Return to Wonderland.
September 22nd, from 10 am – 4 pm, I will be attending the International Marine City Comic Con at the Marine City Banquet Center in Marine City, MI.
Last up is an old and favorite discoveries from the Nintendo Entertainment System era, Shatterhand, a 2D side scrolling action game where you fight against enemies with only your fists and a robot assistant based on items collected in-game. I might do more recent game titles the next time I revisit this theme.
Next Week’s Theme: Jack Kirby tribute. Includes original drawings inspired by his work and characters created by him.
This is Matt Damon. You might remember him in such films as Good Will Hunting, The Martian, The Talented Mr. Ripley, and of course, the Jason Bourne series. He is definitely not a spy from Team Fortress 2 disguised in a Matt Damon cut-out mask.
Five weeks ago, I posted an art work on Commander Steel, one of DC’s answers to Captain America. Today, I introduce you to Hyperion, Marvel’s first answer to Superman.
Hyperion is a lot similar to Superman, in the sense they share similar super powers as well as origin stories, but with a few minor differences. His powers include super strength, super speed, flight, x-ray vision named “Atomic Vision,” and so forth. He even has his own kryptonite in the name of “Argonite.” Like Commander Steel, there are different versions of Hyperion, except each one comes from a different universe. Few align to the forces of good, others to the forces of evil, and one is even a zombie from the Marvel Zombies universe. The one posted above is based on the most recent version of the character. Not only is he a member of the Avengers (in the comics), but also a leader to the Squadron Supreme, Marvel’s take on the Justice League.
I got into this character when I was looking up early work from comic book artist, Gary Frank, and came across Marvel’s mature series, Supreme Power. Personally, it reminded me of Watchmen in its deconstruction of superheroes, but with characters based on members of the Justice League. This version of Hyperion was raised by the US government and used as a secret weapon. It would also be the inspiration to one of my original characters.
As of this post, I still haven’t seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I’m going off what I’ve seen so far in the series, including the original trilogy and “A Star Wars Story” titles (e.g. Rogue One). I haven’t seen the prequels (Episodes 1-3), either, nor do I think I’ll be drawing characters from them anytime soon.
T’Challa, ruler of Wakanda, suits up as the Black Panther. This is my latest artwork of the character, in anticipation for the Marvel movie coming next week in the states.
“From out of the pages of DC Comics comes the world’s newest and greatest superhero… Plastic Man!” – Opening narrator from The Plastic Man Comedy Adventure Show (1979)
Plastic Man was probably the third superhero I was introduced to after Batman and Superman. I use to catch the old animated series every Saturday morning, when I was a little kid. It even included live action segments with an actor playing the lead role. Figured I do this for today’s Inktober prompt.
