Note: Marvel’s Firestar never looked so good, and that’s thanks to Luc Latulippe. Done for the excellent blog The Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe – Redux Edition, this piece is surprisingly simple, so much so I’m sure other artists are jealous they didn’t think of it first. Simply by studying the original design and carrying it out to its full potential, Latulippe has made Ms. Jones a real fireplug. – Chris A.
Note: Bill Walko does it again! P:R readers should remember his work from the frequent submissions he’s done for us over the years, and this newest piece really digs deep into a fondly-remembered 80s cartoon series of mine. Stay tuned for Bill’s commentary below the art! – Chris A.
Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends: “Chillin’ In The Crime Lab”
Ah, the Spider-Friends. One of my favorite cartoons as a kid… probably because Spider-Man, Iceman and Firestar were so much cooler and funnier than the Superfriends. And remember how their apartment converted into a high-tech crime lab with the twist of that football trophy? Well, here it is — the Spidey Pals – Pete, Bobby, Angelica and even Ms. Lion – in their civvies. I took the look they had in the show and gave ‘em some more modern looks. Spider Friends…. go for it.
