Fast and Furiosa: Comic Artist Take On ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’


Mad Max: Fury Road took a lot of people by surprise this weekend with just how good, how exciting, how beautiful, and how progressive it is, but those smart folks at Vertigo Comics seemed to know what was coming. Not only have they commissioned a quartet of prequel comics, starting this week with Nux And Immortan Joe; they also put together an art book full of wonderful tributes to the movie by some of the best artists in comics.

We’ve scoured the internet to pull together several of these amazing works for your enjoyment, as well as some Mondo Gallery tie-in art and the Tommy Lee Edwards covers to the upcoming comics. You can see the art from Mad Max: Fury Road: Inspired Artists pieces in the gallery above, and the Mondo and comic cover art below.

We suspect this is just the start when it comes to Fury Road art; even now there are hundreds of professional and amateur fans who have been inspired to take up their pencils and offer their own takes on Imperator Furiosa, and we can’t wait to see it! What a lovely day.

Then, amid this cruel depravity, an unlikely rescuer emerges…the Immortan’s most lethal warrior: the Imperator Furiosa.
