Screaming Pym vs Screaming Gamora – #CoverVsCover

cover-vs-cover-ageofultron10ai

cover-vs-cover_guardiansgalaxy4

These hit comic shop shelves on the same Wednesday (I think) a couple of weeks ago.

There is a wall at Marvel where they pin up all the week’s covers to see how they display on store shelves. I’m sure more than a few comments were made about the similarity.

The cover to Age of Ultron #10 A.I. is by  Brandon Peterson.

And Guardians of the Galaxy #4 is courtesy of Sara Pichelli.

Okay, it’s the moment of truth. Vote now!

Upcycled Comics breathes new life into old comics

PowerUpCollage-BAMF

Too bad there’s no more wall space for art in my comic den at the moment. But if there was, I finally found a use for the boxes of comics I’m having a difficult time parting with and order (at least) one of these fabulous pieces from the PowerUp collection by Upcycled Comics (aka Amy Watkins).

According to her Esty page:

I love my comics too much to keep them in dusty long boxes in the closet. After I’ve read the stories and pored over the pictures, I want to enjoy my comics again, as a medium for new art. I sell original, handmade pieces–no prints here–constructed out of the amazing art of old comic books.

Best comic book tattoos inspired by Jeff Lemire

tattoo-jefflemire-tales

Cover to Tales from the Farm, one of my all-time favourite graphic novels and the first of three chapters in Essex Country trilogy. Writes the tattoo’s owner:

jefflemire-talesfromthefarmThe story is one of the most emotional and evocative stories that uses little to no dialogue. The main character, a boy named Lester is the most expressive character I have ever read. It almost brought me to tears the first time I read it.

Birgit Schössow draws The New Yorker cover

BirgitSchossows_NewYorker_Film_Noir

German artist Birgit Schössow provides the artwork for the June 10 & 17 (2013) double-sized The New Yorker Fiction Issue. The theme this year if you can’t already guess: film noir.

This appears to be Schossow’s third published cover for the magazine.

She also produced this fun short strip drawing from classic genre movies.
