Al Williamson Tribute by Francesco Francavilla

Jonah Hex by Mike Norton

Spider Jerusalem by Eric Canete

Tarzan by Mitch Breitweiser

Thor by Andy Kuhn

Masters of the Universe by Tim Doyle

Hawkeye by Gabriel Hardman


  1. That Masters of the Universe sketch seems a bit more S&M then I remember, but, you know what?  I think I’m ok with that. 

  2. I think the Jonah Hex one is very funny. If only all wanted posters looked like that. Especially  the ones in Red Dead Redemption….

  3. The Al Williamsom Tribute & the Hawkeye sketches are AWESOME!!!!!

  4. JFernandes (@jdfernandes) says:

    Can’t get enough Hardman and Breitweiser.

  5. Thor looks like Kronk forom "Emperor’s New Groove".

  6. Man, Mitch Breitweiser just keeps getting better and better.

  7. "Hardman and Breitweiser" sounds like it could be an incredible 70’s cop show, set in Wisconsin.

  8. I am in love with Gabriel Hardman’s work. Every week he’s my favorite in this column.

  9. Canete’s Spider makes me realize how much I miss that series and should do a re-read.

  10. They are all awesome! I love art!

  11. Awesome stuff as always.  Loved Norton’s Jonah Hex. 

  12. That Master of the Universe sketch is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.  Now I want a series.

    Excuse me while I go dig out my Castle of Greyskull playset.

  13. Dude! I just realized that the coloring on Beastman’s collar and Trapjaw’s belt remind me of the action figures, since those were the two parts of their costumes you could remove (besides trapjaw’s arm) and were made out of a different type of plastic. I dont know if that was intentional, (or if anyone else gives a damn) but it totally geeked me out.

  14. I wish Jonah Hex and Hawkeye always looked like that.

  15. Wow!  That Al Williamson tribute makes me want to go dig through some of my EC Weird Science reprints!  and Holy Crap!  who is Tim Doyle and what is he working on currently!?!(I will do my research on that)

  16. About the Jonah Hex sketch:  I don’t recognize that person on the wanted sign.  I’m assuming its someone associated with the movie?  Is that the director or something?

  17. All of this art is WONDERFUL, but Tim Doyle has won my heart with that Masters of the Universe sketch. I am in love! 🙂

  18. That’s Norton in the wanted sign.

  19. I like the minimalist Thor sketch.

  20. Where has Eric Canete been this whole time? Get him to draw Hellblazer and now please.

  21. Seeing that hawkeye sketch makes me think how awesome it would be to have a really dark hawkeye solo series. Sorta like bendis and maleev’s daredevil run. But wouldn’t everything be awesome if it was like bendis and maleev?

  22. Canete’s been doing all sorts of books. He’s currently doing the Luke Cage solo mini with Jon Arcudi.

    I would write the shit out of a solo Hawkeye story like that with Hardman on pencils.

  23. @Josh: He only did half of the last issue. I hope that was a one time thing. My fear is that he’s not doing much of the rest of that mini.

  24. According to Twitter, I think he might have just gotten some more production work, recently.
