Alex Toth tribute by John Paul Leon

I saw this on Facebook and had to share it.

A tribute to Alex Toth by John Paul Leon!  Stunning and it features so many characters that Toth created or worked on.  If I didn't know better I would say that Toth had drawn this piece himself.  Space Ghost, Black Canary, Johnny Quest and the Super Friends all in one place.  Nuff Said!

Barry Smith: Bran Mak Morn and Belit

A couple of classic prints from Barry Smith that I stumbled across, featuring his incredible line work.

Bran Mak Morn print/poster from 1975.  One of Robert E Howard's many creations, he was in a classic Savage Sword of Conan two parter.  My recollection was that Smith began the story with a few pencilled pages and Conrad finished it?

Belit from Howard's Queen of the Black Coast story featuring Conan.  When we saw Belit in the color Conan comic she was drawn by John Buscema, wearing what looked like a fur bikini!  I always wondered how Barry Smith would have depicted this character - and you can see how from this print.  She is still not wearing much but does look more like a pirate.

I am mostly on Tumblr these days, but still will come back here occasionally, please follow me there!  Nuff Said.

The Question by Kevin Maguire

Another great commission by Kevin Maguire with an ironic twist.

How funny is it that the artist so good at doing facial expressions can knock out a wonderful drawing about a faceless character?  Nuff Said!

Space Opera by Wally Wood

I love pure pen and ink drawings that make great use of silhouettes and light.  This little masterpiece by Wally Wood takes me back to the early days of science fiction and EC Comics.
