MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS was Marvel’s first big comic event that was directly and specifically tied into a line of action figures, which were created by Mattel in the 1980s. Featuring all of Marvel’s most prominent heroes and villains fighting on Battleworld, the comics and toys were a huge success. I personally had all the comics and as many of the action figures as I was able to track down. Awesome art by Mike Zeck sure helped make it all look amazing. Here’s my Mini Marvels tribute to SECRET WARS #1 based on Mike Zeck’s original classic cover.
Here’s a Holiday piece I did this year for the fine folks over at The Marvel Project! Happy Holidays!
I recently had this comic strip sent to me from Jordan…
Pretty awesome, right? But what does it have to do with me? Why does it get a spotlight here on Fan Art Friday? Because this strip was actually suggested by Hawkeye for Colossus to draw…
Much later on, Hawkeye writes down a joke for the Hulk to use on his date with Betty…
And we soon find out what that joke is during Hulk’s date…It’s the same joke Hawkeye suggested for Colossus to draw. But nobody ever did draw that comic strip… until Jordan came along, that is! Great job, Jordan! I love it, and Hawkeye loves it too!
I drew this week’s tribute this past weekend during Project Comic Con in St. Louis, Missouri – the cover to GIANT-SIZE X-MEN #1, originally penciled by Gil Kane and inked by Dave Cockrum. I drew the Mini Marvel version on an official Marvel variant sketch cover for X-MEN GIANT-SIZE #1.
Written by Len Wein and illustrated by Dave Cockrum in 1975, GIANT-SIZE X-MEN #1 was the big game-changer for the X-Men franchise, introducing a diverse group of mutants to become new X-Men team members: Colossus from Russia, Storm from Kenya, Nightcrawler from Germany, Wolverine from Canada, Banshee from Ireland, Sunfire from Japan, and the Native American Thunderbird from the Apache tribe. These new X-Men were gathered by Professor X to help team leader Cyclops rescue original X-Men members Beast, Angel, Iceman and Marvel Girl (Jean Grey).
Giant-Size X-Men, assemble!
