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.

This very cool but hot piece of cover art graced Marvel Comic’s X-Men issue 190, released in October 2006, courtesy of the illustrious Chris Bachelor together with inker (and general partner in crime) Tim Townsend.

And while the cover might show Mystique and Iceman in a passionate embrace, the synopsis for part 3 of writer Mike Carey’s Supernovas story arc says nothing more than Cable returns to the X-Men and the X-Men battle a brainwashed Northstar and Aurora.

So that doesn’t help all that much in other words. Still, a fantastic example of cover art done beautifully!

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.
