Four by Two

Some Fantastic Four love courtesy of Evan Shaner. First up we have an imaginary cover from the recent Comic Twart topic, “What if the Comic Twart took over Marvel Comics?”. Check out the evolution of this piece at Evan’s blog, here.

Next, Evan pays tribute to the Kirby’s revolutionary photo-montages in this piece entitled, Into the Negative Zone.

Comic Twart – The Thing


Ben Grimm, the ever lovin’ blue eyed Thing, is this week’s choice at the collective sketch blog, Comic Twart. Aunt Petunia’s favorite Nephew was chosen by Evan ‘Doc’ Shaner, whose fantastic contribution above features no less than five Kirby creations.


This dynamic rescue scene, which also features Reed Richards, comes from the brush of Francesco Francavilla. Francesco’s pulp inspired artwork has graced the pages of Zorro, The Black Coat, Sorrow and the forthcoming Garrison. He is the creator of Black Beetle, whose adventures can be found every Sunday at Franceso’s blog, Pulp Sunday. If you would like to see more of Francesco’s lovely work, be sure to visit his sketch blog and website also.

At the time of writing, Comic Twart‘s Thing week boasts new artwork from Kirby-Vision contributors Dan McDaid, Chris Samnee and Ron Salas, along with Twart regulars Mitch GeradsUrban Barbarian, Tom Fowler and Mitch Breitweiser. Don’t miss it.

A Kirby Christmas

Many thanks to Michael and Evan for these fantastic Kirby inspired Christmas cards. Be sure to take a look at both of their blogs for more great work. You can see the original cover to Fantastic Four #46 by Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott, here.

A very merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year to all you Kirby fans out there, Happy Holidays!

(Late on Christmas Eve, Kirby-Vision received this Kirby inspired piece from Chris Haley, taken from the Christmas strip of his webcomic, Let’s Be Friends Again, which we’d like to belatedly add to this festive post).
