Happy New Year, Kirby-fans, let’s kick off 2014 with a gallery of nefarious reprobates from the pen of Boston-based artist Chris Goodwin. Chris’ portfolio includes work for the video and role-playing games industries alongside private commissioned portraiture. He teaches painting at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. You can find more of his work at his website and Flickr photostream.
Chicago based artist and designer Tom Kelly treats us to these powerful portraits of Modok and Thor. You can find more of Tom’s artwork at his DeviantArt page and portfolio blog.
It’s that time of year again when Messrs. Brendan Tobin and Pedro Delgaro mindblast the interweb with their gruesome gallery of swollen-headed scoundrelism, March Modok Madness. Now in it’s sixth year, M.M.M. collects the depraved scribblings of maladjusted handicrafters from across the globe (all no doubt in the employ of AIM) and pays homage to one of Kirby’s most bizarre creations the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. Should you have no shame and wish to contribute then M.M.M. will be accepting submissions for the rest of the month at the address below.
A comely MODOK from the brush of Mike Pascale. An alumni of The Kubert School, Mike describes himself as a writer, storyboardist, artist, copywriter & cartoonist for hire. Mike is available for commission via Wednesday’s Heroes and you can find more of his artwork at his ComicArtFans gallery.

It’s that time of year again when Brendan Tobin and Pedro Delgaro unleash their monstrous celebration of one of Jack’s most bizarre creations, March MODOK Madness. The collaborative art blog is now in it’s fifth year and boasts over 500 unique interpretations of the Mobile Organism Designed Only for Killing from an international roster of artists. If your preference in villains is balloon headed cyber-enhanced psychopaths then make sure that March MODOK Madness is part of your 5-a-day.
