fears about Storm being a no-show are gone and I think this may be my favorite cartoon incarnation of our lovely weather goddess ever! I dunno yet, tho. Won’t know until I hear her voice actor. And how ’bout that roundhouse kick that Shadowcat shows off after phasing through some guy? Sweet! I’m a big fan of the lineup overall, although I wish there was one more female character (maybe Rogue will eventually join?). Feels like a good blend of the original five (sorry, Jean *snif*) and the All-New, All-Different crew (sorry, Banshee *cries*). It’s also nice to see Emma Frost immortalized in cartoon form as a heroine. She had a small cameo in the very first X-Men cartoon movie “Pryde of the X-Men,” but she looked pretty bad. I mean, well, everyone did. This, however, looks amazing! I am going to have to fight for a seat at San Diego to see it!
