Marvel comics for May 2013: a few interesting covers from this month’s solicitations. This is the cover for All-New X-Men #11, drawn by the excellent Stuart Immonen.
Marvel comics for March 2013: this is the cover for All-New X-Men #8, drawn by Stuart Immonen. He’s a great artist, and I really like the diagonal split in image to separate the groups.
Iron Fist and Dr. Strange by Stuart Immomen
Fact: Stuart Immonen is awesome.
Marvel comics for May 2012: this is the cover to Avenging Spider-Man #7, drawn by Stuart Immonen. This is a very simple cover but an attention-grabbing one: the artwork and the close-up are what sells it.
Marvel comics for April 2011: Stuart Immonen is a really good artist, and it’s great to see someone who is so talented and has improved his already good style doing so well. This is his cover to Fear Itself Spotlight, which isn’t really a comic but it is a good visual.
Marvel comics for January 2011: Stuart Immonen does a particularly dynamic cover for New Avengers #8. It’s hard to get that sense of movement on a static image, but Immonen does a great job here, combined with his sense of design and his strong, elegant style.
Comic book collection: Shock Rockets was a six-issue series from Kurt Busiek and Stuart Immonen set in the future of Earth after a war with aliens. Earth is now protected by the the Shockrockets, hi-tech aircraft built with alien technology, manned by elite pilots; the story is told through the eyes of a new pilot who becomes a Shockrocket by accident. It was a great story, with great art from Immonen in his softer style of his early days. The image is the cover to the trade paperback.
Marvel comics for August 2010: this is an awesome cover for New Avengers #3 (the second volume) by Stuart Immonen. It’s so awesome that it doesn’t need Wolverine in it; it would be even better if he wasn’t there, because you could focus on Dr Strange and Iron Fist, who both look really cool.
Today’s totally random choice: Stuart Immonen’s cover for New Avengers #56. I have no idea why I wanted to see some Immonen art, but any excuse is justified. He’s really grown as an artist, and his latest style is particularly pleasing.
Comic Book Collection: Nextwave was short-lived but was a wonderful and dazzling experience it was. Warren Ellis and Stuart Immonen took some C-list heroes and had a blast and entertained us along the way. My favourite cover is for issue #2, which will explain some of the amusement in the form of Fin Fang Foom: ‘I wear underpants’. Nextwave, we miss you still.
