Batman, Nightwing, 3Robins, Batgirl & Batwoman Art By Kyle Smart

Ever heard of Wave 9? They're a group of talented young artists who have banded together to show off their talent. Among them is Kyle Smart, who obviously has a love for geeky things too.

I'd been searching for some decent Nightwing fan art to show off for a change, and stumbled across a few posts about the image below. What none of those posts mentioned was that the Nightwing picture was one of a series that encapsulated a whole Bat-Family! Shame there's no Steph or Cassie, but this was more about the visually striking than a complete collection of everyone who ever wore the Bat-logo.

I don't believe that these are available as actual posters, which is a real shame. But I would so love to see these on my wall... Especially Nightwing ;)

30 Amazing Avengers Drawings By Jun Bob Kim - Part 1/2

Colossus Evolution By Jun Bob Kim

After last week's marathon of 30 JSA members drawn by Jun Bob Kim, I thought it would be fun to follow up with a mighty Marvel marathon! I've been a fan of Jun Bob Kim's art ever since he appeared out of nowhere and won my X-Men Evolutions inspired Contest with his amazing rendition of Colossus. Anyway, after completing his 30 JSA in 30 project, Jun Bob Kim moved on to 30 Avengers.

If you missed the tribute to many of DC Comics classic heroes, you can find them in three instalments: Here, here and here!

Because there are so many images, I thought it would be easier on your internet by splitting this into two posts...

Stained Glass Windows Super Heroes By Marissa Garner

Following the popularity of the Splatter Painted Heroes By Arian Noveir that I posted on Valentine's Day (because I love you!) I found some more witty fan art that you might like.

Marissa Garner is a multi-talented artist. She's not only an illustrator, but a sculptress too! She works on her own comic book called Stitchery. I've no idea how she came up with the idea for these genius designs; popular geeky franchises transformed into stained glass windows! There's something for everyone, comic book super heroes, shoujo manga, anime ponies & transforming alien robotic life-forms!

Batman
Spider-Man
Professor X & The X-Men
Sailor Moon
My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
Transformers

If you like what you see here you can find more about Marissa Garner at her website, or you can find her on DeviantArt as nenuiel.

Splatter Painted Heroes! DC, Marvel & Hellboy By Arian Noveir

Because it's Valentines Day, because I love you so much, and because not everyone likes Zombies, I thought I would give you some more eye candy.

I don't know much about Arian Noveir, but his talent more than makes up for that. This is a series of paintings with very basic details, lots of violently effective splatters and tonnes of comic book iconography!

So who is your favourite?

Dark Horse

Hellboy

DC Comics

Batman
Superman
Wonder Woman

Marvel

Captain America
Hulk
Iron Man
Spider-Man
Thor
Wolverine

ZOMBIES! Charlie Brown, Tintin, Batman & More By Andre De Freitas

Happy Valentines Day! Nothing quite says 'I Love You' like zombies!

These images dated back to Halloween 2011, but I stumbled across them earlier today. Andre De Freitas is a Peruvian illustrator & photographer who sees the beauty in stillness and therefore draws as if he is taking a photo of his subject. His imagination has created some beautiful original works, but also taken the time to appreciate some of the more geeky things in life.

He's drawn a selection of characters from comic books, video games and books (both old & new) and given them the Zombie treatment! Not just the usual Marvel Zombies, although Iron Man makes an appearance to represent the "House of Ideas". There's also: Archie Andrews, Charlie Brown, Donald Duck, One Piece's Monkey D Luffy, Popeye the Sailor Man, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Raphael, Street Fighter's Ryu, Tintin, "Waldo", the 'Butcher' from Gangs of New York, and of course it wouldn't be complete without a Zombie Batman.

And if you're tired of seeing zombies, then I thought I'd throw in some DC legends for you to admire (although this was already a fairly image-heavy post, so please forgive their tiny thumbnails).

Run! Zombies!!

Zombie Archie
Zombie Batman
Zombie Butcher
Zombie Charlie Brown
Zombie Donald Duck
Zombie Iron Man
Zombie Luffy
Zombie Popeye
Zombie Raphael
Zombie Ryu
Zombie Tintin
Zombie Wally/Waldo

Last Of The 30 JSA Members Drawn By Jun Bob Kim 3/3

The concluding part of Jun Bob Kim's project to draw 30 JSA Members In 30 Days. Although there's 30 characters, there are actually 32 images in total as Wonder Woman is lucky enough to get 3 pictures dedicated to her!

I hope you've enjoyed these as much as I have. Personally, it's been an eye-opener and an introduction to some Golden Age characters I wasn't aware of, compared to their assorted Silver Age, Bronze Age or even Modern Age counterparts. There are quite a few Sandmen and Starmen (curse you DC Comics & your endless mantles & legacies!!).

Which have been your favourites

This is Part Three of Three! If you like these, then don't miss Part One or Part Two!

30 JSA Members In 30 Days Drawn By Jun Bob Kim 1/3

Jun Bob Kim's Evolution Of Colossus

Every now & then I like to highlight the super hero work of artists who deserve some recognition for their hard work & creativity.

Take my internet friend Jun Bob Kim for instance, he initially wowed me last year with his contest winning picture of Colossus. I've been following Jun Bob Kim on Twitter ever since, which is where I see regular updates on his latest projects. One of those completed projects is his 30 JSA members drawn in 30 days, where he had to draw one member of the JSA per day. Some are from the Golden Age, some Silver, some Bronze & others are more Modern.

Although this project was completed some time ago, I thought it would be fun to put some DC characters in the spotlight for a change. As there are so many images that I thought it would be best to split this into thirds to go easier on your browser.

This is Part One of Three! Please also check out Part Two, and Part Three!

Golden Age Atom (Al Pratt)
Golden Age Batman
Black Adam
Golden Age Black Canary
Captain Marvel
Cyclone
Golden Age Doctor Fate (Kent Nelson)
Golden Age Doctor Mid-Nite (Charles McNider)
Golden Age Flash (Jay Garrick)
Golden Age Green Lantern (Alan Scott)

Yet More Fashionable X-Men & X-Ladies By Kevin Wada & Max Wittert

Over the last few months, artists Kevin Wada & Max Wittert have been giving the X-Men a make-over. Inspired by Project: Rooftop, they originally redisnged a handful of X-Ladies to sell as prints at APE (Comic Con's Alternate Press Expo). They had such fun & success with the first 'Round' of designs, that they've redesigned more & more X-Men with the aim to give each character a new look while retaining their unique style & iconography.

They've already redesigned assorted X-Men allies & villains, and recently they branched out to redesigning the boys. So if they haven't done already, then it's only a matter of time before they reach your favourite mutant! If they haven't done already, who would you like to see?

So which redesign is your favourite from Round 4?

Kevin Wada

Bishop
Magneto
Moonstar/Mirage
Scarlet Witch

Max Wittert

Aurora & Northstar
Dead Girl
Ms Marvel
Nightcrawler

I just LOVE Dani Moonstar's Sleipnir shoes! But they look so painful! With so many beautiful X-Ladies to choose from, it could be years before they get around to my favourite former fashion diva, Boom Boom! ;)
