Minimalist Marvel Posters

I always enjoy how people can interpret the symbols of Comic Characters and this artist took that to another level with a lot of Marvel Characters. Very cool work and Galactus being one of the more imposing looking posters, I would mind having this up on a wall in a certain patern, it would look cool.

The Avengers – Assemble

This has been a very good year for Marvel, and all their movies have been building up the different characters and the stories. And now The Avengers will soon be upon us, with that they have released the concept art of The Avengers. I’m not sure what or how the story line is going to go, all I know is that I am excited to see it, its been developing for a long time now and a lot of talent has gone into it.

Below you will find the individual concept art banners for The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) alongside Agent Coulson and Agent Maria Hill.

Review: Wolverine Anime

Plot Summary: Next in the four-part Marvel Anime project and broadcasts after the Iron Man anime. Wolverine is a mutant, possessing animal-keen senses, enhanced psychical capabilities, three retracting bone claws on each hand and a healing factor that allows him to recover from virtually any wound, disease or toxin at a accelerated rate.

The anime versions of the Marvel Universe keep getting better and better, this time around Wolverine is a bad ass fighting off a part of the criminal world. There was a nice cameo of Cyclops half way through the anime. Its interesting to see the world of mutants through the eyes of Anime, its not the big struggle like it is with American animation but the story goes deep into Wolverine’s past in Japan, and you jump right into it, the story gets more twisted towards the end and lets hope for some more episodes of Wolverine. Its an action packed anime with story getting better and better, I think that the Iron Man Anime was better but this was damn good, and I can’t wait to see the X-Men anime.

Review: X-Men First Class

In 1962, Charles Xavier starts up a school and later a team, for humans with superhuman abilities. Among them is Erik Lensherr, his best friend… and future archenemy.

There was a barrage of comic book movies coming out this year, this might end up being the best and the most restrained with CGI . I was excited when they announced another X-Men movie since Wolverine wasn’t as good as I expected even though I liked it. But an Origins movie is tough to pull off since comic book stories are very complex and Batman Begins was one of the few that got it right. Nevertheless, I went into this movie with certain expectations, and they were surpassed. This movie is fantastic. The dynamic of new friends that will grow up to be enemies and seeing how the Xavier school came about is really fun. The film could have spent a little more time of showing why the two men chose such different paths, but thats a small detail that only true comic book geeks like myself will notice, loved the Wolverine cameo. And I especially enjoyed some of the new characters, looking forward to seeing the next iteration of this the new X-Men.

Review: Iron Man – Anime

Plot Summary: Tony Stark is a physicist, an engineer, and the CEO of a major arms manufacturing company. On a battlefield he is injured from his own weapons and taken prisoner by terrorists. In order to keep his own heart beating, he creates the Ironman Suit and escapes. Once free, Stark decides to dedicate his life to pursuing world peace with the Ironman technology, so he moves to Japan to use the resources of “Lab 23,” home of the world’s first Arc Reactor. Wanting to devote himself fully to this research, Stark decides to retire as Ironman and announce the mass-production of suits to fulfill his duties. But at the announcement ceremony he is attacked by the mysterious organization known as “Zodiac,” and his plans have to change.

Iron Man is one the best characters out of Marvel at this moment and Marvel have taken their best step yet to turn it into an Anime. Its the first to be done for a show to go from American origins to Japanese Animation, most of the time it goes from Japanese to American cartoons. And I think they did a fantastic job with Iron Man, loved the characters and all the robots and how they made Tony Stark in the Anime. I flew through the 12 episodes and wanted a lot more, they made it a darker story in the Anime and that is one of the best qualities of it, there is an enemy in the background and it gets interesting. I can’t wait for more Marvel Anime shows!

Review: Thor

The powerful but arrogant warrior Thor is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard and sent to live amongst humans on Earth, where he soon becomes one of their finest defenders.

Marvel did not disappoint with Thor, they really went all out to make sure this movie doesn’t disappoint. Chris Hemsworth was the perfect Thor, attitude and look, and he did look like a God of Thunder in that suit. Anthony Hopkins played the perfect Odin, the All Mighty Father of Asgard. You get a lot of story in a short movie, you get a touch of Asgard, The Destroyer from Asgard, and a lot of the comics. Honestly I really enjoyed the movie and there is a lot to love, the battle scenes were perfect for Thor and how he fights in the comics. I will look forward to the next Marvel Movies coming up and how they are going to tie it all up together.

Marko Djurdjevic Comic Art

Marko Djurdjevic is the founder of SIXMOREVODKA concept art studio. He has done some awesome redesigns for Spider-Man and The Fantastic Four in the past, but here’s a collection with a lot of his other work, which is all very cool stuff. His stuff has this old school classic Alex Ross kind of feel to it.

Marko is one of those artists that really know how to bring out the real look of the characters. I love what he did with the spiderman suit it looks like a new age spiderman with the fantastic four. Sometimes I prefer the new modern looking comics but these realistic looking designs are amazing as well, I can never get tired of comics.
