For Museum Walls
These stunning panels should convince even
the most stubborn doubter that comics are a
Jessica Jones and child, drawn by Michael
Gaydos. (The Pulse #13)
Who knew that the dead spent so much of
their time relaxing? Mockingbird, Gwen
Stacy, and Dead Girl, from the final splash
page of X-Statix Presents: Dead Girl #1.
(Drawn by Mike Allred and Nick Dragotta.)
What can I say? Amanda Conner is simply
phenomenal. One of her three priceless
pages from The She-Hulk #3/100 extravaganza.
Frank Cho's drawing of an introspective
Jessica Drew from New Avengers #14,
colored by Jason Keith. Several reviewers
have commented upon the beauty of this image.
Yeah, it is. The colorist must be some kind of genius. I saw a "preview" of Cho's drawing here. (You'll need to scroll down, it's all the way down to the bottom.) I thought it was a striking image to start with, but when I saw the colored panel in the book it knocked me out of my seat.
