Marvel and Benefit Cosmetics’ ‘SpyGal’ Sports Gorgeous Phil Noto Artwork [High-Res Preview]

Benefit Cosmetics is combining forces with Marvel Comics to launch a comic book inspired by Benefit’s beauty products, entitled SpyGal. Marvel assembled the team of acclaimed writer James Asmus (Uncanny X-Men, Captain America) and masterful artist Phil Noto (Batgirl, X-23) to bring SpyGal to life in this beautiful limited edition release, which will be available on Benefit Cosmetics makeup counters everywhere this month.

Obviously we’re big Phil Noto fans around here, so Marvel was kind enough to hook us up with some high resolution versions of the SpyGal promo material that was distributed last week. Check those out after the cut, as well as a fully lettered SpyGal adventure.

Inspired by the blue retro packaging of POREfessional, Benefit’s best-selling pore minimizing primer, SpyGal is a witty secret agent decked in blue mod threads and equipped with a pore-zapping ray gun and touch-up pro case as her primary weapons. With an entire catalog of skincare products that provide instant beauty solutions and prevent pores from resembling Ben-Day dots, Benefit Cosmetics easily lends itself to be a viable artillery for both makeup enthusiasts and super-spies alike.

As demonstrated masterfully with his series of period-specific superhero snapshots, Phil Noto’s ’60s-influenced style is perfect for this kitschy makeup mascot, whose look the artist imbues with as much beauty, strength and class as DC’s Birds of Prey, Marvel’s X-23 and his own Triggergirl 6 (coming soon from Image Comics) and all the other comic book heroines with which Noto’s become associated. With the release of SpyGal and the success of last year’s Wonder Woman x MAC Cosmetics collaboration (featuring the dynamic and similarly fashion-conscious artwork of Mike and Laura Allred), perhaps the crossover of comics and cosmetics will be a more common event that we will see in the upcoming seasons in the beauty industry.
