Those Image Comics founders sure know how to draw. Without those mad pencilling skills, there’s no way they ever could’ve jumped Marvel’s ship back in 1992 and bring a whole lotta fans with them. Silvestri is one of those original rebels and his pencils on his own creations like Witchblade, Cyberforce and The Darkness (also a freakily good console game) are things of equal beauty and horror. He has returned to Marvel over the last few years to perty up the pages of X-Men, primarily during the Messiah CompleX series.
The Art of Marc Silvestri book covers the Top Cow CEO’s whole career and also features commentaries by fellow artists Dave Finch, Brandon Peterson, Billy Tan, Mike Choi and Michael Broussard.
The full colour 96 page hard cover book goes on sale August 20, for $US29.99. It’d make a great coffee table book for art lovers or fans of superheroes and villains and the tight bodies that they all possess. See what I mean by checking out a few luscious pages below.
