Deadman

Been a while since the last post. I've been on vacation, and had nutty-ass deadlines with my freelance. Anyway, here's a Photoshop / Painter painting of DC Comic's Deadman, created by Arnold Drake and Carmine Infantin in 1967. I was blown away by Kelly Jones' drawings of the character in the early '90s. A few years later I finally discovered Berni Wrightson, and the Kelly Jones work seemed a little less special. Anyway.....Hopefuly I'll be posting more regularly.

That is really cool. I might show it to my students.

Sweet! I remember Wednesdays after school, me looking through all the comics that might have boobies in them and you looking everywhere for Kelly Jooooones.

Nice work, sir.

Very dramatic piece. I love him emerging from the smoke. I totally forgot about reading Deadman comics in the 80s. I used to love those. He was a really cool character. I love the more obscure, intense characters of the 60s and 70s that were revived in the 80s. Anyone remember Moon Knight or The Spectre?
