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.

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.
