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!
Dwayne McDuffie and Paul Pelletier’s run on Fantastic Four was a lot of fun to read. Storm and Black Panther joined the team while Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman left to work on their marriage after Civil War. Below are two pages from that run which are notable to me because they depict a Storm sensitive to people’s perceptions about her beauty. Does it ring true to her character? Does Storm come across as being a bit vain about not wanting to be seen as vain? Is the whole situation just a gag? Let me know what you think in the comments.
