HYBRID! plus, new Sal Buscema commission art


Finally I have some good fan art to share but this actually is from way back in 2007 and it's by a fellow by the name Guillaume Prevost. I came across this art work on comicartfans.com a while back but I dunno why I didn't pick it up at the time. As you can see this is pretty good Prevost definitely captures the whole "mucusy " menacing creepiness that is Hybrid.
Also, check this out you'll get a kick out of this blog posting from last year it's got something for you to laugh at for Rom fans and fans of Marvel 80s in general
http://gone-and-forgotten.blogspot.com/2013/06/the-only-avengers-left.html  And now here's something much more recent from our pal Sal this is just all sorts of awesome . . .

A couple more things before I go. That ebay Rom custom auction will be finished sometime this afternoon so you might want to be sure to check it out and see how it ended. Also, I'll be going to see Captain America (ironic that Sal has Rom and Cap. standing next to each other) tomorrow so I'll probably update this posting with some spoiler free feed back on what I thought.

Winter Soldier: Just got back from seeing this today (Sat.) and I thought it was pretty good. It had a lot going on so I'm still digesting it so to speak my only criticism off hand is that I wish they had given the Maria Hill character more to do. I'm sure I'll have more to say about it in the next few days.

  4. K.oT., yeah that's a nice chunk of change but I like to look at it as a testament to the enduring fan base for the character. you should check out that link in the posting it kinda speaks to that.

    Joseph, your comments should have had bullet points : )

    rt, the day I have nothing to post other then stuff that Rom fans have already heard of or seen is the day i'll call it quits.

  5. That hybrid is slick looking. I love how menacing and gross he looks. And what can you say about that Sal art? It's just stunning, he is a master of his craft. I really love Nova's classic look too.

    1. yeah that is some pretty cool stuff I found on Thursday. that Hybrid piece was languishing in obscurity in some lonely corner of comicartfan.com it's long past time it get some due exposer although I'm sure that new Sal commission will have no trouble making the rounds on the net he indeed is a master. worse thing that ever happened in the Rom series was when he and Bill part ways the art work that followed as you know was atrocious to me. gonna go see Winter Soldier in a couple hours i'll be back here to let you all know how it was thanks for swinging by Vis.

    1. yeah there's some things i would nit pick about it but overall i'd say it was quite good but i think i need to see it again. i just have the feeling i'll get more out of it a second time around. just a heads up it's been a real drought of good fan art so i'm working on something. i should have it done in the next day or so.

  7. Love that Sal Buscema piece. I've always liked those drawings when the artists drew themselves with the characters they're most associated with.

  8. A big thank you to Shlomo Ben Hungstien for sharing my version of "Hybrid" in this blog for Rom fans I appreciate your comments. Also thank you to quote artists (I saw the ROM version by Yildirai Cinar, what a beautiful illustration). I came across you by chance on your blog well after drawing this character that I enjoyed in youth's reading where Rogue, Mystique and Destiny had taken time to rescue the space Knights.
    Sincerely grateful
    Guillaume
