  1. TheLaw TheLaw says:

    Hardman’s Parker is stunning. 

  2. stuclach stuclach says:

    That JLA image uses contrast wonderfully.  There are some amazing images here.  Jim Lee is so skilled he scares me.

  3. stuclach stuclach says:

    That Captain America image should be the movie poster.


    I’m embarrassed how long it took me to notice the Flash in that JLA sketch.

  5. harwellpkg harwellpkg says:

    Is Samnee channeling Darwyn Cooke?

  6. WeaklyRoll WeaklyRoll says:

    i can’t choose a favorite. they are all great.

    The Cap sketch almost looks like the poster for "Captain America: The musical"

  7. minimalism week on Twart has been a ton of fun.  those last two are probably the best of the bunch

  8. I also thoroughly enjoyed this one: http://www.francescofrancavilla.com/gallery/green.html

  9. Neb Neb says:

    That Hardman Parker is absolutely gorgeous.  Love those last two images as well.  Also, Jesse Hamm’s image is hilarious.

  10. Paul Montgomery PaulMontgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    LOVE Mike and Maja’s save the date from Tom Fowler. That is so effing awesome. Congrats, guys!

  11. jmack jmack says:

    Ben Grimm by Doc Shaner is stunning.


  12. ato220 ato220 says:

    My two favorites are easily Captain America by Mitch Gerads and Trick or Treat by Jesse Hamm.

  13. BornIn1142 BornIn1142 says:

    That Batman Trick or Treat image is kind of… disturbing.

  14. WheelHands WheelHands says:

    The Batman Trick or Treat is definitely the most amusing. I laughed out loud.

    It’s a tie between Samnee’s JLA and Lee’s GL for my favorite. It really is amazing what an artist can get outta the iPad. Almost frightening.

  15. diebenny diebenny says:

    God damn.  Double Hardman’s, a Samnee and McKelvie this week.  Sadly, they aint beating Thorcules!  Thats right Reilly Brown!

  16. vadamowens vadamowens says:

    lol. The Batman trick or treat is cute but awful at the same time.

  17. Dan Dan says:

    Abomination nipple!?!?!?!

    Great stuff all around once again. Batman Trick or Treat is just plain hilarious – the look on Babs face is priceless.

    And a Double Hardman (almost as unintentionally dirty sounding as Giant Size Man Thing) – WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!?!?!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the JLA. Shaner’s Ben Grimm has a Samnee-look to it, which is not at all a bad thing.

  18. mikegraham6 mikegraham6 says:

    @Paul: Thanks a lot! i CANNOT wait to send it out, we’re going to the printers today. August 27th: keep your calendar free ;)

  19. Patman2 Patman2 says:

    Jesse Hamms piece made me laugh out loud

  20. bansidhewail bansidhewail says:

    Reilly Brown just makes me smile every time!

  21. More Thorcules please!

    Plus, can we PLEASE have Mitch Breitweiser on Captain America now? 

  22. AMuldowney AMuldowney says:

    Alex Robinson’s Abomination made me want to see him draw an Etrigan humor mini-series.  Probably because I just woke up.  I don’t mean I want him to do it because I just woke up, I just mean the ear fins made me think of The Demon because I don’t have my glasses on yet.

    Look, I don’t have to explain myself to you people. 

  23. muddi900 says:

    Oh god, somebody make a hi-res wallpaper out of that Breitweiser pic. PLEASE!

  24. SirCox SirCox says:

    I love McKelvies Pepper Potts.

  25. CaseyJustice CaseyJustice says:

    It is a crime that Breitweiser isn’t the artist on Captain America.

  26. IroncladMerc says:

    Does Jim Lee draw with some sort of stylus for the iPad or is that a finger drawing?

  27. Cormac Cormac says:

    The Jim Lee pic is LITERALLY ‘drawn on an iPad’ – note the Appple logo! It was done at NYCC for a competition prize, I believe.

  28. wangman31888 wangman31888 says:

    that batman trick or treat one with oracle is AWESOME!!!


  29. kevrum kevrum says:

    I second the trick or treaters. So funny.

  30. ericmci ericmci says:

    Jim Lee’s iPad Green Lantern is one of the Best GL’s I have seen.  Wow.

  31. BenBugenig BenBugenig says:

    Samnee is the King of negative space.

  32. Heroville Heroville says:

    I love that Jim Lee managed to get the logo right where Hal’s Adam’s Apple should be.

  33. God damn Jim Lee and Gabriel Hardman are fantastic!
