This is something I'm doing between #commissions for #indianacomiccon next month. I've been itching to draw a cool #blackandwhite #manthing 😉... pure #zendrawing here. I completely get lost in the detail. Anyway, I'm really looking forward to my first #comiccon of the season and want to make sure I have a few new pages on the table. I plan to do a few more #vs #strips too, but this guy is my between commissions page and its pretty fun... anyway have a great Friday guys and gals! #comicart #matthewskillern #comicpage #comicbook #originalart #indieart #marvelcomics #punk #grunge #90sgrunge #ink #pencils #penciler #punkrock #marvelentainment #splashpage #marvel #swamp #swampcreatures #swampcreature #swampy #bog

#JackedKirby - X-Men vs Avengers!!! Let’s Go!!!
💥💥💥
The X-Men and The Avengers are two of the greatest superhero teams ever assembled... and both sprung from the minds of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. While Stan Lee may have had some input into the dialogue of these characters, there is no denying the lion share of the creation process came from Kirby... between the two teams we have no less then 10 iconic character designs that will go down in comics history. And way back in #Issue9 of X-Men, published in January of 1965, we see the teams cross paths for the first time... and the fight was epic!!! 💥💥💥
The opening “synopsis splash” page shows us our heroes in a circular pattern squaring off, with some sort of space satellite in the middle and Charles Xavier’s floating head overseeing it all... as always these pages do a good job of setting the stage for the action to come!
💥💥💥
Next we skip ahead to pages 11-13 and we get to the action... it’s a full on battle royal between the heavyweight champs and the young upstart mutants in the forest!!! 💥💥💥
Thor look like he is gonna start it off, but Cyclops beats him to the punch and zaps Mjolnir out of his hand with a well placed eye beam... Angel tries to swoop in and lift it, but it wont budge! Beast dodges Cap’s shield with some acrobatic moves, but he can’t escape the large grasp of Giant Man!!! Ice Man eventually gets a hold of Giant Man, but Marvel Girl gets bested by the tiny Wasp!!! It’s a battle for the title... and no one is backing down!!!
💥💥💥
Actually the battle soon ends when Xavier can contact Thor mentally and tell him the X-Men mean the Avengers no harm. They all team up to battle Lucifer, the big baddie in this issue... but this wouldn’t be the last time the two heroic teams clash!!!
💥💥💥
This story was also reprinted in Annual #1 of the X-Men... because of how classic it really was!!!

Been on this idea for awhile....like a decade. I'm tired of sitting on it but I'm scared of outcomes....not much to go on but its part of a bigger world. So...what are some thoughts?

#JackedKirby - Rakenstein’s Monster!!!
💥💥💥
Jack was never one to waste a good layout.... even if it was repurposed a few issues later in the same arc! Here is a great example of just that... one being a cover and another being an interior splash page two issues later!!!
💥💥💥
The first two images are the original pencils and final colored image from #Issue11 of The Demon published in August of 1973. It features The Monster, an evil creation of Baron von Rakenstein... aka Dr Evilstein! The Monster rampages through Gotham City and encounters The Demon... But he doesn’t seem to be so evil after all. He seems like he is trying to ESCAPE from Rakenstein’s control...
💥💥💥
A few issues later we see a splash page opening up Chapter 2 of #Issue13 of the Demon (picture 3) published in October of 1973. It features The Monster again, in a very similar pose and layout as the previous cover. Feet covered in rubble, people running away, the Monster towering over the scene... it is nearly identical. But it’s NOT... it’s actually completely different! 💥💥💥
Jack could recreate a page almost exactly, effortless maintaining the continuity of his linear art work. That is one of the most challenging aspects of comic book art... and one that Jack shows a mastery over time and time again!
