But, you ask, why am I talking about this movie? Because long before he became a motion picture star, Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, was the star of a series of comic and magazine adventures published by Marvel—and StarWarp Concepts’ very own artistic legend, Bob Larkin, painted the cover for one of them!

marvel-preview18

What you see here is the cover of Marvel Preview #18, with Quill in his 1970s-era costume—a lot more superheroish than what you saw in GotG, but what would you expect from a company that specializes in superhero comics? (Bonus tidbit: the male model who posed for this painting was actor Steve Holland, who not only played Flash Gordon in a popular 1950s television series, but whose rugged features, from the ’70s to today, remain the gold-standard look for pulp adventurer Doc Savage. Holland posed for Doc covers not only for Bob, but for Bob’s mentor, superstar painter James Bama.)

Larkin_large_cover1 By the way, science fiction comic book fans, have you purchased a copy of The Bob Larkin Sketchbook? If not, you’re missing out on spectacular pencil drawings of Richard Rider, the original Nova (from GotG’s Nova Corps), the X-Men, the Hulk, Luke Skywalker, and a host of other characters by the talented Mr. Larkin. It’s 24 pages of artistic goodness, available exclusively from the StarWarp Concepts webstore. Visit the Bob Larkin Sketchbook product page for all the ordering information, as well as sample pages.

Loelei: Sects and the City And if Mature Readers horror graphic novels are what you like to read, then allow me to point you to Lorelei: Sects and the City, the StarWarp Concepts graphic novel that stars a soul-stealing succubus in battle with a cult of Elder God worshipers attempting to unleash hell on Earth. This critically acclaimed adventure is written by Steven A. Roman (that’s me), and illustrated by Eliseu Gouveia (Vengeance of the Mummy), Steve Geiger (Web of Spider-Man), and Neil Vokes (The Black Forest), with a cover by legendary artist Esteban Maroto (Vampirella). Visit the Lorelei: Sects and the City product page for all the ordering information, as well as sample pages.

Featuring full-color illustrations first published in 1883, this digital-exclusive title is available for immediate download for the low price of just 99¢!

Shoutbox

SteveRoman:iconsteveroman:
THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS (Orbit): A great, unique zombie novel by M. R. Carey (aka Mike Carey, former writer of DC's Hellblazer). Recommended—go track down a copy and give it a read!
Wed Dec 10, 2014, 6:00 PM
SteveRoman:iconsteveroman:
STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS: In just over a minute, J.J. Abrams's teaser trailer for the next SW got the old fan in me excited for the first time in a looong time. Bring on December 2015!
Fri Nov 28, 2014, 10:11 AM
SteveRoman:iconsteveroman:
THE FLASH (CW) and CONSTANTINE (NBC): Who knew I'd be enjoying these series this much? Too bad there'll never be a crossover...
Sun Nov 23, 2014, 8:58 AM
SteveRoman:iconsteveroman:
JOSE GONZALEZ'S VAMPIRELLA: ART EDITION: Full-sized reproductions of classic Vampi art pages, coming from Dynamite Entertainment in 2015! There goes *my* money...
Sat Nov 8, 2014, 12:28 PM
SteveRoman:iconsteveroman:
3 DAYS TO KILL (Relativity): Kevin Costner is a CIA "cleaner" who has to balance a fatal illness with one last mission while he tries bonding w/his estranged daughter. A good actioner from director McG & producer Luc Besson.
Wed Oct 29, 2014, 6:21 AM
SteveRoman:iconsteveroman:
JOHN WICK (Lionsgate): Keanu Reeves kicks much ass and shoots lots of people in the head in this fast-paced action film. And the moral of the story? Never shoot John Wick's dog—it makes John tense.
Wed Oct 29, 2014, 6:15 AM
SteveRoman:iconsteveroman:
DOCTOR WHO: THE 12TH DOCTOR #1 (Titan): Some good Doctor/Clara interplay and Moebius/Heavy Metal–inspired artwork make for a great kickoff to this new series of adventures. Recommended.
Sun Oct 19, 2014, 6:16 AM
SteveRoman:iconsteveroman:
RAGNAROK #1 (IDW): Walt Simonson has never lost a step in artistic quality, and this debut issue of his creator-owned series is absolute proof of it! Recommended.
Mon Aug 25, 2014, 5:53 AM
SteveRoman:iconsteveroman:
LETTER 44, Vol. 1: ESCAPE VELOCITY (Oni Press): An interesting premise of a new POTUS learning of a secret space mission launched by his predecessor. Will it lead to first contact...or the first volley fired in a space war?
Thu Aug 7, 2014, 11:33 AM
SteveRoman:iconsteveroman:
DOCTOR WHO: THE 11th DOCTOR #1 (Titan Comics): Another woman of color aboard the TARDIS, to complement 10's companion in his new series? When did DW comics become more progressive than the TV show? Recommended.
