Inspire – Comic Art

inspire_0003_artgerm_pepperfreedomI love comics.  Always have, always will.  For me it’s the combination of amazing pencil artworks, inks, colours and original outlandish stories.  From traditional comics like Superman and Batman and the X-Men to Darkness, Sandman, Witchblade, Lobo, 2000AD, Rogue Trooper, Strontium Dog,  Watchmen, Preacher and Judge Dredd… I even enjoy the off the wall way out art and stories of the adult orientated Heavy Metal Magazine.  Topcow, DC, Marvel and Vertigo were places I dreamed of working at.  I wished I could draw like Marc Silvestri or ink like Matt Banning (not gonna happen) and write stories like Stan Lee (maybe I will one day).  I used to save up my pocket money each month just to get the next release of whoever my favourite hero was at the time.  These days you need to live at home in your moms basement (or win the lotto) to afford them all but thanks to the net you can still appreciate the amazing art of comic book artists.

Theme – Comic Artists

Here are a few artists I found and follow on DeviantArt.  These are not actual comic book pages, more like illustrations and covers by the artists.  There are literally tens of thousands of images on the site (try http://comicartnetwork.deviantart.com/ for more) and if you really like this kind of thing, you could while away the sands of time (and your internet cap) just browsing.  Ladies, yes, we know comic book girls are anatomically impossible but hey, you got Barbies, we got comics – hence the over-abundance of imaginative female forms .  On that topic, while everything I am linking to is SFW (and DeviantArt requires login for anything more explicit) your explorations may lead you to more provocative images that your local branch of “Purple Haired Prudes Anonymous” may not like.
