Marvel Bronze Age Sketchcards – inks

Anyone who knows me at all knows that the Marvel Comics “Bronze Age” is my favorite period in comics – well, not just Marvel, but all comics. 1970 through the late 1980s is the golden age of my person comic book collecting.

When I was asked recently by the fine folks over at Rittenhouse to contribute some original sketchcard pieces to their upcoming “Marvel Comics Bronze Age” trading card set, I was incredibly excited. For those of you who aren’t familiar with what I’m talking about when I say “sketchcards,” what I mean is pieces of original artwork, drawn on blank trading card stock, are randomly inserted into the printed trading card packs as a surprise or chase-style card for collectors. Instead of just getting a rare printed card, a fan has one chance per box of cards to get an original sketch. It’s a pretty cool idea and it was a lot of fun to be a part of.

Here are a few of the unfinished cards I’m contributing to the set – these are all in black and white, but will be colored with markers when I’m done. I’ll post more information once I get word on when the set is coming out and all that fun stuff. For now, here’s the art!
