"Shazam" #35 (June 1978) | cover art by Mike Nasser Mike Nasser, legendary comic book artist out of Detroit, known for his work with both DC and Marvel comics produced this iconic cover for the 35th issue of "Shazam." Everything about this work speaks to the observer that is is a piece of vintage 70s pop culture. It's a gem - easily one of the best comic book covers to come out of the period. via CBC
Here's a new twist to the term "comic book art." Check out this series of collages by Mike Alcanatara who uses nothing other than the pages of his favorite super heroes' comic books - no paint, no ink, no markers. I'd love to see a video demonstration on the production of one of these. via JUX
