Comics and CosplayDays Of Past Future: Marvel's Cool February Retro Variant CoversComics and Cosplay - RSS 2.0
Phil Noto's old timey covers pretty much nail the look and feel of a time when magazines bestrode the world like a colossus. No, not that Colossus.
Phil Noto is a damned fine artist who has done a lot of great work in comic books. A veteran of Marvel, DC, Dark Horse and Image, his work has tackled a wide variety of series and characters including the likes of Batgirl, Uncanny X-Force and more. As great as his contributions to the industry have been however, his latest project could arguably stand as one of his greatest.
Tasked with creating a series of variant covers for Marvel's February release lineup, he produced a collection of art pieces coupling Marvel's heroes with a visual style drawn from the magazines and photos of the 1950s and 60s. Marvel recently released a nice batch of them and so we though it'd be a great opportunity to share some excellent art, along with our brilliant opinions.
