It’s the crappy middle-end of winter here in the UK, that bit where there’s absolutely nothing to look forward to except the few days of summer sometime around July or August. In the meantime, we plow through the wind and the rain all through January. Bleak is the word.
So, here we’re going to attempt to light up your dull days with some 4-colour wonder… it’s Art For Art’s Sake…
Farel Dalrymple – Mister Miracle
Andrew Robinson does the Contessa Valentina Allegre de Fontaine and Fury…
Nolan Lee – Jenny Sparks
Phil Noto – X-Men
Mike Parobeck – Batman Adventures
Rob Guillory – Peter Parker
Michael Cho – Plastic Man
Richard Corben – Hellboy
Rufus Dayglo – Harley & Tank Girl getting mashed…
Ryan Sook – The Shadow
Sergio Aragones… the one and only Groo…
Shade by Duncan Fegredo…
Mike W Kaluta – Shadowcat
Rafael Albuquerque – Starman
Classic Steranko – Captain America
Mike Mitchell – Iron Man
And we shall end this week with the magnificent Roberta Gregory.
I first saw her work with her classic series, Naughty Bits, a blistering, take no prisoners book featuring Bitchy Bitch and Bitchy Butch and have loved what she does ever since then.
Her work includes plenty of Naughty Bits, best found in her Life’s A Bitch collection, but she’s also been a frequent and wonderful contributor to a slew of feminist and underground comics, including Wimmen’s Comix and Gay Comix.
You can see more of her work at robertagregory.com.
