Dave Johnson + Liz Sherman = Bliss.

If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times. One of my most cherished memories in all of Vs. System history is the unveiling of Liz Sherman’s Uncontrolled Power.

We learned recently that Mike Mignola and his wife personally gave the green light to the artwork on this myth-busting cardboard masterpiece, although the original Dave Johnson painting was a bit too blue. Here’s the before and after. I still can’t believe I was a part of it. Liz never, ever, ever looked like this in the comics or the movies. Only in our beloved trading card game. Forever.

Preparing for the Cosmic Crunchies.

As we twiddle our thumbs in anticipation of the new Super Hero Squad season and its foray into the Marvel Comics’ cosmos, we would like to have a hot little party with two very big villains. Since She-Hulk is getting Chibi and the Squaddies need to know what to expect, fill your eyes with some Galactus and Thanos sketchcards.

Yum.

Sketchcard artists, in order: Andy Price, Brandon Kenney, Katie Cook, Chad Hardin, Warren Martineck, and Megan Hetrick.

Axebone Above All.

For the past few weeks we have been showcasing some of the outrageous Marvel Comics art from the sketch card community chest. Today we are getting alphabetical.

Axebone. That is all.

To think that these orignal art masterpieces are one-of-a-kind prizes that have been inserted in a single set? Wow.

It is true. This entire catalog of visual bliss is contained within the Rittenhouse Archives Marvel 70th Anniversary collection. Happy hunting!

Okami + MvC3 = Bliss.

It has been exactly one month since that fateful day. It was revealed that Amaterasu, the brilliant she-wolf from Okami, will be a featured playable character in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. For those of you that don’t speak Playstationese, this is a very very very good thing.

In honor of one of the top three video game characters ever created, we present the best Okami artwork from the deviant art contest last year, for your eyepopping pleasure. Enjoy.

Red Fish Blue Fish Garland.

My classes have been fishing this week, constructing a garland to decorate a Christmas tree in the local mall. We apply the fish to the pine tomorrow, I will get some photographs for proof.
