MAKING A MARK: Eddie Nunez

Every week, Making A Mark features an insanely talented person and gives them a little artistic brag space right here on IADW. This week, with Valentines Day just a day away, I looked for a portfolio of characters I love, but ones who don't often grab the spotlight. The winner: Eddie Nunez;

Really showing off why Red Tornado is a force of nature, I love how imposing the android looks without the 'from the waist down tornado' thing going on. Generating his own, from inside the heart of one!

Easilly one of the top three heroes of the DCU, Martian Manhunter is the true 'visitor from another planet' whose cape you should never tug on, and boy does he look like it here!

Considering how well Batman would work in the world of Alice in Wonderland, few Bat-rouges are as interesting as The Mad Hatter - and Eddie's version really puts the Arkham Asylum into the little guy!

Hobgoblin may be my pick of Spider-goblin's, but Green Goblin menacingly slips in here because as I've said before, the classic Amazing Spider-Man logo is the best comic masthead ever (plus you can never have enough pumpkin bomb wielding characters)!

For more great art and character sketches from this American artist, visit Eddie Nunez's online gallery here.

  2. I know what you mean David - the perspective on each is just crazy cool, right down to the small details like the flaps of RT's boots blowing in the wind!

  3. Love the guy's style. It's got an animation feel to it, and not just in the look of the characters (the colors just make the characters pop right off the page). The way he captures movement, it looks like there's some actual motion going on. The guy does some amazing work.

  4. ...and a nice touch with the V-D Day celebratory masthead.
