It’s Morphin’ Time: Best ‘Power Rangers’ Art Ever

Featured Image 1

In August of 1993, the immortal words “It’s Morphin’ Time!” were first broadcast to an unsuspecting public on the Fox network. More than twenty years later, it is apparently still time to morph, because the Power Rangers are poised on the precipice of another pop-culture explosion thanks to the upcoming comic series and third major movie.

To celebrate this enduring pop culture phenomenon, we've compiled a gallery of art inspired by the show’s earliest incarnation, along with some great ideas for redesigns and updates of the classic characters.

Sketchbook Spotlight: The Art of Evan ‘Doc’ Shaner

shaner-feat

Convention season is well under way, offering fans the chance to come face to face with their favorite artists, and offering artists a chance to meet the people their art has inspired. Conventions are also a chance for fans to show their appreciation by commissioning original pieces featuring some of their favorite characters, and every convention produces a feast of amazing works that deserve to be shared with a wider audience. With Sketchbook Spotlight, we’re picking out some of the best.

Evan 'Doc' Shaner is probably best known to fans as an artist who loves to celebrate the two-fisted pulp joy and derring-do of superheroes --- a love exemplified in his work on Flash Gordon at Dynamite, and his too-brief turn drawing the Big Red Cheese in Convergence: Shazam. It also comes through in his sketches, and we've collected a few favorites here, including commissions, warm-ups, and personal pieces. We also asked Shaner to participate in our short Sketchbook Spotlight Q&A.

To celebrate the show, we've compiled this gallery — a small, but significant sample of the fan community’s passion for the silly little hero who, with the help of his friends and a cheeseburger backpack, might just save the universe.

25 Greatest Animated Comic Book Covers

ya-feat

Comic covers are meant to get their message across in a single striking image, with the implication of movement provided only by the reader's imagination. We see the single frozen moment; our brain tells the story. Yet some talented digital artists have discovered that there's some fun to be had in animating these images and providing just a little more movement to the moment. We've collected some of our favorite examples of animated comic covers from the past few years, from an endlessly recursive Batman to a lolling Hobbes; from a struggling Spider-Man to a spinning Justice League.

Nostalgia Overload: ‘Star Wars’ Movies Get Little Golden Book Adaptations

sw-lgb-feat

Odds are you enjoy, or are at least familiar with, the Star Wars series of films. And there's a good chance you read Little Golden Books (or had them read to you) when you were a youngster. You know the ones: The colorfully illustrated books with a signature golden spin, that retell classic stories.

Since you almost definitely know both of those things, someone put them together, and the final presentation is pretty cool. That's right: The classic (and also the newer) Star Wars films are being adapted into Little Golden Books so even the smallest of kids can get up to speed with Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, Darth Vader and the Death Star.

Joe Phillips’ ‘Silver Screen Heroes’ Imagines an Old Hollywood Take on Superhero Movies

jp-screen-feat

Joe Phillips' table in Artists' Alley is always an essential stop for me at San Diego Comic Con. The former Heretic and Superboy artist is one of the only guys at any comics show who can always be counted on for a great selection of quality beefcake pin-ups that rival the cheesecake that's so prevalent on other artists' tables. If you're in the market for a coquettish Angel, or a stripping Steve Rogers, Joe Phillips is your man.

But this year Phillips had something new on his table --- and so incredibly camp that it may appeal to much of the same audience that loves the hero beefcake. Phillips has taken some of the biggest stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood and cast them as some of the biggest names in superhero comics, to give fans a vision of what these movies might have looked like in another era.
