Comic Book Art: Supergirl by Phil Noto Comic Book Art | Comic Books 07 DEC 2011

Comic book artist Phil Noto produces some stunning, clean line artwork on the comic book scene, and is well known for his cover work and beautiful illustrations, often featuring female characters with a very retro feel attached. At one stage a clean up artist for Disney, there is a surprising lack of information surrounding Phil Noto online, but if you are keen, you could always follow the man on Twitter or at his Tumblr blog.

This particularly stunning illustration stars everyone’s favourite Kryptonian lass, Supergirl.

Covered: Beautiful Killer #1 (Adam Hughes) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 11 JUN 2011

In 2002 writer Jimmy Palmiotti and artist Phil Noto unleashed the three part Beautiful Killer story upon the unsuspecting public, via Wizard’s short-lived comics foray, Black Bull Comics. It tells the story of one Brigit Cole, the albino daughter of two renowned, world class top secret agents, who both withdrew from public life to rear Brigit in complete isolation on a secluded island.

Trained by her parents in all the skills of the spy, Brigit is a competent marksman, survivalist, disguise artist and computer hacker, all rolled in one. However, the times have certainly changed since her parents were in active duty, meaning her skills too have adapted to suit our current day and age.

In other words, certainly not a young woman you would wish to make mad and then unleash into the world!

While Phil Noto certainly provided excellent interior work to bring this story to life, it was cover artist extraordinaire Adam Hughes who was turned to in order to provide the striking cover art for issue 1, and as per usual he came up with an absolute beauty!
