Here is the first batch of approved Marvel Masterpieces II cards.
Characters shown: Annihilus, Arcade, Bullseye, Beta Ray Bill, Absorbing Man, Cable, Bishop, Blob and Alicia Masters.
These cards were drawn with Micron pens and Prismacolor markers/pencils.
I'm starting each day with these cards. I'll be doing three a day for the next month and a half. I plan to work my way through the Marvel Universe and never repeat a character, so this should be fun. Due to my busy comic book schedule I only have time for quickie head shots for these cards, but I'm very happy with what I've done so far. I hope everyone feels the same.
UPDATE: Okay, I'm getting a lot of PMs, e-mails, comments, etc from artists on this set expressing surprise that I have begun posting scans. So here's how it works . . .
If you want to show off YOUR cards publicly, you have to scan them, e-mail a batch to Mark (do NOT send individual card scans). He will send the scans to Marvel for approval and if they ARE approved, you can proceed to post them online.
Mark has actually ASKED us to scan them in his e-mails, so he can move the approval process along.
It's really that simple. I am not a special case, this applies to everyone, so get to scanning and I look forward to seeing your cards!
England's super soldier, Union Jack! One of my favorite characters in the Marvel U that gets zero attention or love! Until now that is. Captain America writer Ed Brubaker has brought him back and teaming up with Cap against Nazis and a possible Red Skull return! If you haven't read any of it, go out and do it now. Brubaker brought back Bucky as the Winter Soldier and he kicks butt! OK, enough ranting. Hope you guys like this one.
