12 CANDLES: Marko Djurdjevic's Marvel 70th Anniversary Variants

It's been a while since I posted any art from Marko Djurdjevic and frankly I'm going through a few withdrawal symptoms. In 2009 the 'bigger than superstar' artist did a range of variant covers to celebrate Marvel's 70th birthday, yet the covers were extra hard to come by, due to the system used to allocate the books to retailers.

While I thought Spider-Woman would've taken the generic Marvel heroine spot over Ms. Marvel, the 12 covers and their subjects are simply amazing. And if you haven't managed to cast your eyes over all twelve you can now spy the first three below and then the other nine after the jump. Handy huh?

  1. there's a Comic Book shop in Berkeley California that was giving away free calendars earlier this year that featured this guys art. i should have grabbed more then one. February (Ms. Marvel) was especially nice! this guys style reminds me a lot of Alex Ross which is pretty high praise.

  2. Wow David - wish my LCS did stuff like that. I am a big Marko fan, I can't quite pinpoint what it is about his style, but yeah it definitely catches my eye every time out that's for sure!

    Now if only he'd do a giant Fantastic Four image with Galactus etc like he has for the X-Men, Avengers, and Daredevil...
