Week 4

One of the wonderful things about the internet is it allows us the ability to find so much awesome talent we might not have been exposed to otherwise. It’s a shame some folks want to ruin it… But that’s a topic for another time. Let’s talk about cool artwork!

is the artist behind this Red Sonja image. I was scrolling through a bunch of Sonja pieces and this one just jumped out at me. I was looking specifically for a Red Sonja piece to use at someone point for the column. Let’s face it, if I only featured Marvel and DC females this is going to get stale pretty quick. So I’ve set up some guidelines for myself to keep things fresh. Regardless, when I saw this image there was no question this was the One!

Gerardo Sandoval is an artist that I discovered when I was just starting to get back into comics more seriously after my last hiatus. Guardians 3000 was the first book that I was actively buying the ratio variant covers for. Sandoval was doing the interior work which I loved so much I wanted his covers too… Sorry, I know it’s will blow people’s minds but those Alex Ross covers did nothing for me.

I know some people were not really feeling Gerardo’s work on Venom and that’s a real shame. I think he was great on Venom and I kept hoping he might get to do a story where Black Cat and Venom actually fought. Sandoval is really good at drawing bad guys, so here’s a Star Wars villains piece he did which I believe is unpublished.

I’ve only just begun to scratch the surface of the incredible artwork that’s floating around online. So make sure you tune in every Monday!
