Archie Comics has announced Adam Hughes will write and provide the art for a new Betty & Veronica series launching in July.
Do we really need an excuse to show off art work by Adam Hughes? Really? Okay – With all the Intardwebz abuzz over the announced Before Watchmen event from DC Comics, we get our first look at the cover to Before Watchmen: Dr. Manhattan featuring Adam Hughes’ wonderful wonderfulness.
Press Release The Baltimore Comic-Con is happy to announce the addition of Josh Middleton, Adam Hughes, Tony Harris, and Francesco Francavilla to the line-up of creators appearing at this year’s show. The show will be taking place the weekend of August 20-21, 2011 at the Baltimore Convention Center.
Batgirl is coming back to the new DC in full force with Gail Simone telling tales of Barbara Gordon back in the costume. Adam Hughes is doing the cover art, and last night on Twitter, the artist shared the cover to issue #2.
Adam Hughes art is extremely expensive for the average comic book art fan. His early sketches are even more rare and hard to come buy, which is why the current eBay auction featuring his sketch of Jenny Mays of The Maze Agency series makes us take notice.
Or – “I Seriously Looked For This One FOREVER!” I’ve mentioned it before, but comic collecting is a very hit-and-miss kind of hobby. For every time someone walks in with a Budweiser box full of Claremont/Cockrum X-Men, there are half a dozen people who want 1,000,000 bucks for the 1994 reprint copy of Action Comics #1. (These are, by the way, true stories.) For me, my most difficult finds include a complete run of Howard The Duck Magazine, all the 70’s Atlas Comics, the Defenders issue of Marvel Treasury Edition, and a complete run of Jack Q. Frost. (The Q
Over the last decade, statues have been fighting comic books and trade paperbacks for shelf space in the Major Spoilers Nerd Room of Doom. There’s something about a three dimensional sculpt that brings the four color character to life. But what good are these statues (limited run, mass produced, and so on), if you can’t share their beauty with others? This week, we kick off a really long series of galleries of some of the statues in our vast collection, and we’re starting with the Women of the DC Universe.
When it comes to drawing beautiful women, Adam Hughes is at the top of the list. The artist did a warm up sketch of Zatanna (he’s taking over cover duties beginning with issue #11), and that Copic marker on drawing paper just fetched $3,270 on eBay.
Some really don’t like how Adam Hughes takes characters and makes them sexy. Some might say, he makes characters too sexy, but those people would be wrong, and need to seek medical attention immediately. Way back when Hughes was doing G.I. JOE cover work, his original rendition of The Baroness was rejected, forcing him to tweak the design. Take the jump to see the original submission, and the redo (which was also rejected).
I’m in the mood to feature some Adam Hughes art today, as I know it drives some of you insane when you see a girl with big boobs and a tiny waist. This time, I think I might agree with you as Hughes offers up an image that looks really great on the top half of the body, but I think she looks too boney on the lower half. And yes, I’m waiting to see how long it takes someone to make a comment that includes Bone, Body, and Lower Half… pervs.
