We’ll open up with this gorgeous piece of Chris Bachelo – a Doctor Strange image and Neil Gaiman poem for the Hero Initiative and BINC Foundation auction 2021.
Guido Crepax – such incredibly striking work…
Mike Maihack – “Saw a cool jacket while image searching and thought, “You know who would rock a jacket like this? Storm, from the X-Men – But in truth, I think I just wanted to draw Storm and used the jacket as an excuse (really, any number of X-Folk would rock this jacket).”
Terry & Rachel Dodson – Birds of Prey

Jaime Hernandez (who else?)
