Comic Book Art: Colossus by Chris Bachalo and Tim Townsend Comic Book Art | Comic Books 25 JUN 2012

I’ve always been a huge fan of American comic book artist Chris Bachalo’s darkly emotive (and often quite cartoony) artwork, and this particular piece of artwork featuring the hulking figure of Colossus of the X-Men against a brilliant yellow background (with the aid of inker supremo Tim Townsend), ended up being the cover for issue 3 of the X-Men: Colossus Bloodline 5-part mini-series from Marvel that ran back in 2005.

Comic Art: Rogue and the X-Men by Frank Cho Comic Book Art | Comic Books 01 NOV 2011

Frank Cho is a fantastically talented artist who has been entertaining us for years with his Liberty Meadows webcomic and of course his subsequent work done in the comic book industry. Incredibly detailed pencils and the ability to switch styles at the drop of a hat, Cho is also known for producing some of the best pinup girl artwork that you’ll ever come across.

This particular piece of artwork comes straight out of Marvel’s X-Men universe, showing off a busty Rogue in her new costume, displaying her prodigious super strength while Colossus, Wolverine and Cyclops faff around in the background! :P

Covered: X-Men: Colossus – Bloodline #4 (Chris Bachalo) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 30 JUL 2011

I’ve always liked the big metal Russian X-Men, Colossus, and in 2005 Marvel brought out the five issue long Bloodline mini-series, Colossus: Bloodline, scripted by David Hine with interior art from Jorge Lucas.

This sad story revolving the murder of even more members of Piotr’s ever dwindling family and the evil will of Rasputin, deserved some great cover art to complement the insides, and so the legendary Chris Bachalo stepped up to the plate to deliver some hauntingly beautiful portrayals of Colossus, with ink work handled by the talented Tim Townsend.
