Just got word from Kotobukiya that the company will be bringing master sculptor Mr. Junnosuke Abe to the San Diego Comic-Con to do live sculpting demonstrations. Beginning on Thursday July 23, Abe-sensei will start with raw materials, and by the end of the show on Sunday, he will have the first draft of a brand new sculpture completed.Â Fans will be able to see firsthand as Abe-sensei creates a work of art, and visit the Kotobukiya each day to see his progress. Abe is the artist behind the ARTFX statues and sculptures of the AVP Warrior Alien, the Star Wars
Kotobukiya announced anotherÂ San Diego Comic-Con exclusive in the form of X-Force: Wolverine Fine Art Bust. Posed as though daring an enemy to make the first move, Wolverine turns to the side with his right arm raised up and the left pointed down.Â His claws, 2 1/3 inches long and made of real metal, are extended on both hands.Â As part of The Kotobukiya Collection of Fine Art Busts, Wolverine stands 9 inches tall, and is constructed of cold cast porcelain.Â Â Logan is sculpted by master artist Junnosuke Abe and rests atop a specialized base decorated by a relief sculpture
Damn Those Frogs! BPRD has become one of those soap opera comics where characters come and go, and those that readers thought dead return from the dead.Â Itâ€™s also a series that has had some very major arcs, that at times seem disjointed from one another until the doo-doo meets the spinning prop.Â The Black Goddess series started off as a story yanked from a different time, but by issues end, it all comes together George Peppard style.
