I have seen a lot of great art from a lot of great artists over the years, but I'm pretty sure that Michael Lombardi was the first to add a caption encouraging people to be more like Aquaman. I mean, if anything, I tend to favor art that advises people to be as unlike Aquaman as humanly possible. I don't even own an orange shirt. That is how dedicated I am to this.
And yet, Lombardi's beautifully exaggerated figures have an appeal that's hard to deny, even when he's drawing the King of Atlantis -- and it helps that he's doing the awesome Brave and the Bold version, too. Check it out, along with other pieces featuring some of our favorite superheroes, below!
Pinup art is always a risky proposition. The balance between fun and sexy and exploitation is a tricky one to walk -- and pretty subjective when you get right down to it -- but when it works, it can be absolutely fantastic. And fortunately, artist Bill Pressing can walk that line better than most.
With his art, Pressing not only provides a calendar of "Horoscope Hotties" and a sexy matryoshka doll (it's, uh, not as weird as it sounds), he also gives us a look at a World War II-era Iron Man and, alongside writer Matt Peters, the adventures of Rex Steele: Nazi Smasher! Check out some selections, including an amazing pinup of Dan DeCarlo's Jetta: Teenager of the Future below!
While his name may forever be associated with one of the most infamous images in DC Comics history, depicting Catwoman and Batman having masks-on sex on a rooftop on the final page of Catwoman #1 (2011), it would be unjust to deny artist Guillem March the credit he plainly deserves for his excellent pinup art...
Earlier this week, we brought you a look at a pieces by popular cover artist Greg Horn, in which a ridiculously cleavage-y Catwoman lapped up milk from a bowl in an alley on her hands and knees while making constant, genuinely disturbing eye contact with the viewer, no matter where you were in the room. Reactions among the staff were pretty mixed -- assuming you consider eyebrow-raising disapproval and jaw-dropping disbelief to be different feelings -- but really, it's not really anything new. Over the course of his career in comics, Horn's done enough pieces that fall squarely in the realm of the bizarre that we could fill up an entire article with 'em.
And today, that's exactly what we're doing, with a look back at 7 of Greg Horn's Most Dubious Drawings!Before we go any further, I do want to point out that I don't actually think Horn is necessarily a bad artist. His work tends to look a little too photo-referenced and plastic for my taste, but more often than not, he turns in perfectly fine work. And then sometimes he drops something on the world that just boggles the mind.
When Darwyn Cooke draws women, he may not always use the same sensibilities as the J. Scott Campbells or Todd McFarlanes of the world, but his secret art powers lie in his vintage charm. The "The New Frontier" creator has years of convention sketches floating around in the wild, and if you're lucky enough to have one, you may be aware that he can make almost any character concept look like an instant classic...
Now that Kieron Gillen and Steven Sanders' "S.W.O.R.D." run has wrapped, fans may be wondering where the quasi-controversial Beast re-designer will turn up next. While the wheels are turning on the artist's next paneled project, Sanders has taken a short sabbatical of sorts to clear his head and experiment illustrating subject matter he had previously shied away from...
