One of the greatest contributors to FIRESTORM FAN is Jon from FIZZIT, the Firestorm-themed blog. Jon has been extremely generous allowing us to publish scans of his art collection, including original Firestorm pages and tons of convention sketches. In fact you can view scans of his entire art collection online by clicking here.
Yes, Jon has been a huge friend to FIRESTORM FAN. But I’ll let you in on a little secret. Shhhh.. don’t tell anyone..
I hate Jon.
Yup, there I said it. It’s out there. Why do I hate Jon? It has nothing to do with his personality. He’s a super-nice guy and incredibly generous allowing me to publish these scans. He hasn’t offended me or my family. I simply hate Jon because he owns stuff I want. And he lives in New Zealand, so he’s too far away for me to break into his house and steal things. Grrr…
Oh well, I guess today we’ll look at some more really friggin’ cool original drawings owned by stinkin’ Jon. First up is the original artwork to Ethan Van Sciver’s cover for The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men #5! A seriously impressive find! Jon mentioned this drawing works better in black and white, and I’m inclined to agree with him. Click the image to enlarge so you can see Van Sciver’s amazing detail.
Next up is Ethan Van Sciver’s gorgeous cover to The Fury of Firestorm: The Nuclear Men #6. This is one of my all-time favorite Firestorm covers! The interesting story about Jon buying this piece is that he and I were bidding against each other on eBay for this! Too funny! That lucky devil Jon won the auction. *grumble* *grumble* Click the image to enlarge so you can see Van Sciver’s amazing detail.
Support Firestorm (and Jon, who I don’t like)! Fan the flame!
