Valentine Special

Riffing on Kirby’s early Romance comics here’s an imaginary Cover for ‘The Fantastic Four Valentine Special‘ created by curator Jason Garrattley.

Bizarre Adventures

Always a pleasure to showcase new work from Marc Basile. This time Marc presents a Marvel project that never was but maybe it should have been. Marc writes, “I concocted the cover from some Earl Norem artwork and the storyboard was from Kirby’s stint at Ruby Spears studio, colored to look like storyboard marker art.”

Nobody does it better
